3GSM 2006: CoPilot brings sat nav to Symbian mobiles

Mobile phones

ALK used the 3GSM to announce that CoPilot® Live is now available for Symbian Series 60 phones. The first model to benefit will be the Nokia N70.

CoPilot® Live 6 turns a Symbian Series 60 phone into an easy-to-use satellite navigation system complete with door-to-door route calculation, turn-by-turn voice instructions and detailed street maps. Enter your destination by house number, street, town, point of interest or even a full UK post code, then select ‘start driving’ for your route. Advanced features include a choice of map views, planning mode to calculate trips in advance and a walking mode for finding the way on foot using your mobile. Live traffic information and over-the-air downloads of camera locations are available as an added subscription.

CoPilot® Live 6 Symbian will initially be available with the Nokia N70 through T-Mobile in the UK. The complete package is available from free when purchased with a monthly contract.
