INRIX, and ALK Technologies, have announced that INRIX will power real-time traffic data in ALK Technologies popular CoPilot Live v8 GPS navigation app for Apple iPhone, Google Android and Windows phones in North America.

"Consumer feedback continuously shows that reliable real-time traffic information is the most requested feature in navigation systems," said Michael Kornhauser, Managing Director, ALK Technologies. "By leveraging INRIX's real-time traffic information on CoPilot Live, our customers can better plan their trips knowing they can rely on the broadest and most accurate traffic data available."

With the world's largest crowdsourced traffic network and innovative data fusion technology, INRIX helps consumers avoid traffic congestion, reduce drive times and save gas by providing real-time updates on traffic conditions in their area. INRIX intelligently blends billions of real-time data points from over 1.3 million GPS-enabled commercial and consumer devices and traditional road sensors, providing the broadest, most accurate and reliable real-time traffic information for more than 160,000 miles of freeways, highways and interstates across North America.

"Traffic congestion costs every American about $750 each year in fuel and lost productivity which translates to nearly three weeks' worth of gas purchases and one work week of time wasted," said Kush Parikh, vice president of business development at INRIX. "ALK's CoPilot Live mobile navigation app coupled with INRIX's real-time traffic helps drivers save time, gas and money on their daily commutes."

ALK's CoPilot Live v8 transforms mobile phones into full featured satellite navigation devices. The software provides all the benefits, features and quality mapping of a dedicated navigation system but conveniently on consumers' choice of smartphone. Unlike many mobile navigation systems, CoPilot's maps are stored on the phone, so there's no need to rely on the mobile internet to download maps. CoPilot Live v8's new traffic service offers high quality, constantly-updated traffic information presented in easy to read displays including alerts to accidents and incidents that commonly cause traffic congestion.

Common complaint about this particular iPhone nav app is that the map coverage is not very good, eg., long existing streets can't be found on the map. No personal experience with that aspect of it. What I am really curious about is if the app actually does something with the traffic information besides display it on the map. Does the routing account for the traffic and route you around it automatically, or do you have to make a decision based on displayed traffic and hit some kind of detour button to avoid the traffic?
