CoPilot Receives Update that Brings New Adaptive Learning Features and More

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.

• NEW CommuteMe™ feature learns your preferred daily commute and provides real-time traffic* and ETA info along that personal route you love. You know the one that gets you to work and home for dinner on time!

• NEW ability to add a POI as your next stop without altering your final destination

• NEW Drag & Drop trip editing to easily move stops up or down within your trip

• IMPROVED POI search on your route to find the closest POIs and save time by avoiding driving too far out of your way

• YOU ASKED FOR IT so we made it simple to change your CoPilot ID (email address) directly within CoPilot, just go to MyCoPilot > My Account

• ADDED the option to navigate to Decimal Minutes Coordinates

• NEW! Free map update – In addition to an update for our maps of North America, CoPilot now includes the complete street-level map of Puerto Rico for reliable offline routing and guidance.

Good news for those who use CoPilot Live, version eight. The developers, ALK Technologies, are offering a big upgrade free of charge to version nine. The new line of CoPilot Live GPS apps for the US and Canada still have access to live navigation, but now with more perks. The biggest addition is voiced turn-by-turn directions, no doubt a response to Apple’s iOS 6 announcement, but there’s more. The new routing features give you three different ways to find where you are going, each with information not only on distance but on mileage and with the year of free live traffic they are offering to new subscribers on their website it’s even better.

The new design is less distracting, with lane assist arrows and what they call “ClearTurn” display. There is also “Tap and Go” navigation which lets you literally just tap on a location on the map to get directions. It even has “social navigation” allowing you to check into Facebook and Twitter with your locale or to search Wikipedia or Bing’s Local Search from within the app. If you upgrade or try V9 for the first time, let us know what you think in the comments.

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Released: 2010-06-08 :: Category: Navigation

The team at ALK Technologies has launched its GPS navigation app, CoPilot Live HD, for the iPad on the App Store. The app has been designed specifically for the iPad 3G’s GPS receiver and large screen to provide turn-by-turn, voice-guided navigation.

With recent news of iPad’s being fitted into car dashboards, this is particularly exciting news for those shopping for a new SatNav device for their vehicle.

Street maps are stored on the device and the app can display both 2D and 3D map views with turn instructions for the driver. The app automatically switches between portrait and landscape view and provides iPod controls from within the application, another bonus for those planning to dashboard-mount their new Apple tablet or connect it to their in-car sound system.

CoPilot Live HD offers a feature for users to plan trips offline and preview routes to find the most efficient journey before setting out.

“CoPilot Live HD provides an absolutely sensational GPS navigation and planning experience on iPad 3G,” said Michael Kornhauser, Managing Director at ALK Technologies. “Developing for iPad was a natural step following the tremendous popularity of our CoPilot Live iPhone app. It’s a really fantastic platform for navigation that allows us to fully exploit the many years of expertise we have gained from supporting tablet computers with our CoPilot Live Laptop products.”

CoPilot Live HD is priced at $29.99 for unlimited use with free quarterly map updates through 2010.

Last week, I worked my way through all of the currently available iPhone on-board GPS applications. I stuck with just the applications that held all of the maps on-board — meaning that you didn’t need to have a network connection to use the maps or routing. CoPilot came out as our winner as it has the best features, though some very confusing, for it’s price.

But we thought it would be a good idea to do a re-cap and compare all 5 of the GPS I looked at last week and include the first iPhone GPS application, G-Map.
