Princeton, NJ (PRWEB) May 13, 2014
ALK Technologies, a global leader in GeoLogistics™ solutions and navigation software, today announced a new update for its family of CoPilot mobile GPS navigation apps, available to all 10-million CoPilot users worldwide. CoPilot v9.6 introduces CommuteMe™ to reduce driver commute times, a new easy to use drag-and-drop trip planning tool and enhanced Point-of-Interest (POI) search along your route.
"CoPilot v9.6 introduces unique adaptive learning technology and smarter route searching to make your daily drive more predictable and less stressful," said David Quin, vice president of consumer business at ALK Technologies. "It's the latest step in our mission to make every journey easier and more efficient through advanced navigation technology".
New features in CoPilot v9.6 include:
CommuteMe takes the hassle out of the daily drive by intelligently learning a driver’s preferred route to and from work. It then automatically scans the route for traffic to avoid delays and provide an accurate arrival time. If a driver starts to prefer a new route, CommuteMe recognizes the change and proactively adapts.
Drag-and-Drop Trip Planning
CoPilot v9.6 makes planning multiple stop trips easy with a new drag-and-drop trip editing tool. CoPilot’s unique trip optimization technology can also automatically re-sequence stops into the most efficient route.
Intelligent POI Search On Your Route
CoPilot's new smarter POI search finds all the useful places you need on the road ahead, based on your route and the direction you’re traveling, rather than by simple geographic proximity. It avoids unnecessary detours to places off-route or behind you, saving time and fuel.
Windows Phone 8 Voice Command Support
For Windows Phone 8 users only. CoPilot now responds to voice commands for hands-free control. Just say, “CoPilot, take me home,” or “CoPilot, take me to work,” and the app will do just that.
The CoPilot North America apps also now include the complete street-level map of Puerto Rico for reliable offline routing and guidance.
CoPilot v9.6 is available immediately as a free update for existing iOS, Android and Windows Phone 8 users.
