MWC: Co-Pilot Free GPS Announced

ALK Technologies, the company behind CoPilot Live GPS navigation, has released a new free GPS app for Android, iPhone and iPad.

CoPilot offers routing and mapping navigation on your smartphone. The app also has millions of points of interest preprogrammed into the app so that you can see what’s near you or look up destinations by name. It’s also integrated with Bing search and Wikipedia.

One of the big plusses for the CoPilot app is that detailed street maps for an entire region or country can be stored on the device which makes the GPS functional in off-line mode.

Sure we all use Google Maps and Google Maps navigation but some people like premium GPS apps from dedicated GPS companies. CoPilot gives the user that, free.

Here’s a list of features, after the break

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

·       Millions of pre-installed Points of Interest (POIs) with in-app dialing

·       Powerful route planning with multi-stop trip optimizer

·       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*
