ALK release CoPilot version 7

ALK, the people behind the fabulous CoPilot sat nav software have just released the latest version, v7, of CoPilot Live.

CoPilot Live 7

CoPilot Live 7

The award winning CoPilot Live 7 has arrived! With completely redesigned map views, a simpler user interface and the latest street maps – CoPilot Live is now better than ever.

Providing full-featured voice-guided satellite navigation onboard a mobile phone, CoPilot Live 7 offers the same performance and ease of use as a dedicated or in-dash system. Redesigned destination entry makes going to places simple, with step-by-step address entry, finger-touch buttons and predictive address matching. Frequently used features are quickly accessible such as changing the view, finding a detour or locating the nearest petrol station or car park.

The new 2D and 3D map views on CoPilot Live 7 enable drivers, cyclists or pedestrians to see their exact location and the way ahead clearly and easily using their mobile phones. As with all CoPilot navigation solutions, Driver Safety is the priority so by default a map is only shown close to a turn or junction, progressively zooming-in before returning to the non-distracting safety screen. Comprehensive voice directions are spoken at each turn, further removing the need to glance at the screen.

CoPilot Live 7 incorporates the latest street mapping and points of interest from NAVTEQ with streets of Western Europe accurate down to house number and 7 digit UK post code. Additional map regions are available to purchase and download from the supplied CoPilot Central desktop companion, including Eastern Europe, South Africa, Australia, Middle East and North America.

Now you can enjoy the same navigation experience on your Smartphone or PDA as you’d expect from a dedicated or in-dash system.

  • NEW! Smooth and clear 3D/2D maps, 3D Points of Interest Icons and choice of colour schemes
