ALK readies stylish iPad satnav app

At last, maps big enough to read

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

ALK appears to be first out of the door with a UK-friendly satnav app for Apple's iPad.

Well, kind of - CoPilot Live HD has been submitted to Apple for approval but hasn't yet had the magical firm's blessing.

When it does, the app will provide turn-by-turn navigation to the 3G-enabled iPad, which has a built-in GPS pick-up, a feature absent from the Wi-Fi only model.

The 3G link also provides access to online traffic data and local searches.

CoPilot Live HD will cost £26 for unlimited use of one European map region, ALK said, with no ongoing fees or subscriptions. Buyers will be able to upgrade to maps of the whole of Europe for £38 from within the app. ®
