I installed CoPilot Premium on my A-1 today. It took almost 5 hrs to download the maps but the installation and setup was easy and by the time I had completed the setup stuff, the GPS had found my location without any help.
However, when I tried to input my home address (rural), it wouldn't except the street or number. I located it street on the map but it would only show odd numbers on that street. I finally had to settle for the house number across from mine.
Then I noticed CoPilot had a invite to submit errors, correction or omissions. I did that and got an assurance that the addition would be added in 45 days. Sound good to me.
On the Lenovo IdeaPad A1, I'm very pleased with the GPS and it seems to work well even in my house, which as a metal roof. It pulls down 6 to 9 sat's with a useable strength on about 6. Even better outside.
Now that I have a working map program, I will try it on the road for a while.
Reports to follow.
