The turn-by-turn GPS application market just got a little more competitive this morning with ALK Technology’s release of CoPilot Live USA. Available for a one-time $4.99 purchase out of the Android Market, the application features 3D guided voice direction with street level maps that are stored directly to your handset. That means no downloading and rendering on the fly! We’re having a hard time figuring out which is better here – the fact that there is no monthly service fee or the idea that it works without a mobile data connection.
Other features include predictive address matching for destinations, millions of points of interest, and 14 days of CoPilot Live’s advanced real-time traffic information service, ActiveTraffic. The service, which calculates routes and ETAs based on current traffic conditions, is available as a separate purchase of $9.99 for 12 months of usage. Click here to download CoPilot Live USA!
