AA rolls out pricey own-brand satnav app
The unbranded version is cheaper
The AA has launched its own satnav app.
Well, sort of. The £27 download actually appears to be ALK CoPilot Live with a yellow skin.

The savvy buyer will opt for CoPilot - it's only £20. Or you could go for the AA's Route Planner app, which lacks guidance but will work out how to get from A to B. It costs £1.79.
Canny punters will use Google Maps for route planning, because it comes with the iPhone and is free.
The AA satnav app, which covers the UK and Ireland, has all the customary functionality, including seven-digit postcode searching, lane indication, speed camera warnings and thousands upon thousands of Points of Interest.
It's available now. ®
