Reviews From google play store

Hoped this would be an alternative to Google Maps. It isn't. Sometimes route choices are baffling. Also, despite living in a big city (Toronto, Canada) it doesn't seem to recognize some major streets. Gardiner Expressway for example... major thoughoughfare through the city yet app draws a blank, often labesl it as the last street you happened to be on. CONFUSING. Often also fails to use street names in directions, just left or right. CONFUSING. Also PAID for the app but still get ads from Sygic.

Being happy with the free app version I bought the world full version, mainly for one time paid data traffic. Quite a mistake as long the developer started to add bugs with almost every update: - The bottom bar doesn't reflect the real traffic situation; - The blue highlighted path on the map hides the yellow/red one in case of traffic jam; - The app crashes variable a few times in 2-3 hours; - The downloaded maps (GB) disappears regularly; - No way for manually alternative routes. Trimmed.

Tried the free version. After finally getting the HUD working very nicely, on my BMW E38 I went back online to install the premium version as my 7 day test had expired. Price now up to around £28 instead of £14.!!! The new price includes lots of useless extras that may work on a modern car, butnot on mine.I gave up and bought a TomTom go app, which has everything I need bar head up mirror. For £14 annually, and it works! Sygic staff were always of help. Their site is down today.

Been a few years since I last used this app and my request then was that you could enter a UK postcode with the building number. It's still not available. It's important because on a long destination road, you may not know whether to turn right or left onto it to get to the correct building number. Anyway, TomTom had it and so it looks like I'll renew my subscription with them for at least another year.

I am very disappointed with Sygic GPS! Although I have paid for a lifetime licence for "Word maps and traffic" it doesn't work! Map search is very very poor and even when it finds the place it stops working in the middle of the way! It says "Positioning GPS...!" I kindly invite those of the maintenance: please try to fix these things or refund my money back! Meanwhile I have to remove it from my phone until it is fixed! Thanks for understanding.

I am very unhappy with this app! I cannot see live traffic information, when I use mobile data. Also very often the app switches off when I am driving and need the information, so does not sarve the very purpose it is meant to serve. I sent feedback about the problem several times but nothing wad resolved, so I use Google maps instead and would not recommend the app.

Can't impprt custom POIs in Germany (technically no reason) , and no ETA on when is this going to be fixed. No EV chargering points (which wouldn't have been an issue if the POI import worked) please allow for exporting of setting to SD card, not only to dropbox (assume your users downloaded your app for what you advertised it for ... OFFLINE usage). When on highway, twice it didn't alert me that i have to switch lanes, which ended in taking the wrong road. show stopper here

Sadly, I have given up with Sygic, i don't regret buying it, only wasted a few $$$$, there is no way that I am able to get it to work, it is so far inferior to Google maps and was a that it is hardly worth comparing, maybe it is my understanding of the app, I really don't know. How it can be successfully used by so many claimed users defies belief, I occasionally load it up, but in reality it is just taking up space on my phone, my wife refuses to even look at hers. I will leave it installed.

UPDATE 11/10/2019: (The reply from Sygic is older and has nothing to do with this review.) We own two devices and both have Sygic installed. While one was updated to version 18.4.2 which includes a customizable heads-up display, the other device is still stuck with the old version. No update can be found in the Google Play Store.

After the latest update the view in landscape position is awful! It is off centred and the 3D is not working. The zoom buttons are not visible. All this is because someone modified good interface just for the sake of " doing the regular improvement ", moving all the info posts to the left, keeping them huge and occupying half of the screen. Sygic Please! Make changes for better not as part of the " regular updates " Should have not updated!

The app work well for the map but the voice is so low I can't hear it, but the sound works fine with other apps like Google maps,Waze.(The problem was the voice I set, did reset to orignal 👌) also bought the HUD add on but it didn't say that it will show only simple info not the full map. This is useless, I missed my turns because It doesnt give you any references where you are compare to the map. I send an email and I got a refund withing the week, thank you for being very professional. 👍

Two major shortcomings I have had using this versus Google Maps is the lack of hiking trail info in Sygic and also that you need to zoom in too much before you can see park color shading and boundaries. My wife and I do a lot of travelling and hiking and sometimes we don't preplan a trip and just scout for options in a mapping app. Google Maps wins hands down for that task. On occasion Sygic voice tells me the upcoming railroad tracks are 1000 miles away when it should say 1000 feet.

Crashing quite often, on holiday had to reinstall, wouldn't start, not 100% reliable. More backup options should be added (googledrive) Update 16.11.19 They started charging for the functions that were free before. E.g. Map updates, HUD. I understand that they need to make money elsewhere but they changing my original subscription terms which is not nice.

The best app I've tried but it has it's flaws like cutting corners off sending you down minor roads and resetting the desired route without warning. There are rules you need to apply 1. Check the road signs. 2. Check accuracy of the destination, post codes and sat. nav can be very general leaving you in the wrong lane or what is walking across roads. 3. Common sense!

The maps that Sygic uses is superior to google maps. Structures and roads including parking lots are better animated. It found pretty much everything I was looking for during my travels. It did not seem to leverage my current location very well for searching. For example, when I searched for Costco, it showed the Costco at my home first. Also, it did not say street names, which I like when driving. It is a good program, but needs to offer more since there is cost, while Google is free.

What a load of bollocks. It does not navigate a direct "point to point " route (It navigates a round about way/longer route) It identifies major roads and even expressways/highways as "unable to find route " . Maybe it works better in some other parts of the world but defiantly does not work in my neck of the woods , South Australia

Sygic is a very good GPS app worldwide, but I think it falters in India regarding map update. I used it in trial mode and I have found lot of new roads are not seen in the map during driving which is a real disappointment. I stay in kolkata, and roads/junctions are missing in several places which are more than one year old..I have a plan to go to Bhutan by self driving, but with this experience , I am not very enthusiastic about purchasing this.

Nice App, Some optimizations need to be done. Arrows to show the traffic all the time not only when the road traffic Narrator need to say where the final destination is let or right this is a must The route calculation is not accurate as Google I hitting around the my destination 10 minutes until I changed to Google to show me the exact location When you start the route the arrow stays freezed until you go 15 secs away ... what happen if you don't know the area.. I bought the lifetime perk

When I zoom the map & shift the map angle, to let it stay pause so that I can drive seeing "myself" moving without seeing the road moving, it does stayed for awhile, then when the time frame is up it automatically move back without clicking the "resume button" PLEASE HELP FIX THIS PROBLEM ASAP, because we need the map zoom and stay there pausing.

Been using it for a couple of years overall it works great especially with traffic information. However the latest routing "improvements" broke ferries and will avoid them even if a route is 10 min. and 10KMs shorter on a 30 min drive. (It just does not show the option) Also there is no easy way just to avoid a road.

Stutters. Crashes on second use. Says no internet connection, which makes no sense since all other apps get a connection. Reinstall and exact same issue on second run. Of course hitting the back button will bring the app to an ad to try and get you to pay for upgrades. They need to spend more time making a reliable app and less trying to get the upsells working.

Extremely bad experience with the app. Wrong direction, doesn't give you street name, exit name or auto route, highway name. I should have tried before buying the application for 15.99 $. Wish I could get a complete refund. Finally I start using Google maps using data.

Used to be good but the route planning engine is screwy. It'll take you off a main road onto a minor road only to put you back on the main road you left 5 minutes ago, which would have been quicker, and this is despite being set on fastest route.

Not for Romania. I have really wanted to like this app because of the options but from where I currently am would propose me 10km routes to home instead of normal 3-4. 1:17h to home instead of the usual 15-20min. Same for the work, it gives me a 10km route due to traffic instead of a really good one, half that long. If I can't rely on it on known roads, I wouldn't use it in new places.

Points of interest or POI is what MOST people use navi for. Sygic has probably 1/10th of FREE competitors. Every app start you have to deal with upsells...and I am a premium user. The only advantage this app HAD over free software WAS offline maps so you didn't need to be using data. Most apps have that option now. I recommend the free apps.

Hi im from Singapore, bought the world+traffic premium for a road trip in Melbourne. I was trying out this app on singapore road for a few days and notice it keeps making me do the merry go round.. for example when i was at a traffic junction turning left, the navigation actually guided me to turn right, travel a long way then make a u-turn and pass the junction which i could just turned left to begin with. This happened so frequently that i am beginning to doubt if i can trust my holiday on it

Not good for Bulgaria,Indonesia,Greece not updated maps, tons of missing places compared with GMap is awful.Now in Greece it throw me 24 km from my destination away. Had to use GMaps again. Even free Waze is better with accurate maps. Doesn't show portable cams compared with Waze. Cameras alert sound stopped working after some updates ago all other sounds work well. When you depend on map provider, then change it because maps are inacurate.Why free software have new maps-you/we don't?

He's a good GPS, but he caught all the way off a trip and I was very upset about it. He kept saying getting position for 50km. I did all the procedures described on the site and hope it returns to normal. After all I have the premium license the minimum was to work properly...

The app itself is pretty nice, but changes paid license conditions from time to time, needing you to repurchase life-time membership once every couple of years. I'm not going to be upgrading this app anymore.

Good for Hong Kong ! Works offline very well. After few routes (premium) can't exit night mode. Please help !!! It''s very annoying, even when it's dark I prefer not to use it at all. Update didn't help.

It s working ok I just didn't like the addons called realview that I paid for it. It s not corect graphic is wrong and it will cause accidents. Psychic Better figure it out with new devices .I will check to see what is options for refund

installed app on Samsung Tablet, made inapp purchase. did not get activation code. tried activating using google login it did not work either. after few hours of frustration, uninstalled it and google took care of the refund. if activation fails a popup say send email to support. i did send email and got automatic reply that this address which was prompted by app popup is an internal email and i need to use FAQ. just for FYI, the support is zero but there is no zero star. so one star is more than it deserves

It's good in New Zealand but I would like to know how will you update the traffic zones. Here some 100 km zones have changed to 80/70 km zones and some 80/70 zones have changed to 50 km zones? What about new upcoming tracks if we purchase the app? So how will you update this? When does update happens?

Routing was wrong. Worse, when I went the correct way navigation kept wanting me to back track. Destination was on my current street, a mile ahead. No reason to back track. Support on another issue was non responsive.

Excellent app! But it seems to have some problems with the additional languages (for example, German). Would be great if you guys could check whefe the issue lies.

Cannot make it work on Xiaomi MIX 2S with latest OS version. App stuck at 0% map download. Cannot enter app interface. Rev: Situation solved. Maybe app cannot properly work if no sim card inserted. Now everything seems OK.

Not that good, does not find some places, and confusing on the highway sometime it takes longer to reponse, since last 3 times app crashes as soon as i search any address, did not like it, wasted my money to buy this app.

Need to be improving or updating map for Vietnam, the speed limit are obsoleted. There are many new roads still missing on map. All function of this app are working well, i love this.

Problems solve by the app developers. And I must say the app developers is extremely excellent, they replied me within 24 hours. Trillion thanks for their outstanding support and service. This is probably the best GPS navigation app on the earth surface.

In general its a good app but need alot of developpement as clairify the destination when there is multiple routes, and need to develop the Artificial intelligent to find the shortest route! Couldnt find this sometimes

just installed it other day and it insists on spamming me about a premium version, I go into settings -> notifications, but nope no way to turn off this annoying spammin. What a shame I didn't even get to try it. uninstall

As developer I can say pretty good work. It may have taken a hell lot of time and resources to build this app and yep it works very well , lag sometimes but little bit optimization in app will suffize. Kudos.

While use the mirror link, I cannot change the music by button of steering wheel. When I press the button, it focus sygic menu on the screen instead. I use s8+, ss carmode with honda accord

Routing through one ways on my way to work. Seems to be on an age old route. Not considering latest ground realities. Very disappointing for an app with paid licenses

Used this app as a delivery driver and it was the best app for me. Update, over a year later 10,000 trouble free miles and probably 50 miles of unfortunate mishaps but this app still gets me there without fuss. A+++ Love it.

Good but need timely updates.. using in india, (north+ern map) but found tht the maps are not fully updated, may b they r a year or long time updated, So requesting the team to take care .. otherwise good

Good app but a bit pricey, the only thing that's with the app is the navigation, all other features are individually priced, rather that one price pass

Flips from 3D to 2D for what seems like no reason. Then at some point flips back. On prior versions this did not happen. Disabling the auto zoom does nothing. Please fix.

Chose a UK map and it kept the speed to kilometers per hour. In general don't like the interface and nothing Google maps can't do.

Have several map updates, but speed limits still shows 60 mph on a14 from ransoms to kirton,this is in fact is 70mph stretch of road. Have reported before but this has not be taken on board by developers

There is an issue with the map, even though I choose for 3D map, it turned automatically to 2D if I'm driving. Please fix this, it's so annoying! One more thing: I loved in the past the option to choose by myself which information I have in the information bar, please bring it back! I paid for that option, but it changed for this one, ugly and useless. Bring it back and I'll give you 5 stars and considering to buy some more stuff from you!!! Otherwise just use Google maps 🥺

Works perfectly off line. Maps are good clear and very nice. Nice work guys.

Terrible. It can't find the address found in other maps even after downloading maps of states I would pass to get there.

no need for GPS when I have sygic offline maps. it's easier to use than Google though Google has a wider database

Sometimes crashes. Sometimes won't find pois that are clearly shown on maps.

Good interface but can you please update your maps especially for Malaysia since I detect a lot of outdated route on your maps.

Don't normally give 5 star but this is very good app for maps plus added on the dash cam . Brilliant.

Im impressed by the attention to detail&the add-on's are the best...I'v still got alot to explore on the app itself since i'v just registered&i'm quite excited.

So many Improvements over the last couple of years. Won't have to worry if my Tom Tom breaks down !!!

Concerning Israel map, I was surprised that the app directed me to drive into a 'dead end' street and also to drive in the opposite direction of the 'one way' part of that street. I tried it again, and the same mistake. I tried the same route in Google maps and it works OK. I wrote to Sygic twice and they never bothered to reply...... Eventually Sygic confirmed that the relevant map was sent to the map provider to be reviewed.

Maps are not updated for more than 2 months in compare to competitors. Waste of money

Garbage, ads even after you have paid for it, cant access map, cause of stupid sales ads

good but too expensive⚠️ this rating will be change upon changing the price ,,, Reply: there is no more details its all about how expensive is your app!!

Great UI graphic, bold and clear. Function is creatives and innovatives..

Best offline GPS for Android. Better to offer metric in miles/feet in addition to km. Heads up display is cool.

Poor route selection and crashes too often. In Cumbria it added 20 minutes to a trip by sending us over a very narrow and winding pass over a mountain. There was a good A Road going around it! If your destination is on the far side of the road it will take you 3 to 10 miles past it to turn around to then retrace your steps to find it. It will crash 2 or 3 times on a long journey, occasionally resetting itself but mostly just disappearing off the screen. This is dangerous.

This app calls a phone number 1000000 every time the voice navigation speaks. What gives?

Taken away camera Why take away the already in place dashcam to get people to pay for it. This app gets worse every update. If I hadn't have spent so much money on this already I would quite happily use a different mapping software. Fed up of developers ripping people off with their app with constant extra purchases after you've already paid for the thing anyway. Give something away free for a change. I have this and also the connected app and still want more money. What a joke.

I really like the app but it doesn't offer as much location services like other maps. I searched for an address using this app but it doesn't show up while I searched in other maps it does. Please make this app offer more location services as it's important to have as it's a navigation map and it will be awesome to just searched here rather than going for other maps everytime I searched for an address. Thank you.

This is the best gps iv found, but its maps are outdated and this is a critical necessity for a gps. But thanks to the costumer suport and attention on my feedback, i had to increase the rating. Also, besides my not soo good review, i will buy it very soon. Its worth every penny.

It is good but can't compete with Google map or other offline maps ( such as here we go). For example, one day after map update it gives wrong direction ( roundabout that was removed a year ago still showing up on the map). If I knew it I wouldn't purchased it.

First two addresses I searched for were no where to be found, very useful

Can you please add an option to turn off news and feats notications ? When I'm online, I'm always flooded by those.

Great app.It has the speed limit as well as your current speed.5 stars.

All in all, this app is wonderful. It's goes right up there next to my other favorite, TomTom.

Excellent navigation app. Very useful and reasonably priced extras ...

Best word-wide navigation program I have ever used. Highly recommended.

Google offline maps with sygic name on. Identical. Why pay when offline maps is free? Rippoff.

It's good but do not recognise 70% of the address by itself in Portugal.

The app needs to have more number of Dashcam recordings, only does 3 whereas should be 9.

New update ruined it again. The map doesn't re-route if i take an alternate route. It stays same even after i pass more than 500 mts from the projected route. Sygic team, you really need to work hard on automatic re-routing.

This is a very helpfull and amazing application.i am very satisfied from this app.

Unfortunately I was not able to try the app properly. It fails simple test: the route from Chalkida to Larissa draws via Athens. How can I trust the app now?

Great App for Navigation offline... Only one drawback that battery drainage

Fast traffic update s. Works great on Canada, U.S and Uk.

Great but a little expensive with all the add on's.

I love this app, but after an OS update Sygic constantly crashes in startup. I uninstalled and reinstalled still didnt help. Please help! You guys ROCK! It was Micro SD card causing the crashes. Thanks for your help in getting me back up.

Yes good and nice app. Everyone can help about on the way and street.etc.

This app is very good.I have been using it over a month now. Sygic takes you to the very place or places you wish to go. It also give you confidence even when it's offline, just as it says.

Very good app. Intuitive and dose what is advertised.

Very Good app without need internet. Working with satellite

It is a good map it shows you parking lots speed cameras and so on.

Again there are new maps but can't download over WiFi just stuck with spinning wheel

My sygic hang when i tick the search bar ..i try reinstall the app but problem still occur..

The current speed widget hide when switching between vertical and landscape orientation

The app itself is good, but the support should be faster. It took a few weeks until I received a normal answer, which is a pity because after that they could fix my problem in a few hours.

40 EUR just for Mirror Link to use on car screen. :( Back to Waze

I have been using this for a few days and I have found it to be accurate and quick. It is as good as Google and not as intrusive. There are quite a few addons you can purchase to make the experience even better. Recommended.

It's simple and easy to use it and it's very helpful for me. Thank you.
