- La pluripremiata app di navigazione ritorna sulle piattaforme Microsoft

BARCELLONA, Spagna, 24 febbraio 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ALK Technologies, leader nello sviluppo di applicazioni per la navigazione satellitare mobile, annuncia la disponibilità di CoPilot®, la applicazione di navigazione GPS, per Windows Phone 8 e Windows 8.

CoPilot porta così la navigazione satellitare a guida vocale sulle piattaforme Microsoft. Progettata per rappresentare un'alternativa ai tradizionali sistemi integrati in auto, la app fornisce una gamma di funzionalità avanzate quali gli indicatori di corsia e il sistema ClearTurn™ per la visualizzazioni degli incroci, la pianificazione completa del percorso e le mappe stradali consultabili anche in modalità offline. Prevede, inoltre, servizi 'Live' in tempo reale che includono ActiveTraffic™, Yelp, Wikipedia e Google Search.

"Siamo sempre stati grandi sostenitori delle soluzioni mobile di Microsoft", afferma David Quin, Head of Consumer Applications, ALK Technologies. "CoPilot fu sviluppato proprio per il Pocket PC di Microsoft e ha aperto la strada alla navigazione mobile con Windows Mobile, siamo pertanto  orgogliosi di annunciare una nuova app progettata per Windows Phone 8 e Windows 8. La gamma di dispositivi mobili basati su Windows si sta rapidamente affermando come un'alternativa ai sistemi Android e iOS e ci fornisce la piattaforma ideale per offrire un'esperienza di navigazione ricca di ogni optional e in linea con le esigenze dei guidatori."

"Windows Phone è supportato da un vivace ecosistema di applicazioni che include una grande varietà di prodotti di qualità, come CoPilot, il quale permette di rendere lo smartphone un dispositivo utile e personalizzato", prosegue Todd Brix, General Manager Windows Phone Apps, Microsoft Corp. "CoPilot è un esempio valido delle vasta scelta di app disponibili su Windows Phone Store per beneficiare al massimo del proprio smartphone".

  • Mappe 3D chiare e leggibili, con indicatori di corsia e visualizzazione dei segnali stradali
