ALK Technologies Launches New CoPilot Caravan App

Press Release: March 30, 2016

London, UK – March 23, 2016 – ALK Technologies, a Trimble Company and global leader in GeoLogistics® and navigation software, today announced CoPilot® Caravan™, an offline navigation app for drivers of motorhomes, caravans and large Recreational Vehicles (RVs).

“We’ve taken a great deal of care to create a CoPilot sat nav app designed specifically for the unique navigation needs of caravan and motorhome drivers.” said David Quin, VP consumer applications at ALK Technologies. “CoPilot Caravan is a powerful and affordable tool to navigate your motorhome or caravan confidently throughout Europe, leaving users free to enjoy the drive without worrying about travelling on a restricted road or losing guidance in areas with spotty data coverage.”

The new app for smartphones and tablets enables users to take the strain out of driving a caravan or motorhome by automatically generating customised routes based on vehicle size and class (height, weight and length).
Drivers can hit the road with confidence, knowing that CoPilot Caravan provides them with:

• Route planning that avoids narrow local roads and prevents dangerous or costly run-ins with low bridges and other restricted roads
• Clear, easy-to-follow directions designed to reduce driver distraction
• On-screen alerts to provide early warning about potential hazards for larger vehicles such as lateral winds, steep inclines and sharp bends
• Easy access to millions of useful pre-installed locations like camping sites, motorway services and petrol stations
• Multi-stop itinerary builder with the ability to add up to 50 stops across the continent, saving save time and fuel costs
• Voice-guided turn instructions, automatic route recalculation, advanced lane guidance at motorway exits and junctions plus speed limit warnings when posted speed is exceeded and safety camera warnings
• 12 months of real-time traffic service is also included, to help drivers avoid unexpected delays on route
• Free map updates of Europe

CoPilot Caravan’s detailed and comprehensive street maps of Europe are downloaded directly to a smartphone or tablet for offline use, eliminating the need for a mobile data network connection in remote areas or incurring roaming fees when navigating abroad.

CoPilot Caravan is available now through Google Play and coming soon to the iTunes AppStore for a one-time introductory price of £42.99 (offer until 11th of April 2016, regular price £49.99).
