ALK Technologies will finally launch the latest release of its CoPilot Live satellite navigation software across Europe this month. Version 7.0 will arrive - coincidentally - seven months after it was originally promised.

CoPilot Live 7: testing caused some 'delays'

ALK originally planned to release version seven at the end of March, but told Register Hardware that language support had been a “big challenge” and that more “extensive user testing” had been required too. However, ALK still sees Live 7 as a “direct replacement to the likes of TomTom”.

CoPilot Live 7 is designed for Windows Mobile-based devices and now allows users to share their custom map styles, voices, routes and points of interest with others, via the CoPilot website. ALK also claims the software’s 2D and 3D maps have been given a style overhaul.

Additional updates include better transport-specific navigation modes. So if you’re using it as a pedestrian it won’t bother shouting out vehicle restrictions. For motorists, London Congestion Charge information is included too.

CoPilot Live 7 will be available across Europe from 22 October through O2, Carphone Warehouse and T-Mobile. A standard DVD software copy with a 1GB memory card preloaded with UK and Ireland maps costs £80/€120 ($160).
