Difference Engine: Are we there yet? by N.V.
“Then there are paid navigation apps such as Navigon ($40) and CoPilot GPS ($10). Both function like high-end portable GPS devices, with spoken turn-by-turn driving instructions, points of interest, alerts for speed-limits and speed-camera locations.”
ASK MAGGIE: Can dataless smartphones still use GPS navigation apps?
“CoPilot GPS is a free app that also allows you to download maps for an country or region. It also offers “millions of points of interest.” This makes it easy to locate nearby restaurants, hotels, and more. But if you want voice guided directions, you’ll have to upgrade to a more expensive version of the service. You can get the U.S. map version for $10.”
‘CoPilot Live’ GPS App for iOS, Android is Worth A Test Drive by James A. Martin
“I could go on, listing even more useful or cool features, including free traffic updates for one year ($10 annually afterwards). When it comes to unique features, this is a terrific GPS navigation app.”
“By concentrating on being “clear and non-distracting” including a neat feature called Direction Screen (which only shows the maps/directions when a turn is approaching), CoPilot hope to bring a more polished and feature-complete driving experience. In short, CoPilot knows that they have to out-do and out-perform Nokia and even though they rely on the same mapping information (Navteq), CoPilot seems confident that they can bring their A-game to Windows Phone 8.”
“While most Windows Phone 8 users have at least one option for driving directions, that doesn’t preclude them opting for a little extra. ALK Technologies at least believes we’re willing to splurge, as it’s bringing versions of its CoPilot GPS apps to both Windows Phone 8 as well as Windows 8.”
We are very pleased to see the positive reaction to our exciting news this month and we’d like to extend a very special thank you to everyone that took the time to feature CoPilot on their site this month. As always, we greatly appreciate your support!

“If you don’t have a megabyte to spare, download the CoPilot GPS. Unlike Waze, this app is usable off the cell-grid. And unlike the downloadable competition, you can load maps by region—slashing the amount of memory the app hogs.”
“Merging together Bad Elf’s high performance GPS and CoPilot Live’s fully offline maps and routing, consumers can now use their iOS devices to the full potential – all without having to add on additional monthly data charges or require another mobile Internet connection.”
