Just a very quick update on a post I wrote the other day – previously, ALK Technologies had announced that its CoPilot Live satellite navigation system had been approved for sale via the iPhone App Store and is now available in UK – well now it’s available in the US version of the App Store too!
ALK Technologies today announced that the North American version of its CoPilot Live GPS navigation system has been approved for sale on the iPhone App Store and is available immediately for iPhone 3G and 3Gs for a one-time fee of just $34.99. Detailed street maps of USA and Canada are stored on the phone – not downloaded each trip, so there’s no need for extra hardware and no monthly fees.
The announcement coincides with the news that CoPilot Live has raced to become #1 paid navigation app and has moved into the top 20 of all paid apps in the United Kingdom in just 1 week since launch.
CoPilot Live is available to buy immediately from iTunes and iPhone App Store. Special offer pricing at launch is $34.99 for maps of USA and Canada. Pricing is for unlimited use, with no on-going fees or subscriptions. For more information about CoPilot Live visit www.copilotlive.com/iphone
So there you have it – what looks like a great App, now available in the US, as well as the UK! I hope to be doing a review of it soon, so I’ll let you know what it’s like!
