There’s a new sat nav phone in town, and it’s got CoPilot Live pre-installed as standard. It’s good to see that the new Xda Guide from O2 has started appearing in stores around the UK. Featuring a custom, fully-integrated edition of CoPilot Live and supplied with an in-car holder and charger, it’s the ideal portable and flexible alternative to a dedicated sat nav system.
O2 has been including CoPilot with their ‘navigation-centric’ smartphones for some time, most notably the wildly successful Xda Orbit and Orbit 2. It’s an integral feature on the new Xda Guide, with seamless access from the phone’s Navipanel, Footprints geotagged photos application and from the navigation button on the front of the device. UK and Ireland maps are included as standard, preloaded on a memory card with the device, so as with all CoPilot products, there’s no need to rely on the mobile network every time you want to go somewhere.
It’s available from free with certain pay-monthly contracts, and you can’t really argue with that in these credit crunch times!
