We have not heard a lot from the guys at ALK since the Gumball Rally earlier this year. So it was nice to receive a call from the CoPilot Marketing Director to see if we could have a meeting... In eager anticipation of new exciting software I made my way to the ALK London office on a cold and wet wednesday morning. Unfortunately the meeting was not to discuss CoPilot Live 7 (honest, nothing was mentioning about any new software).

What I was shown though was a plethora of new bundles of CoPilot 6 and CoPilot Live 6 on a variety of hardware platforms. These ranged from mobile phones through connected PDAs to PNDs. In a move similar to that started by Intel, and copied by a number of others since, we are starting to see a number of boxes with "CoPilot Inside" appearing in a number of outlets.

Possibly the most significant of these are the bundles released by mobile phone operators. These offer subsidised hardware, pre-installed navigation software in a totally connected environment. T-Mobile are starting to offer a fixed price tariff for "all you can eat" GPRS called "Web 'n' Walk" capped at 1.00 a day for pay as you go tariffs for 7.50 on top of your selected talk plan. Unfortunately this does not extend to European roaming, but at least it is a start at freeing up one of the inhibitors to a connected lifestyle.

Have just signed up with T-mobile using their latest Mda Vario II with Copilot.
It really is a good piece of Kit even though you have to use the Bluetooth GPS receiver. My only criticism is that it has some interesting routing options when trying to get through the Fens to my home.
The kit is so simple to use and the ability to take calls whilst the navigation part is in use is invaluable. Once the call has been made then the screen returns to navigation without any problems. The tracking function is well used when out on the road and very user friendly. The only problem i had with the tracker was my own impatience when sending the tracking invitation. This is the second MDA vario II bundle, the first had a comms problem however the staff at T-Mobile in Kings Lynn exchanged the unit with no problems.
