Anyone else having issues with the Sygic freezing on a Nexus 7 occasionally? Or of the GPS on a Nexus occasionally locking up?
Old Nexus 7 or 2013 model? Because the 2013 model had a GPS bug.
I don't use Sygic, so I cannot comment on that software. I do run both TomTom Android and CoPilot Android on the Nexus 7 and have had no problems with "locking up".
NOTE: This is with the original (2012) Nexus 7. I have no experience with the 2013 version.

Haven't tried TomTom or Copilot. do they both incorporate local map databases without the need for a network connection? It is the original Nexus 7.
I just tried Sygic on a new Lenovo tablet. I was unimpressed. What disappointed me wasn't specific to my model tablet.
At first look the program seemed really nice. It has several features that are missing from my low end Nuvi 250. But I soon saw that the built-in POIs were quite poor. Even though I just downloaded it and the maps this month, there were stores in the POIs that had been closed five or six years ago. There were plenty of red light cameras in my area that were removed a year ago, and at least one where there was never a camera at that location at all (but, curiously, it was incorrectly listed in the red light camera file here five years ago, but removed after I reported it to Miss POI). But the worst issue was when I tried to use it to route me to a friend's house. The first half of the route was just as I normally go. But then it started suggesting turns that were going to take me further from my destination. I went ahead and took my route, but the program kept trying to get me to make u-turns. I figured it would soon decide that my route was good, but it never did. Even when I turned onto the street that my friend's house was on and I could see the checkered flag that marked my destination, it was still trying to convince me to make a u-turn and go back and do the route it's way.
I'll keep shopping and find an alternative program that doesn't want to overcharge me for out dated information and poor routing.
Yes, that is correct. At least in the US, you download a map for the entire country and need no network connection from then on for normal navigation with either program.
With TomTom, in some areas you can download maps that cover several countries - such as all of Western Europe. I have never checked if CoPilot has similar capabilities, but I suspect that it can do so.
