It was only last week that we got the news that TomTom was available for Android devices - well, some of them. TomTom was incompatible with many of high-profile handsets such as the Samsung Galaxy S3 and HTC One X, which excluded them from a large portion of the market.
In what's probably more than a coincidence, ALK Technologies has today announced that its CoPilot Live offline GPS navigation apps are now compatible with over 250 Google-certified Android phones and tablets. The company even hand picks some devices that don't play nice with TomTom for mention in today's presser --
So despite Google Maps navigation being bundled on all Google-certified handsets, it seems the GPS navigation market is still alive and well on the platform. We've got the rest of today's announcement after the break.
The latest version of the CoPilot Live Premium apps (version 9.3) supports Android OS versions from as far back as Froyo to the most recent version, Jellybean. This means that CoPilot’s full-featured voice guided navigation and mapping is available for Android veterans such as T Mobile G2 and HTC Desire, as well as the hottest new devices like HTC’s ONE X, Samsung’s Galaxy Note 2, Galaxy SIII and Google’s Nexus 7.
CoPilot navigation is available in two versions from Google Play:
- CoPilot Live Premium: a paid app which offers full-featured voice-guided GPS navigation with advanced 3D map views and live traffic as standard.
- CoPilot GPS: a free app which includes powerful trip planning and offline maps. Turn by turn navigation is available via in-app purchase.
