    Yes - most in the UK

    The quality of maps varies from country to country as it depends on the map info available. The UK is very well covered as we have Ordinance Survey maps as a starting point. Ireland is pretty poorly covered as there is no base info. I'm not sure what it's like in Oz

    Visual - Yes, audio, not sure as I had my audio off today.

    Yes

    Yes - Can be added manually now if your phone is JB - will be included in app soon.

    Yes

    Copilot uses Navteq, the same map that Navigon is using. In Australia the map is atrocious. Lot of missing roads. In NSW and Queesland, speed limit is almost non-existent. In Victoria, only some roads has speed limit kept.

    ALK has consistently shown very little interest in Australia. As one of the former customers I was initially a big fan of theirs but not anymore.

    Then I guess CoPilot is not for you in Australia.
    Here in the UK though, it is excellent. As with most things, one size does not fit all.
