ALK Technologies Announces FREE CoPilot GPS App


Today ALK Technologies Inc., one of the world’s leading developers of mobile navigation software, announced CoPilot GPS – a FREE route planning and mapping app for iPhone, iPad and Android devices.

CoPilot GPS makes it easy to find places you need and provides the best route to the door. Search the pre-installed points of interest for nearby restaurants, hotels and shops. Find local businesses and attractions using Bing and Wikipedia. There’s no need to rely on a mobile connection – detailed street maps of a country or region are stored on your smartphone or tablet, so CoPilot GPS still works even in off-line mode.

Once you’ve selected your destination, CoPilot GPS calculates a choice of routes with turn directions, distance and travel time for each. Advanced itinerary planning features usually reserved for premium paid navigation apps mean that you can enter up to 50 stops and CoPilot will find the best way to go.


Key features:

· Maps stored on-board your smartphone or tablet for off-line use

· Thousands of preinstalled Points of Interest (POIs) with in-app dialing

· Powerful route planning with multi-stop trip optimiser

· Alternate Routes: CoPilot provides up to 3 ways to your destination. Drag and drop the route to adjust.

· Driving directions: manually cycle through the turns to your destination

· Walking mode: explore unfamiliar cities on foot with confidence

· Social sharing: let your friends know where you are with Twitter & Facebook status updates*

· Dynamic local content: find useful and interesting places with Wikipedia and Bing Search*

CoPilot GPS users can also upgrade to full voice-guided turn-by-turn navigation via in-app purchase, and benefit from 3D map views, safety cameras alerts, speed limit warnings, and realistic ClearTurnT display at complex interchanges.

“Consumers are often left disappointed with free GPS apps because they usually rely on constant mobile data connectivity,” said David Quin, Head of Consumer Applications – ALK Technologies. “CoPilot GPS offers smartphone and tablet owners a free navigation app that won’t burn through their data plan, and will never leave them stranded without maps if they lose cell coverage.”
