ALK Technologies announced the release of CoPilot Live Truck for iPhone, the first voice-guided GPS navigation app designed specifically for professional truck drivers. Available immediately to download from the iTunes App Store, the app makes truck-specific GPS navigation more portable and more affordable than dedicated navigation devices.

CoPilot Live Truck provides safe and reliable routes on truck-legal roads throughout North America. Based on driver and vehicle profiles, CoPilot Live Truck automatically calculates routes taking into account vehicle size, weight, width, and load type to avoid commercial truck restrictions. Truck-specific capabilities include:

  • Avoids low bridge clearances and weight/height/width-restricted roads

  • Avoids hazmat or flammable materials-restricted roads as appropriate

  • Commercial truck routing options include Practical, Shortest, 53'/102" Trailer or Twins, National Network, and Toll Avoidance

  • Ability to create custom trip, vehicle and driver profiles

  • Truck-specific POIs including weigh stations, CAT scales, rest areas, truckstops, and truck service facilities

  • Generate state mileage logs to provide an accurate record for billing and tax calculation
