Do any of these other new ones allow you to create and/or save a route?
Copilot 6 let you do that so i would expect 7 to do so. From what I recall it was a far better system that TTN6.
I left copilot for TomTOm Navigator 6 becasue its routing kept taking me through cities, and not using by-passes even when real life they were far quicker. Other routing was great. I think it just had the wrong speed defined on some roads. TT's POIs and speedcams were easier to update. I liked everything else about Copilot more than TT. Don't know what 7 is like on that but i will likely move back in due course as TT are not updating the old maps I have got.
Oh, and I got a desktop version as well in the package.
This is what the COpilot 6 manual says
