CoPilot Live Premium USA for iPhone – Review

iPhoneGlance Rating [rating=5]

ALK Technologies navigation app for iPhone called CoPilot Live Premium is probably the best navigation system available for the iOS device. The app is packed with some amazing features, and you can get it at a low price of $14.99 for a limited time only. The normal price is $24.99.

CoPilot is easy to use but at the same time contains a huge number of advanced navigation features. Maps of USA are stored on the iPhone so there is no need to worry about losing directions when you hit a blackspot and better yet you won’t need to use your mobile service or data plan to get directions. Maps in 2D and 3D makes every direction clear and concise. Alternate routes makes it even more easier to get to your destination, choose from a choice of 3 alternate routes all with precise details of the time it will take and distance. Walking directions and a car finder to show you where you parked is a nice touch.

The app also have a category where you can narrow your search, for instances if you need a bank, bus station, event facility, even vehicle repair near you, CoPilot got you covered. There are some useful add-ons, like Active traffic which cost $9.99 a year, and fuel price information for $4.99 a year. Also you can get the map of Canada for only $4.99.

Using CoPilot Live Premium, I can say it stands up well to the other navigation apps for the iPhone, like TomTom and Navigon. Maps are detailed, voices are clear and of great quality. The CoPilot user interface is very responsive, I am also surprise by the fact that with all the features included in the app, it is still so easy to use.

On my next trip to the airport my iPhone will be on my dashboard with Copilot guiding the way. After all my iPhone is always with me, so I have now ditched the bulky TomTom and added a suburb GPS navigation system, CoPilot is great. The features can be see below and HERE.
