In my last blog post, I talked about some of the 3rd Party Windows Mobile Applications that could enable you to run your business from the pub to be more productive.
As promised, in this post I'll talk about some of the applications I use to work remotely and to get myself from A to B.
Top of that list of applications is... CoPilot Live. When I first moved from a PDA to a Windows Mobile Phone, I was dismayed to find that my favourite Satellite Navigation software, TomTom, did not work on my T-Mobile MDA Vario II. I had tried other Sat-Nav software in the past and never found anything to match TomTom in terms of ease of use and features.
Then I tried CoPilot Live and changed my allegiances instantly! With Postcode Searching, a Walk/Cycle/Drive navigation feature (handy for when you are strolling/riding around a City Centre), good POI's (Points of Interest) and all the other features Read more [...]

Much more to come on the Vario and T-Mobiles 3G service soon, but I thought I'd bring two competing applications to your attention.
Google Maps for Mobiles (shown on the right) and Microsoft's Live Search for Mobiles (browse to both URL's directly from your mobile device for instant download and install) both perform similar functions.
