ALK Technologies has announced CoPilot Live 9, their next generation GPS navigation platform for smartphones and tablet devices.

Featuring an all-new interactive user interface, routing technology and seamless access to useful local online content, CoPilot Live 9 provides intuitive and precise GPS navigation in-car or on foot.

Key innovations include:

  • Optimal Routes: CoPilot Live 9 finds the best way to any destination with a choice of up to 3 routes including journey time and mileage details. It’s easy to manipulate your route by simply dragging the route or a destination flag to a preferred street or location.
  • Intuitive and Interactive User Interface: CoPilot Live 9 puts advanced navigation features right at your finger tips. You can tap anywhere on any map within the app to navigate there, discover more information or share it with friends. Context-sensitive menus provide access to the features you need.
  • Enhanced Live Services: CoPilot Live 9 combines the reliability of on-board maps, stored locally on the mobile, with seamless access to useful real-time online content. ActiveTraffic uses live traffic flow information to intelligently calculate the fastest route available and automatically avoid delays. Fully integrated Bing local internet search makes it easy to find all the nearby businesses and services you need.
  • Social navigation: CoPilot Live 9 makes it easy to share journey details with friends through Facebook Places check-ins and in-app Twitter updates. It can also provide access to location-specific information from Wikipedia and NAVTEQ LocationPoint hyperlocal retailer offers.
  • Superior guidance: On the road, CoPilot Live 9’s dashboard-style map display is designed to provide clear, non-distracting directions. There’s a choice of 3D, 2D and Directions-only guidance views, while Lane Assist arrows and realistic ClearTurn display make navigating complex junctions less difficult. An all-new walking mode makes it easy to find the way around a city on-foot.
