Smartphone-based navigation app will help drivers find the best way in London by avoiding or favouring temporary road restrictions
14th March 2012, London: ALK Technologies, leading provider of mobile navigation software, today announced new features for its popular CoPilot Live sat nav app for smartphones and tablets, which will help drivers to keep moving around central London this summer, bearing in mind temporary road restrictions.
With these features, CoPilot Live will alert drivers if their route involves restricted roads as they occur, and offer an alternative route if available. Drivers can also choose to completely avoid affected roads altogether, while those drivers eligible to use restricted roads can choose to take these routes automatically.
In addition, CoPilot Live’s optional ActiveTraffic™ service will continuously monitor real-time road speeds and recommend the fastest route to the destination accordingly.
“It has been widely speculated that traffic in London may be disrupted this summer.” said David Quin, Head of Consumer Applications at ALK Technologies. “We hope this won’t be the case, but drivers equipped with CoPilot Live on their smartphone or tablet will have all they need at their fingertips to keep moving – whether that is avoiding delays or rerouting if necessary.”
Temporary road restriction avoidance will be introduced to ALK’s CoPilot Live Premium UK & Ireland and CoPilot Live Premium Europe apps for iPhone, iPad and Android via a free app update in early summer 2012.
CoPilot Live Premium UK + Ireland costs £24.99 for lifetime use navigation
CoPilot Live Premium Europe costs from £37.99
CoPilot Live’s optional ActiveTraffic services costs from £9.99 for 12 months
