ALK released free CoPilot Live navigation app for iPhone

updated 04:45 pm EST, Wed January 20, 2010

Maps can be added as an in-app purchasee

ALK Technologies has announced that its CoPilot Live Directions app is now available on the App Store as a 30-day free trial. The iPhone utility provides full navigation capabilities, including turn-by-turn instructions and voice guidance. Map data is stored locally on the handset, rather than constantly requiring a network connection when traveling.

After the free trial is complete, users can continue to use the basic map-only turn-by-turn directions for the US and Canada. The premium package with voice guidance and 3D maps can be added via an in-app purchase for a monthly or yearly subscription.

CoPilot Live Directions requires an iPhone 3G or 3GS running firmware v3.0 or later. The premium services are available for $20 per year or $3 per month, while a live traffic option can be added for $5.
