ALK Technologies has launched CoPilot Truck 11, full-featured GPS navigation and trip-planning software that runs on Windows-based laptop computers. It’s completely redesigned, says ALK, with step-by-step address entry plus 2D and 3D map views. Benefits are said to include reduced out-of-route, empty and deadhead miles; lower fuel costs;
better driver and dispatcher productivity; and more accurate pick-up and delivery times.

CoPilot Truck offers spoken PC*MILER directions. Truck-specific, spoken dock-to-dock directions are provided
throughout the U.S. and Canada. Routing options range from Practical, Shortest, 53 ft/102 in. Trailer, HazMat,
National Network, and Toll Avoidance, with 13 ft 6 in. height, 48-ft length, 80,000-lb weight, and 96-in. width

An easy-to-see screen with flexible and clear map views eliminates distraction while driving. CoPilot Truck will
find the best sequence for up to 50 stops. If a turn is missed, its route recalculation is automatic. As well as
truckstops, weigh stations and rest areas, CoPilot Truck includes 6 million infoUSA points of interest with phone

CoPilot Truck’s proprietary North American map database has been maintained by ALK for nearly 30 years. ALK’s street level and highway network database has grown to over 7 million miles of roadway nationwide, with over
460,000 miles of truck-restricted roads. The new CoPilot Truck includes over 800 updated counties across the U.S.
with over 200,000 miles of new roads. It also includes 140 million nationwide U.S. street addresses and 30 million
nationwide Canadian street addresses.

As an added premium service, fleets can take advantage of a connection to CoPilot Live FleetCenter which provides
multi-vehicle tracking and 2-way messaging plus fleet management, mobile dispatch, and historical reports.
