Supersize your GPS with CoPilot Live HD

With the iPad WiFi + 3G models set to arrive tomorrow (April 30th) in the US, ALK Technologies, makers of the popular CoPilot Live apps for the iPhone, have announced that CoPilot Live HD ($29.99) will be making its way to the iPad 3G in early May. Utilizing the gorgeous 9.7-inch screen, users will soon be able to receive turn-by-turn voice navigation along side a split screen showing both 3D or 2D maps en route to their destination (four dual view options are available). Much like the iPhone version, CoPilot Live HD will auto-switch between portrait and landscape, is equipped with pinch-zoom functionality and access to your iPod music is also possible.

The big question though is whether you really need a GPS with such a honking big screen. After all, you’re technically supposed to be following the voice prompts rather than keep your eyes glued to the device while driving. Regardless, I have to admit that it is pretty neat cruising round town with a mega-sized GPS, especially if you already have an iPad installed into your car. And if a custom install is way out of the question, it appears that iPad car mounts are already on sale. More info and pics after the gap.
