Windows Live Search comes to CoPilot
ALK Technologies has announced that their CoPilot Live mobile phone navigation system will soon include Windows Live Search
With the inclusion of Live Search, users will be able to type the name of a place or a brand name, and CoPilot 7 will display a list of the closest matches to your current location. Using the phone's mobile internet connectivity, all results can be previewed and then added to your route.
Windows Live Search will also provide community-generated reviews and rankings, so you can make an informed decision on where to go. Click on a result and the telephone number for that location will automatically be displayed with the option of calling that number immediately.
Microsoft's Windows Live Search will start being fully integrated and shipped on all Windows Mobile devices that feature CoPilot Live 7 from April, while existing customers will be able to download a free upgrade
