CoPilot Live iPhone Navigation app updated with new features

Full-featured Australia + New Zealand turn-by-turn GPS navigation app now includes Facebook status updates and greater personalisation

The latest updates to ALK Technologies’ CoPilot Live Australia and New Zealand iPhone satellite navigation app has been approved by Apple and is now available from the App Store.

Available free for existing customers, and to buy new for just $59.99, the updated app adds a new way to share your journeys through in-app Facebook status updates. Now you can let friends know where you are, where you are going and even what music you are listening to on the way.

The update also brings adjustable music volume settings. One of the most frequently requested features made by CoPilot Live iPhone customers, it allows you to mute or dim music while receiving a voice instruction.

Michael Kornhauser, Managing Director of ALK Technologies, said “We are constantly working to develop new and innovative features for CoPilot Live in response to customer feedback. This latest update expands CoPilot Live’s connected services, making it easy to share your journeys with your Facebook friends without having to leave your navigation app.”

The updated iPhone app provides full turn-by-turn navigation throughout Australia and New Zealand, complete with voice-guidance, automatic route calculation and detailed 3D street maps. CoPilot Live’s maps are stored on-board the iPhone, eliminating per-trip map downloads and reliance on the mobile internet for navigation. The app is available for a one-time fee of $59.99 for lifetime use.
