Tried it, uninstalled it

I tried the free trial version on my tablet. Really liked the look and feel of the UI. Seemed like it would be a great app, well worth buying. But I tried letting it route me to a friend's house. First half of the route went well. But then it started trying to route me in some strange directions and on roads that I didn't want to take. I went the way that I normally go, expecting it to do something like Garmin's "recalculating" and get with the new route. But it kept insisting that I should make U-turns and go back and do things it's way. Even when I was on my friend's street and in sight of his house, the program wanted me to go back and do things it's way. So between bad routing and bad behavior if I didn't go the way it wanted, I decided that this wasn't the program for me.

Reroute

Free trail does not reroute automatically

Locks Up

I find it locks up and freezes every so often so I prefer to stick with the dedicated nav units.

tried it.

I used the trial version on my s5. Did not think it was worth the full price, so after trial i deleted it. It does allow you to store maps on phone to cut data usage.

I never get lost, but I do explore new territory every now and then.

Sygic won't recalculate route

Yesterday I was testing Sygic ver15 on a 50 mile route all seemed well until I went off route about 200 yds. to get coffee I returned to my route by an exit that took me directly back to my planned route but I did not travel over a portion of about 100yds. between the entrance and the exit. Sygic kept insisting that I make a UTURN to go back and travel the tiny portion I missed. Can Sygic be set to just recalculate the route and carry on ?

Thank you one and all!!!

You've certainly convinced me this app isn't ready for prime time yet! It sounds like the trial version is limited in its capability.

I know if I were writing an app like this and trying to break into a market competing with folks like Google and others, I would encourage you to test a fully functional app for a limited period of time.

Oh well.. Anyone know how long this app has been around?

Never argue with a pig. It makes you look foolish and it anoys the hell out of the pig!

I see the first topic here

I see the first topic here about Sygic is from Feb of 2014. Looks like after a year they would have gotten the bugs out of it.

Tested the Paid Version

Well, not bad for the price ($40 for the whole world). I used to have Navigon on Android but switched to iPhone and took up Sygic for cost reasons. A bit better UI and easier to get around the screen while driving but crashed on me once when I arrived to my destination. Might be just low battery, I will check that further. Same as Navigon it allows downloading only maps (states) you need. However, Canada is in one big file instead broken up into provinces as Navigon does it. However, it does the automatic route recalculation quite nicely. I uploaded the free red light cams from poiplaza and it warns me on the arrival nicely. It also warns you on some major intersections, RR Xing etc. Got to say - not bad.

Hello all, Sorry, I am

Hello all,
Sorry, I am reviving this old thread. I downloaded and purchased IOS version on my phone about couple of months ago. It has nice interface, maps look nice etc. but I am not happy with its routing at all. It is still not willing to re-route you if you deviate from its route. It continues to ask you to make a U-Turn to come back to original route. I even bought their monthly map updates but they are not up to date either. I have a major street near my place which is under construction for over a year but these maps still not showing construction on this street. I use it sometime in our new vehicle in Apple Car Play mode but I cannot depend on its routing.

Any Product that needs A

Any Product that needs A Connection to route......

Does you no good if you get out of cellphone range....

All you need to do is get lost once, with no Cellphone Coverage... and you'll run back to your Garmin, which only needs access to the sky to tell you where you are.......

A 2689LMT in both our cars that we love... and a Nuvi 660 with Lifetime Maps that we have had literally forever.... And a 2011 Ford Escape with Nav System that is totally ignored!

Yes, you are right. I always

Yes, you are right. I always use one of my three Garmins when I am travelling for reliability.

I have tried Sygic, but did not like its routing as well!

I use Android Navigon (which was bought by Garmin and then shut it down). Navigon is still functional, but there has been no NA map update since Jan '20.

I have also tried out TomTom GO, which I may move to whenever Navigon becomes unusable.
