Pocket CoPilot wins CES 2001 Innovations Award


TravRoute’s Pocket CoPilot has won a 2001 Innovations Award from the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the fourth time in four years TravRoute has received this distinguished award.

Pocket CoPilot provides all the power of a laptop-based GPS navigation system on the new, conveniently portable Pocket PC mobile devices. Features include a rotating map function that corresponds with the direction of your vehicle, real-time mileage countdown to your next turn and to your destination, complete street-level map coverage of the entire continental U.S., and nationwide points of interest. And Pocket CoPilot comes complete with a pinpoint accurate GPS receiver measuring less than 3 inches in diameter.

“Pocket CoPilot is the only product of its kind. We’ve taken the power and accuracy of our route guidance and combined it with the convenience and portability of a Pocket PC device,” says Troy Ewanchyna, Vice President of Marketing. “The Innovations award reiterates what an invaluable mobile productivity tool Pocket CoPilot can be.”

To use Pocket CoPilot, simply install the TravRoute-provided Pocket CoPilot software on your desktop or laptop computer, transfer the map data by region to the Pocket PC device, and go. Pocket CoPilot guides users to their destination and even calculates a new route in seconds if you happen to go off course.

The Innovations 2001 award program is being held in conjunction with the 2001 International CES, January 6-9, 2001.
