Despite the iPhone nature of the above video, Co-Pilot Live is a GPS alternative for you Android device that you may need to take a look at. As Android users, we already have a great GPS solution with Google Maps built into our handsets, but Maps is dependent on always having a network signal to drive the map info. Simply put, the map info is not installed on your handset, but on Google’s servers so you can access to info quickly as you move. Traditional GPS units store all their map info internally, which allows you to always have your map info wherever you go. Co-Pilot Live makes your Android handset behave more like a traditional GPS, by installing almost 1.5 GB of map info to your handset.
With a download of that size, this app is certainly not for lower end Android handsets. I am in the process of trying the app out on a Samsung Vibrant, and will let you know what I think on our AGTN Droid-cast in a week. The app right now is only $2.99 in the Android Market, so you really can’t go wrong to try it out. Let us know in the comments what you think.
