CoPilot iPhone app for Europe to include premium connected services

ALK Technologies has announced that its best-selling iPhone sat nav app – CoPilot Live – is now available across Europe for Apple iPhone 3G and 3GS.

Currently the #1 paid GPS navigation app in the UK, France and Italy, CoPilot Live brings full featured turn-by-turn navigation to iPhone, complete with automatic route calculation, easy to follow 3D map displays and clear turn-by-turn voice directions.

On the road, iPhone users will enjoy sophisticated guidance features usually found in the most expensive standalone or in-car systems. Features include lane assistance, realistic signpost displays and speed limit alerts. Complex motorway and major road exits are made simpler with CoPilot ClearTurn™, providing a more realistic junction display.

Unlike some more expensive navigation apps, CoPilot Live makes the most of the phone’s in-built mobile Internet connection, providing useful connected ‘Live’ services including Live weather information and a free location-sharing service called LiveLink™. A range of additional premium Live services will be available (selected regions only) to purchase in September, including real-time traffic information, fuel prices at nearby petrol stations and Live local search.

CoPilot Live is available to buy from iTunes and iPhone App Store as single map region versions for €33.99 and with full European map coverage for €79.99. Pricing is for unlimited use, with no on-going fees or subscriptions.
