3- use app FolderMount to link/move the folder that contains the maps on "internal SD" to the external SD (let it do by itself when it asks)
4- "unpin" the folders in FolderMount
5- start Copilot again, it will says that you need to download a map... do it for another map of US
6- move manually the downloaded map to the external SD folder created by FolderMount
7- repeat from step 5 to 6 until you've downloaded all the maps you need
8- once you're done, "pin" the folders in FolderMount

There ! you have all the fragmented US maps on the SD instead of the big US or North America

Original folder is in internal sd (sdcard0), maps for North America (NA) are in:

sdcard0/com.alk.copilot.namarket.premiumusa/NA/1/

(this path is for Copilot Premium, don't know for the other version)

FolderMount will create automatically a copy of that path on ext. SD, you want to move the maps folders to that path ("eastern", "midwest", etc.)

Basically, both FolderMount and Lucky Patcher methods are doing the same thing, except there are situations where FolderMount didn't work (me ) ).
