While Yahoo and Google’s local search have been tapped for satnav tools to date, this is the first I’ve heard of a company tapping into Microsoft’s offering. The company’s offering is called CoPilot.

Future versions of the system promise the ability to tap into live online reservation systems, thereby helping users make an informed selection.

ALK said that, unlike many mobile-based GPS systems, CoPilot maps are stored on the device so data transfer is limited and access is faster and more reliable.

The new system will be provided as a free download to all existing CoPilot users in the coming months.
