PRINCETON, N.J., Oct 15 /PRNewswire/ -- ( -- ALK Technologies, today, announced CoPilot Live USA bringing full-featured, voice-guided GPS navigation to Android smartphones and tablet devices for the breakthrough price of just $4.99.

Already a popular choice for iPhone and iPad owners, CoPilot Live USA for Android provides easy to follow, powerful turn-by-turn guidance with clear 3D guidance views and voice directions throughout the USA.

The app includes 14 days use of CoPilot Live's advanced real-time traffic information service, ActiveTraffic™, which calculates routes and ETAs based on current traffic conditions.
