to purchase from the Amazon Appstore for Android


Princeton, NJ – April 14, 2011 –
 ALK Technologies today announced their CoPilot Live voice-guided, GPS navigation app for Android-powered smartphones and tablets has launched on the Amazon Android Appstore, debuting at #1 in the paid navigation category.

"The launch of CoPilot Live on the Amazon Appstore is great news for consumers," said Michael Kornhauser, Managing Director, CoPilot Solutions, ALK Technologies. "Amazon.com is the largest online retailer in the United States and the preferred channel to purchase and research computer software and electronics for many consumers. We're thrilled with the interest they've taken in the Android app marketplace and seeing CoPilot Live debut at #1 further demonstrates the appetite for on-board navigation among smartphone and tablet users."

Already a popular choice on Google's Android Market, CoPilot Live North America provides easy to follow, turn-by-turn navigation with clear 3D guidance views and voice directions throughout the U.S and Canada. Detailed street-level maps are stored directly on the Android device, not downloaded each trip, so drivers don't need to rely on a mobile internet connection for navigation.

In addition to door-to-door navigation, CoPilot Live North America uses a phone's mobile internet connection to provide access to useful real-time information including Local Internet Search and location-specific weather forecasts. A real-time traffic service, ActiveTraffic™, calculates routes and ETAs based on current traffic conditions and is available to purchase as a premium feature.

CoPilot Live North America is immediately available to purchase from the Appstore for Android for a one-time fee of $19.99 for unlimited use. Twelve months use of the ActiveTraffic real-time traffic service is available as an option for $9.99. Learn more at www.copilotlive.com or view the feature video.
