Renault equips its New Twingo with CoPilot Live GPS navigation

Twingo

ALK Technologies, leading provider of mobile navigation software, today announced that its CoPilot Live GPS navigation app has been selected by Renault as an integral part of an iPhone-based infotainment system for the new Twingo.

CoPilot Live is fully integrated in-car as part of the revolutionary Oxygen Audio O Car system* available for the new Renault Twingo. Simply place your iPhone into the cradle and it becomes part of your car’s dashboard, allowing control of all car stereo functions through a dedicated app: e-Renault. The “most needed” tasks such as your Music, your Phone, your Navigation and the new Eco-Driving Renault feature are all easily accessible with a single tap while on the road.

The system brings outstanding interaction between phone and car. CoPilot Live’s voice-guided navigation instructions are seemlessly played through the Twingo’s audio system and speakers. Auto-muting of radio programmes and music ensure that Renault drivers won’t miss a turn, and navigation automatically pauses and resumes during and after phone calls.

Klaus Kremer – Director Business Development EMEA at ALK Technologies said “We are very proud that CoPilot Live has been selected as navigation provider by Renault for this ground-breaking project. It’s a demonstration of how the smartphone is becoming the hub of today’s connected vehicle.”

The Oxygen Audio O Car system is available as a dealer-fit option with the New Renault Twingo.

The e-Renault app will be available for free via the AppStore, and includes a 30 day navigation trial. After 30 days all features remain functional except for the navigation component. Users can purchase a full navigation license directly from the app.
