From ALK
London, 9th September 2009 – ALK Technologies Ltd today released the first update for its best-selling iPhone sat nav app – CoPilot Live. Available for free to existing users, the automatic update brings a number of improvements and new features to UK and Ireland customers including safety camera alerts, the ability to dial a point of interest from within the app and improved GPS performance. CoPilot Live will now also automatically resume following a phone call.

Since its launch in August, CoPilot Live has had a significant impact on the UK iPhone App Store, and currently is the #1 paid navigation App. Customers enjoy full-featured navigation, complete with turn-by-turn voice guidance and detailed 3D street maps of UK and Ireland.

CoPilot Live makes the most of the phone’s in-built mobile Internet connection to provide useful connected ‘Live’ services including Live weather information and a free location-sharing service called LiveLink™. A range of additional premium Live services will be available to purchase in September, including real-time traffic information, fuel prices at nearby petrol stations and Live local search.

Michael Kornhauser, Managing Director of ALK Technologies Ltd, said “We are continually working to improve CoPilot Live, and the App Store distribution method helps us deliver our latest enhancements very easily and quickly to our customers. This first UK update is based on some of the great feedback we have already received. This is just the start of our continuous improvement plan which will hopefully keep CoPilot as the number one sat nav app for iPhone. We will be distributing updates for CoPilot Live Apps in every region on a regular basis.”

The CoPilot Live UK iPhone update is available for existing customers now via the App Store.

CoPilot Live for iPhone is available as UK + Ireland version for just £25.99 or a Pan-Europe version for £59.99. Single region versions are also available for most European countries for €33.99.
