Earlier this week we reviewed the CoPilot Live Premium GPS Navigation app. Now CoPilot have released a free GPS app as well.
CoPilot GPS is an all-new offline route planning and local exploring app that gets you everywhere you need to go without relying on your mobile data connection. Detailed maps of an entire country or region are stored on your smartphone or tablet, so you’ll be able to calculate routes and get driving or walking instructions even when there’s no mobile coverage. Millions of Points of Interest (POIs) are built into the app, making it easy to locate nearby restaurants, shops, hotels and more. You can also search for local businesses and attractions using Bing and Wikipedia.
This app is free, compared to the paid app they also have available.
CoPilot GPS does not include full voice-guided turn by turn navigation or 3D maps – you can upgrade through in-app purchase or simply buy one of the CoPilot Live Premium apps.
Here’s the full list of features available in the app:
- – Premium quality 2D street maps stored on-board your device for offline use
- – Millions of Points of Interest (POIs) built in with in-app dialing
- – Powerful route planning with a multi-stop trip optimizer
- – Alternate Routes: CoPilot GPS will provide up to 3 ways to your destination
- – Drag and drop to adjust your route or destination
- – Driving directions: Manually preview through the turns to your destination
- – Walking mode: Explore unfamiliar cities on foot with ease
- – Universal app: the iPhone version runs on iPad too!
- – Social sharing: Share your location with friends on Twitter & Facebook
I have been known to use Google Maps when I am out and looking for a specific address and getting easy directions, so I will be very interested in trying this one out!
If you try it out, let us know what you think of it!
