Smartphone GPS applications certainly seem to be the in-thing at the moment. Hot on the heals of their lastest iPhone App release, CoPilot have now released their CoPilot Live satellite navigation software for the Android OS, bringing full satellite navigation capabilities to devices such as the HTC Magic, T-Mobile G1 and the latest HTC Hero handset.
Android CoPilot Live will include new navigation and application features such as visual lane assistance for easier navigation at busy junctions and intersections, customisable speed limit warnings, and scrolling menus for easy access to settings.
New live services for Android users of CoPilot also include:
- CoPilot® LiveLink™ – a free to use location sharing service that allows you to view the current whereabouts of CoPilot friends on your device and share your location with friends and family online
- Live Weather – Displays a five day forecast based on your current location, on route or any chosen destination
CoPilot Live Android edition also contains a choice of 2D/3D and Driver Safety mode mapping as well as full, voice guided, turn by turn instructions. A safety camera database with free upgrades is also available.
Available from http://www.alk.eu.com, CoPilot Live for Android costs £25.99 for UK maps and £59.99 for European maps.
