    According to published reports, this app has officially been submitted to Apple. I guess it's only a matter of time before Apple scoffs at it and brushes it aside. Hell, who knows... Maybe it'll sneak through like xRoad's G-Map apps did, although I still can't figure out how the heck they got by the SDK's explicit restrictions against real-time, turn by turn gps navigation apps.

    Well hey why not. I hear it works well. Those are obvious the best ways to get home....

    More than likely, they have a plan with Google to release it later. As a great new package. 'January Software Update' anyone?

    ALK have already previewed CoPilot on the iPhone. Apple will not let them release it as it breaches the T&C of the SDK.
    They are in talks with Apple but will not release without Apple's permission as they have to use the SDK.

    But 25? If that's all you guys are willing to pay for proper SatNav they probably won't bother LOL

    xGPS is free - and very good for the price (not knocking them in any way - looking forward to their relese tomorrow - check it out) but it's not proper SatNAv - and you won't get proper SatNav for 25 - but if Apple have their way we wont get proper SatNav at all

    Yeah I'd be willing to way around $70-90 for a proper GPS turn-by-turn and all the jazz application/suite for the iPhone.

    The people mentioning releasing this for free are hilariously dreaming in clouds.

    I'm a helpful jerk, fear me.

    Just paid $89 for Garmin Mobile XT for my wife's new Nokia E71. If any voice GPS program ever comes to the iPhone, I'd expect to pay around the same amount...

    Its not like apple dont get money from appstore apps, I don't understand why apple won't listen to their customers and provide some of the necessary features it lacks. They don't even need to do any work, the app is ready let it in the appstore!

    If only there was an application on the phone in which you could search for an address and then use your GPS-based current location to get directions to it...

    CoPilot uses Windows Live search so you can search for things on that and navigate to them or, obviously, any address in your address book, just waiting for them to get a fully working version for the iPhone and they are just waiting for Apple to give them the go ahead...

    I was sarcastically referencing the Maps app we already have as a point for having the GPS on the phone already...

    You'll never get a GPS for 25$. An annual map update from garmin costs $100 alone.

    Best way to go is release it on Cydia and sell it ona subscription basis : $2 per month!

    I would go with the other guy's GPS solution (xGPS is it) which is atleast released as a beta (turn by turn) works great already! Voice pending!

    Search Google for "Custom Firmware 3.1.2" if you don't have a Mac and are using Windows!

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA HAHAHAHAHAH God that just made my week, maybe month.

    If/when a full fledged GPS-navigation app comes out to the phone, everyone should be fully aware that you WILL have to pay at a minimum $70-100. And that's without the yearly update, other region map packs, and other changes brought through time.

    EDIT: to add some more content. The reason all GPS and navigation software is because they need to make/license the map data. You can't just go and use google map on the iphone for navigation since the apps don't have the license to use it, so they need to bring their own. This means 1 of 2 things: Either the app itself will store the map information, making them HUGE in size depending on how much you have or they have to set up a streaming function a la google maps, which is a whole other mess and they rarely go that way. So fully expect to pay 30-50 for the app and then 70-100 for map packs. Just go to any Garmin/Magellan GPS solution and check their prices, that's what you're going to have to pay.

    Sygic themselves is just jumping into the market so most of their stuff is on trial. However, they have a sweet thing going by not making a GPS device themselves and instead making software for phones/PDAs. How much this will save in costs, who knows.

    IMO this is just never going to happen in a legit way.
    To Generate and update maps cost much more money than people are willing to spend for an Iphone based system so even if the App store was to pick up this prg, as pointed out before it would cost about $100 plus a annual map charge of probably another $50-$100.

    The only way this is going to ever work is if it's a Cydia app and the maps are "borrowed" from some larger company.
