In a press release CoPilot has announced a number of great features coming to their Windows Phone apps.
Their updated app will feature:
- CommuteMe: CommuteMe makes everyday driving quicker, easier and more predictable by intelligently learning a driver’s preferred route to and from work. It then automatically scans the route for traffic to avoid delays and provide an accurate estimated time of arrival. If a driver alters their preferred route, CommuteMe recognizes the change and proactively adapts.
- ActiveRoutes: Ever wonder which route is the fastest at a particular time of day? ActiveRoutes intelligently answers this question. It uses actual road speed data and the time of the day to accurately predict the fastest route – any time of day and day of the week.
- MirrorLink Connected Car Demo: CoPilot has long been ready for the connected car revolution and designed for safe, non-distracting in-car guidance. ALK will be demonstrating CoPilot running with MirrorLink at Mobile World Congress, in partnership with leading automotive solutions provider, HUML GmBh.
The company also announced that CoPilot will be coming to Windows Phone 8 tablets such as the Surface Pro.
The feature set rivals that of Nokia’s HERE Drive, and due to the much larger population of smartphone users using the service should have more accurate traffic information.
Will any of our readers be using this app over HERE Drive? Let us know below.
