CoPilot Live

Want GPS on your iPod touch? WiFi only iPad or iPad mini? Newton? You’re out of luck with the latter, but a CoPilot Live app /  Bad Elf receiver combo can turn the Wi-Fi only iPad, iPad mini, or iPod touch into a fully powered, voice guided turn-by-turn navigation unit, and CoPilot Live will be showing it off at Macworld/iWorld 2013.

You see, even if you add a GPS receiver to most Wi-Fi only devices, many navigation apps (including Google Maps and Apple Maps) rely on a mobile data connection, making them inoperable on Wi-Fi only devices. But…

The CoPilot Live GPS app works on a Wi-Fi only device because it stores all maps and POIs on the device. After an initial download, there is never any need to connect to a mobile network for navigation. With a Bad Elf receiver providing the GPS connection, any Wi-Fi only device is now equipped to guide you anywhere you want to go, regardless of network connectivity.

To learn more about how to get CoPilot Live running on your Wi-Fi only iDevice, stop by Booth 718 at Macworld/iWorld at the Moscone Center in San Francisco from January 31st through February 2nd.
