Now available for both the Sony Ericsson M600i and P990 UIQ (pictured above) smartphones, CoPilot’s Live system is one of the finest pieces of guidance software cash can glean. We know – we’ve mucked about with it rather a lot of late.Turn-by-turn voice guidance is a given, but other features include real-time traffic alerts for T-Mobile customers and a speed-camera warning system, particularly useful as you touch 70, nailing down the Kings Road in flip-flops.Walk this wayThere’s a choice of driving or walking modes, tailoring directions to the speed at which you’re travelling.
