CoPilot Live has just announced their latest free mobile app known as the CoPilot GPS, and for folks who are attending the ShowStoppers event or Mobile World Congress 2012 in Barcelona itself (which we are covering live), you ought to be able to find someone over at the CoPilot Live booth to deliver a hands-on demonstration of CoPilot GPS, in addition to whipping out a ready answer of course to just about any question that you might have concerning the app as well as its position within the GPS navigation market. Getting lost is no fun at all, and with CoPilot GPS, you need not fret even if you are in an unfamiliar place, and neither do you need to worry about folding pesky road maps ever again.
Sporting millions of pre-installed Points of Interest, it is a snap to look for places with Bing Search and Wikipedia. All detailed street maps of an entire country or region are already stashed away, so you need not worry about expensive data charges – especially when roaming overseas. The touted route planning feature will come with a multi-stop trip optimizer, and there are also 3 other alternative routes to your destination as a backup. Other features include driving directions, a walking mode for those who love being a pedestrian, as well as the ability to post Twitter and Facebook status updates – now those require a data connection, of course.
Expect CoPilot GPS to hit the Android Market and the iTunes App Store this Spring 2012, and you can always purchase voice-guided, turn-by-turn navigation for a one-time payment of $19.99 – which offers lifetime use, now how about that for value?
