Introducing CoPilot for Windows Phone 8!

nokia lumia usThe CoPilot team have been long time fans of Microsoft’s mobile platforms, much like many of our users. Did you know our original CoPilot GPS navigation app, “Pocket CoPilot,” was developed for Microsoft’s Pocket PC? Back in those days apps were called applications and we had pioneered mobile navigation on Windows Mobile. Now here we are in 2013 announcing an app for Windows Phone 8 –and Windows 8 – at Mobile World Congress 2013.

 

Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 is gaining momentum as an alternative to Android and iOS in the global battle for smartphone supremacy. With some fantastic handsets from the likes of Nokia, HTC and Samsung, an innovative and polished user experience and a robust app store, it has become an ideal platform for CoPilot too.

 

So we are bringing the full CoPilot voice-guided navigation experience to Windows Phone 8 handsets and Windows 8 devices, with advanced turn-by-turn guidance features, comprehensive trip planning and of course quality street maps stored on-board for offline use. There’s a full suite of real-time ‘Live’ services include ActiveTraffic™, Yelp, Wikipedia and Google Search to keep you fully prepared and informed on the road.

 

We are showcasing the app on a variety of Windows Phones at Mobile World Congress in Hall 8.1, stand F6. The app itself will be available soon through the Windows Phone Store – so stay tuned!.

 

Meanwhile, here’s a gallery of pictures to browse. Read the full press release here.

    I am excited about this, but have some questions:
    1. Does your s/w announce the street or ramp by name at several intervals as you approach?
    2. Is your s/w fully integrated with internet searches, so I can just touch a phone number or an address, eliminating having to stop and type it in while driving?

    I have been using googles navigation which does these things, hence my questions.
