The CoPilot navigation app has received an update that brings a whole bunch of new features.

Version 9.6 unveils the new CommuteMe feature, which looks to learn the user’s daily commute and then provides live traffic and arrival estimation info on the fly. It also gives users the ability to add a point of interest as the next stop without altering the final destination, as well as drag & drop functionality that allows for trip editing and improved POI searching.

There is also an update to the North American map database.

Parent company ALK Technologies consumer business vice president David Quinn mentioned the company’s mission in a press release. “CoPilot v9.6 introduces unique adaptive learning technology and smarter route searching to make your daily drive more predictable and less stressful,” he said. “It’s the latest step in our mission to make every journey easier and more efficient through advanced navigation technology”.

We had a look at CoPilot a while back; it is available on the App Sore for $19.99.
