Princeton, NJ – January 17, 2011 – ALK Technologies Inc. today announced the release of CoPilot Live Truck for Android phones, the first voice-guided GPS navigation app designed specifically for professional drivers of trucks and other large commercial vehicles.
Unlike consumer navigation apps, CoPilot Live Truck provides safe and reliable routes on truck-legal roads throughout North America. It automatically calculates routes based on vehicle size, weight, width and load type to avoid commercial truck restrictions.
- Avoids low bridge heights and clearances and weight/height/width-restricted roads
- Avoids Hazmat or flammable materials-restricted roads as appropriate
- Efficient routing options include Practical, Shortest, 53’/102” Trailer or Twins, National Network and Toll Avoidance
- Ability to create custom route profiles for easy switching between vehicles
- Generate state mileage logs to provide an accurate record for billing and tax calculation
Based on the award-winning CoPilot Live GPS navigation apps, it features multi-stop routing and route optimization enhanced with industry standardPC*MILER truck-specific attributes. Complete street-level maps of North America are stored directly on the iPhone, not downloaded each trip, so there is no need to rely on a mobile internet connection for navigation.
Millions of useful Points of Interest for professional drivers are pre-installed, including truck services, truck stops, rest areas and weigh stations and CAT Scales.
CoPilot Live Truck USA & CAN is available to purchase from the Android Market immediately for a one-time cost of $149.99. A list of compatible Android devices can be found at: www.copilotlive.com
