Drivewyze, ALK combine mapping and bypass tech for app

| August 15, 2014

CopilotDrivewyze and ALK Technologies announced this week a collaboration in which the two will integrate functions of their apps to work together. 

ALK provides GPS navigation functionality, and Drivewyze provides its PreClear service — the mobile-based weigh station bypass service.

ALK’s app is the CoPilot Truck app ($150) and offers voice-guided, truck-specific GPs navigation.

Drivewyze’s app (free) uses cellular networks to add transponder-like functionality to mobile devices. The bypass service starts at $15.75 a month per vehicle. Free trial offers are available, though, based on volume.

The partnership will allow the apps to work in tandem, the companies said. 

Both apps are available in the iOS App Store and Android’s Google Play.
