Good news for those lacking direction now in the form of the latest announcement from satnav app par excellence CoPilot Live: 12 months free access to real-time traffic information will now be included as a standard feature in their Premium products, taking the misery out of motoring.
An industry first for a fully featured satnav app, the time/patience-saving ActiveTraffic was previously subject to an additional £9.99 subs charge, but now all CoPilot Live Premium users can allow their Android device to do all the navigational legwork for them, calculating the fastest routes from A to B, helping you to avoid the hideous snarl up at C and steer completely clear of the otherwise inevitable sweary near-road-rage incident at D.
Automatically monitoring the road ahead for any delays and providing drivers with accurate ETAs based on realistic road conditions and not those imagined by people who’ve never even been to the UK let alone driven in it, it’s fair to say that you’ll never have had a shotgun quite so good.
“Real-time traffic information is becoming an essential way for drivers to reduce the delays and extra fuel costs caused by traffic congestion,” said David Quin, Head of Consumer Applications at ALK Technologies. “We are delighted to make ActiveTraffic a standard feature for our CoPilot Live Premium customers: it is useful every day for any journey – whether on your commute, school run or a weekend getaway.”
CoPilot Live Premium with free ActiveTraffic is available now for download from Google Play, whilst existing customers can download a free update and customers who have already subscribed will be given an additional 12 months on top of their current subscription.
All that without demanding constant toilet breaks or eating all the travel sweets – CoPilot Live Premium could well become the best travelling companion you’ve ever had.
