With just 56 days until the start of the 2010 FIFA World Cup, soccer fans everywhere are starting to turn their attention towards the host nation, South Africa.
With individual matches spread between several cities over considerable distances (approximately 230 miles for the USA team’s first 3 games alone), many soccer fans will have the chance to explore South Africa’s striking scenery and sights.
And that’s where CoPilot Live comes into play!
Today we’re releasing our South Africa full-featured GPS navigation app for anyone lucky enough to be traveling to the tournament this summer. Available for iPhones, Android smartphones and Windows Mobile Phones, CoPilot Live South Africa can help fans find their way with confidence wherever they need to go—whether it’s to their hotel, to and from the airport or to the games. Thousands of useful Points of Interest (POIs) are pre-installed, including the locations of ATMs, hotels, restaurants, bars, car rental offices and airports. It will even provide directions to specific gates at tournament stadiums.
On the road, CoPilot Live’s advanced guidance features make it easy to see where to go, with 2D and 3D map views, Lane Assist display and a speed limit indicator.
No matter what the score is this summer, traveling fans are guaranteed to enjoy the journey.
The CoPilot Live South Africa GPS navigation app is available for $54.99 via the iPhone app store and for Windows Mobile from the CoPilot Live web store. It will be available via Android Market starting early next week.
