Übergizmo: CoPilot hopes to stumble upon a goldmine with a dedicated version of their satellite navigation software on the Apple iPad, where it will be known as the CoPilot Live HD. This version is a high resolution edition of the company’s iPhone CoPilot Live app, where it was specially designed to work on the iPad 3G.
All street maps will be stored on the device, where the app will make full use of the iPad 3G’s integrated GPS receiver. There is also an exclusive iPad function – a new split screen driving view that merges uncluttered 3D or 2D map displays with clear, non-distracting turn instructions. You will be able to switch between portrait and landscape automatically, while retaining the pinch-zoom functionality and access to iPod music controls from within the app just like on the iPhone. If you want to use the app with the iPad Wi-Fi version, then you will need to fork out more dough for a separate GPS dongle such as the Posimotion G-Fi.
