Version 10 offers improved functionality, enhanced design and new interface
Princeton, N.J. –September 26, 2016 – ALK Technologies, a Trimble Company and global leader in GeoLogistics® and navigation software, today announced the release of CoPilot version 10, the next generation of its award-winning GPS navigation app.
Available for iOS immediately and Android following closely behind, the new version of CoPilot is faster and easier to use while providing enhanced safety features.
CoPilot v10 is built on the same GPS navigation platform that over 16 million drivers and professional fleets trust worldwide every day. It provides drivers with dependable offline maps, clear turn-by- turn guidance and powerful multi-stop trip planning.
“CoPilot v10 builds on CoPilot’s driver-friendly, offline car navigation and trip planning strengths while making the overall navigation experience simpler,” said David Quin, VP consumer applications at ALK Technologies. “We have made improvements throughout the app, taking into account feedback from millions of drivers, to provide the very best navigation experience possible on a mobile device. It’s our most powerful and dependable CoPilot yet, built to meet the demands of drivers worldwide.”
Key highlights of the next generation CoPilot app include:
Powerful Trip Planning
CoPilot automatically calculates three routes to a destination and real-time traffic speeds to provide the most accurate estimated time of arrival (ETA) to a destination. Multi-stop trip planning and advanced route optimization make the most complex itineraries simple.
Drivers should navigate the road, not their GPS device. CoPilot’s user interface has been completely redesigned to put the tools they need on the road a tap away. Enjoy quick, easy access to search and planning tools, mute voice directions and end navigation directly from the map.
Re-engineered ActiveTraffic™ Live Traffic Service
CoPilot’s integrated real-time traffic service has been re-engineered to avoid time wasted stuck in traffic. A new traffic status sidebar shows live conditions throughout the route with automatic re-routing around delays or closed roads.
A Driver-friendly CoPilot
CoPilot’s driving screen has been revisited to provide the clearest possible driving directions. On-screen text is bigger, colors more vibrant and buttons larger. In addition, new map styles provide automatic day and night background modes for optimized viewing.
Transformed Map Performance
CoPilot’s reliable offline maps are faster and smoother with pinch zoom, fluid map panning and scrolling.
Enhanced Driver Safety Alerts
Redesigned speed limit safety alerts warn drivers to help avoid exceeding the local limit and costly speeding tickets.
Easier Destination Search
CoPilot’s new unified search screen makes it quick and easy to find the places drivers need to get to, whether it’s a street address, favorite, recent or one of millions of preloaded Places.
