After our announcement at Mobile World Congress and months of meticulous testing on Windows Phones such as Lumia 920, HTC’s Windows Phone 8X and Samsung’s Ativ S, we are very excited to announce that our award-winning free CoPilot GPS navigation app is now available to download from the Windows Phone Store for Windows Phone 8 (link)
Our first CoPilot for Windows Phone 8 is ‘CoPilot GPS’ – our free to use app that brings a complete suite of advanced trip-planning features to help make every journey easier:
✔ Premium quality 2D street maps stored on-board your Windows Phone for offline use
✔ Millions of Points of Interest (POIs) built in
✔ Powerful route planning with a multi-stop trip optimizer
✔ Alternate Routes: up to 3 ways to your destination
✔ Drag and drop route editing
✔ Driving directions: manually scroll through the turns to your destination
✔ Walking mode: explore unfamiliar cities on foot with confidence
✔ Social sharing: let your friends know where you are with Twitter & Facebook status updates*
✔ Useful local content: discover interesting places and attractions nearby with Yelp, Wikipedia and Google
✔ Global map regions available to purchase and store on the device as required
The app also includes 14 days free use of full voice-guided 3D navigation and ActiveTraffic™. After 14 days you can continue to enjoy the free features or upgrade to unlimited turn-by-turn navigation via in-app purchase.
We are delighted to be back on the Windows platform – the first ever version of CoPilot was after all built for Windows! As with all the platforms we support, we will of course keep on improving the app to make sure to offer best experience possible. So dear Windows Phone 8 fans, if you spot an issue in this first release or have a suggestion for something we can improve, please let us know through our user forum: http://forum.copilotlive.com/copilotliver
Happy travels from CoPilot!
