All licenses gone
by BlueBuell on 2022/01/16 13:16
Upgraded my phone, none of my premium lifetime licenses transferred across. I’d purchase most everything they sell. Contacted customer support, they asked me to send receipts for my purchase, which I did. They then told me how to restore them, followed their instructions - did not restore licenses, so they stopped responding to me after I told them it didn’t work and have not restored anything. So I have nothing I paid for and even though I have proved purchases they have not done anything to remedy the situation. Seriously disappointed. Beware with upgrading, Sygic’s commitment to its customers is paper thin.

Not working, no support, no license
by Ohytos on 2022/01/13 15:08
Lifetime license that I purchased before is not valid anymore despite Sygic saying otherwise, of course everything is subscription now. Urgent support means 3-5 days for them. But anyway they don’t respond for 2-3 weeks. Guidance was usually good, but often sometimes directs you through some back streets that doesn’t make the route faster
Everyone should have this app

I have had Sygic maps with the world for years now. It’s a great offline world map for when you don’t have cell data. That said lately they keep sending me notifications to upgrade to premium+. Not interested so stop nagging me.
Application still showing “Districts” not “Cities”
by itsmedarian on 2022/01/07 23:46
Typing an address or category search presents the location results as part of a district instead of showing the city that a location is in. Here in virtually all United Ststes locations, it is the city that is used and not a district. This impacts the ability for a user to know what city a location is located in. I have reached out to Sygic Support and was promised this was going to be resolved in a future update however months later the error still persists. I like the application but really disappointed in how they are handing this support issue. I’ve been a supporter and paid user of Sygic but perhaps it may be time to look elsewhere.

I purchased this app about 5 years ago, and purchased the premium package and other options. There was a learning curve to mastering this app, and it did credible job. But there are important fundamental functions that are now extinct, rendering the app useless for navigation beyond giving verbal instruction. And now the biggest issue is the frustration I have with their customer service that has ignored repeated requests regarding legitimate performance failures that were once promised with the Premium +Traffic North America-Lifetime License, Head up display lifetime license, Real View Navigation-Lifetime License, etc. etc. This app no longer has a landscape mode for either Head-Up Display or Real View Navigation. They only way they blue line/arrow within “Real View Navigation” had any value was in landscape mode. I finally grew tired of being ignored every time I addressed this consistent issue through their “give us feedback” venue. I also have the Sygic Travel app, and both have become a waste of money. Since I happened upon the complaints here, I decided to add mine to the heap. I want to see if this addition placed in this forum will stir this recalcitrant Sygic team into enough initiative to respond to me on this forum. I want the “bug fixed” with an update and apology afters years of complaining.
A little annoying
by Len1304 on 2022/01/05 23:31
Overall love the app. Makes a great offline gps for areas without coverage. Just wish it would keep me signed in. If the app gets closed I have to log back in every time.
My NAmerica premium lic I paid for disappeared
by bad cs no support on 2022/01/03 21:02
Nice app but zero help or support I paid for life time North America license and it disappeared I have apple payment receipts but only response is hope you enjoy app. I paid 13.99 now it’s gone only basic with no voice or map updates. Do expect help from them there is none. Looks like they updated app and now want a yearly payment. Look elsewhere so you don’t get lose out too.

by Vengaly2 on 2021/12/23 13:14
The application is still unusable. I don't know what's happening to them with this. It worked perfectly before ios 15, even my favorites were deleted. This message always appears since was update to iOS 15. I have more than 2 months with premium and it does not allow me to create the address to any site. And I’m so frustrated to change every time my favorite voice because app automatically change to synthetic voice always 😤
New subscription version 20.9.4
by Colonel Roy Mustang on 2021/12/23 00:20
Purchased the older none prescription version. With US maps it was $100 US. This version works much better! Easier to get addresses into the app and save them. I like the list of gas stations that comes up on my phone now. Phone is cradled right next to the map display in my ST. Maps and verbal instructions are good. I’m on a iPhone 11 with IOS 15. Apple Maps seems to have more business etc but there are loading problems out in the boonies with Apple Maps. Route won’t calculate if your needed maps are not loaded. So figure out which states you need and load them. I have a long trip from Illinois to southern Ca. Once all the maps I needed where loaded it calculated the route just fine. I’d like to have verbal hands free address capabilities. The builtin GPS in most cars has that but it can be frustrating to use. Further comments to came.

Paid for lifetime nationwide subscription like 30 bucks about a year ago and it worked well for a long time and now it seems like all the time it’s telling me my Subscription has expired. Pretty decent app on my head unit in my car otherwise but lots of little annoying things about it.wouldn’t recommend it.

Can’t create route.
by Elman1164 on 2021/12/07 20:27
It was the best navigation application I had. Not any more. It stop working after updating to iOS 15. I thought the problem is a device and replaced device but problem still exists. It has huge mapping issues and it wouldn’t find address as previous version did. For example: My work place address is 243 Medford street Malden Massachusetts , but instead of Malden It shows some weird name Bellrock. Bellrock it is name of neighborhood , not the city. If you try Malden it would never find it. I wrote to support tens of times but still didn’t get response when it going to get fixed. Very disappointed, very disappointed.

Not There Yet in North America
by Jar546 on 2021/11/29 17:57
It’s still continues to give me a really weird routes that I don’t have on other map apps. There are times when there are businesses that you could see from the highway yet are on their own street and this app wants me to stop on a highway to access a business rather than going on the road that leads to it. This has a way to go before they can consider charging us for premium which I already paid and regret. The only reason why I am using this is because my Ducati motorcycle only connect to this application, otherwise I use Waze
Company motto: overpromise - under deliver
by LeftyLawdawg on 2021/11/28 19:04
Well if I could give negative stars I would say it’s a -5 star app. I have had this thing for years and continue to be hopeful that it will work someday. The 5 star ratings must be given by the developers and their family as I can find no value in the app. Isuue: app displays a turn arrow and a distance of greater than a couple of miles. Doesn’t give the name of the street on which to turn just says “follow the route”. NOT USEFULE Issue: app cannot find my home address even when I’m there. Says to download the appropriate map data. Hey, you guys supply the map data, make it right. I have reported the address and lat/long coordinates for over 5 years, still can’t find it. Issue: app crashes ALL THE TIME. I have never completed a trip regardless of how short it is without an app crash. Ya gotta do better than that. Issue: app crashes several times during map downloads. They want you to pay a premium to get new maps every month. Why would I want to go through that frustration every month when I can barely stand it every 4 months. Issue: I provide corrections and feedback but all I ever get is a form letter that says when enough folks desire (read demand) the change they’ll consider it. Sorry, I’m just trying to make this thing work the way a map app should work. I can’t believe you don’t really want the input. I could go on about the roundabout navigation loops, directions to turn where there isn’t a road, etc. but that would be like shooting the dog after you kicked it too many times. If you’ve read this far you got game and hopefully enough sense to not waste your time or money. Use apple maps or google maps. If you set your route while you have cell coverage it will navigate to your destination even if you drive out of coverage.
Good App !

Ducati partnered with the app
by Rick Ayers on 2021/11/28 14:57
But the app doesn’t seem to have partnered with Ducati. I bought a brand new motorcycle in Italy, and it connects directly to my phone to display a map function when navigating. It’s super helpful but the only map application I can use is Sygic. I thought it would be fine, but when I went to look up directions to go back to the dealership for routine maintenance, the map software couldn’t even locate the Ducati dealership in Naples, Rome or anywhere nearby (I bought in Caserta). I had to go to Google to get the coordinates eventually to copy and paste into the app. On a later drive, I had an appointment and the navigation sent me on a new route it said would be faster through an area I didn’t know. It was directing me to go through an area that has been closed for two years and I ended up late to my appointment due to backtracking. To top it all off, I keep getting asked by the app to upgrade to premium when I can use Google maps for free, which overall provides me a better experience. I don’t care for the spam, the bad instructions or lack of a proper search function (other major landmarks are equally difficult to find, regardless of searching in Italian or English thus far). One star

Why have 3D buildings gone?
by RHumphryes on 2021/11/13 18:50
So I bought this app because I wanted the 3D buildings. I bought the premium lifetime. After a map update I got my 3D buildings. However, now it appears that 3D buildings are gone. Also, why do I have to repeatedly re-login to the app???

Money Grabber
by KickMasterPro on 2021/11/12 11:51
I’ve had Sygic for several years now and have really loved your app. Its best feature is being able to download maps and use them offline as many places I go have limited or no cellular service. I like it even though the maps aren’t always correct and one time led my wife to a cow pasture instead of the Hershey park! I’ve always given you a break since your a British company and I’m in the US. Despite these issues, I’ve purchased every lifetime offer they’ve put out. My only issue is that, as of late, you’ve switched their business model to a subscription service instead of allowing your customers to buy your product outright. This is why I dropped my rating by two stars and have switched to mainly using a competing product. The main reason I was attracted to your product, besides the offline maps, is that I could pay once and be done. Your latest add says “you can get a yearly Premium+ license for a special loyalty price”… “Loyalty” they say… I’ve already purchased EVERY product offered to date and THIS is how you reward my loyalty? By changing the rules mid stream? I’m sorry, but I’m not going to play anymore. I’m sure you don’t care about losing just one customer… but I’m placing this review out there to warn all your future customers. Slowly but surely we’re losing more and more of our hard earned income to this type of business model and I for one am not going to participate.

by nonoone77 on 2021/11/09 14:49
The app crashes constantly logging you out losing all memory of the route you were driving on. You must pull over to login and set a new route. This is deliberate trying to sell you another upgrade. I have a paid pro account.

by Alkanx on 2021/11/09 01:20
2D north-up keeps switching to 3D and zooming in-out even after setup to 2D only, used it for about 10 min and turned it off it’s so annoying. It’s a clunky app, even the default apps by Apple and Google are superior!
Maps don’t have real time traffic update
by SudhirHebbar on 2021/11/04 02:23
Maps don’t have real time traffic updates as Google/Apple/Waze maps have. Please improve in this area. I have tried offline feature. It works good. We need the app to also remember where I parked when the car is parked so it can guide the user back to parking if needed. Google /Apple/ waze have this feature. Please help incorporate these features in your next release . Update:: Lowering the rating to 1 star. Reason is that I have been giving constant feedback for over 2 months about app crashing when connected to CarPlay and all I get is standard response that reinstall the app. I even did that, but it still crashes. Developers please fix the issue. Also many of locations which you can find on Google, Waze and Apple maps are not shown on this app map. Don’t know what the issues are for not getting proper updates to maps. I have even updated the map when I reinstalled the app. Is this company still working? Or because of COVID-19 they have bundled up , shut down? Totally disappointed with this app .. Update : still the app crashes when you pass through net of freeways crisscross each other . I tried the app in india. It crashes here too.. Ok more update. I was sitting at a location in Palo Alto and searched for the same place in this map and it showed the location is in Ventura and is 70ft from me. Really? Do you think we are fools ? Apple Inc. please help delete this app from app store as this is scam .

CarPlay should include with Premium World 🌎
by Nguyen Texas on 2021/10/29 16:26
I bought the Premium World Lifetime License for backup when traveling overseas, and whenever my phone doesn't have a phone signal. I like this app for almost anything. However, the Premium World Lifetime License should include CARPLAY instead of force user to buy extra every basic function. I would recommend this app for anyone need an onboard map, and willing to give it 5 stars, but since the map useless for Apple CarPlay so I think it deserves 1 star.
Follow the route
by ScooterHeyer on 2021/10/28 23:33
“Follow the route.” That’s it. Nothing about which street I will turn on next, or if it will be an exit, or anything. Just, “Follow the route.” Reality doesn’t allow me to cross four lanes of freeway traffic when the directions suddenly indicate I should exit now, but showed all four travel lanes were recommended just a moment ago.

Basic Functions Bug-Ridden on iPad Pro
by Disappointed in Va. on 2021/10/19 01:56
I have had Sygic on my iPad for years now, hoping the developer would eventually fix the software issues. It has been to no avail. While new bells and whistles have been added, bugs in the basic functions of the app have not been fixed. I will focus on the two issues that concern me most. The most debilitating issue is with map management. Map updates are highly problematic. The app often crashes during map updates. If a map update is interrupted for any reason, crash or otherwise, the app does not recognize that the update is incomplete. This means you can never finish the update. In the past I got around this by deleting all my maps and re-installing them. However, in the latest version of the app, I am unable to delete maps at all after a botched map update. Therefore, the maps remain in a state of limbo. My second major issue is with the Favorites list. It is impossible to delete a location from the Favorites list – if you open the Edit window, select a site to be deleted, press Delete, nothing happens. I get the distinct impression that the IOS version of this app is not high on the developer’s priority list. Otherwise, why would such basic functions still be glitchy after so many app updates over a period of years. I have paid a significant price for this app and its add-ons. I expect solid, reliable software for my investment.
It finds bad routes
by esprit85 on 2021/10/18 01:56
I like the usability but it often finds bad routes. Although there is an entrance on your right, this app tells me to go straight and make a u turn to use an entrance on the other side. I stopped using it.

Sygic is limiting itself
by Ayomury on 2021/10/16 17:38
I am using Sygic for about ten years. But, my usage was decreased because of their money trap approach. For example, car play connection and map updates. These are an integral part of a navigation map. When I purchased Sygic, it was included all of them. Actually Car Play is required an additional purchase for once. Now, it requires a subscription membership. But, I don’t agree to pay for a subscription if I purchased an app. For me, a navigation app must offer all options together and can be priced either one time puchase or subscription only. Once, I was Sygic’s advocate in the past. But, not anymore. Still, I use its offline map feature but very rarely.

Unable to switch from android to Apple
by Nav00703 on 2021/10/13 17:47
I purchased a sygic premium package on android and then I lost my phone and decided to switch to Apple. But realized they don’t allow you to switch from android to Apple, so unless you decide to be on the same platform it is pointless to purchase it. The whole idea of paying for a 3rd party app is it is linked to your email id and not to the underlying OS.

Missing so many search locations
by rps2020 on 2021/09/28 14:08
First, I’ve had this app for years in the US. Maybe it works better in other parts of the world, but here it’s terrible. It can’t find my local Jaguar dealership that less than 15 miles away. That’s just one example, but there are many more. The other reason for one star is the continuing need to purchase subscriptions. I’ve purchased Basic World- Lifetime License, Premium + Traffic N. America Lifetime and Realview Navigation. Even with all those purchases, they want me to pay for Premium Plus to use CarPlay. They want me to pay again for an inferior product. When will it stop? With Waze, Apple Maps and Google Maps being free, this seems like a ripoff.
Not good enough
by PaHiker on 2021/09/25 22:10
Admittedly I have only been using this for a short time, but since the free trial period is almost over I believe I’ve had enough experience to know that I don’t want to pay for the full version. I use the app via CarPlay in my RAV4 since it enables me to use other apps as well. The problem with Sygic and CarPlay is that the app is always in Dark mode, no matter the time of day, and even when other apps are running in Light mode. Side roads are hard enough to see in Dark mode at night, during the day time it is near impossible. The area I live in is mountainous, because of this cellular tower connections aren’t always reliable. This happened during one trip causing the app to lose track of where I was. The other problem is that when I was back into cellular range the app never recognized it, and so didn’t re-establish navigation. Sygic claims this is a GPS navigation app, but it is not. It requires strong cellular connection to function properly. This is great if you happen to live in Cupertino, but in the real world there are just too many places where cellular service either isn’t strong or just doesn’t exist. Traveling cross-country several times a year I need something that is truly reliable, Sygic isn’t it.
Greedy: Existing premium customer feels cheated
by 0xdky on 2021/09/22 11:57
I paid quite a lot for premium maps, mainly for frequent map updates. Moving map update frequency to subscription only is cheating.

by JayBee 04 on 2021/09/15 20:56
This app saved my life on a recent trip to Iceland! We expected our rental car to have built in navigation or a GPS system but it didn’t come equipped with either. We couldn’t access google maps internationally without wifi, and we were driving all around the country, so I downloaded this app and truly don’t know how we would have gotten around without it. Super accurate and helpful!
Don’t be fooled
by Ybasteve on 2021/09/14 21:13
I am not satisfied with this app. You would think that the display would mirror the CarPlay screen, nope! The pop up lane screen that tells you what lane to be in to turn doesn’t appear on the car play dash screen, but only appears on the phone app screen. This was the whole reason for buying this app! The developers need to show up pictures of the CarPlay screen so that buyers don’t think they are going to get the same display as the phone app. Very disappointed!

The application won’t allow me to edit the address associated with my home. Not very straightforward, overly cluttered, hard to use. Sorry I paid a premium for this. Even their FAQ page is hard to use, with no search feature, just a long string of links.

I Want to Love It, but . . .
by ralphwaldo on 2021/08/24 21:20
This is a great-looking app, and I really like that you can download maps for offline use. And the other cool functions seem awesome. But the problems I’ve run into so far will keep me from using Sygic to replace my current driving app. The first problem is that my place of work doesn’t show up when I search for it (it’s a high school, and a big one at that.) I had to go to the map, find the school (it was listed by name there), and drop a pin on it. After reading another review with the same issue it seems like it might be somewhat of a thing with this app. The second problem I’ve noticed is that as I’m currently trying to use the app the GPS is placing me about a mile north of where I actually am. That doesn’t bode well for navigation accuracy. Also, the map I downloaded for my state is not up-to-date. One of the main roads I take to work isn’t listed. It’s a more recent road, but it’s been there long enough that I’d expect it to have been added at this point (the road was completed about 2 months ago.) I hope they get things fixed, because I really do want to love this app.

Poor Navigation
by 304dwd on 2021/08/21 15:43
The voice prompts can be confusing, sometimes repeating the instructions twice in a row and other times not. Frequently got conflicting information such as advance instructions at the next intersection to turn left , and then the next prompt would be to turn right. The exit information, while on the interstate, comes way too late, you are more than half way past the exit ramp and it says take exit in 200 feet.... worthless.
Needs work
by GrimReaper25 on 2021/08/15 18:02
I tried this GPS navigation software about a year ago.I loaded it up again today after a year they should’ve been major improvements to the software. If you drive a car it’s not too bad but if you drive a tractor trailer it leaves much to be desired. Instead of listing truckstops the way it supposed to for trucks when you have the truck profile loaded it lists gas stations that trucks cannot get into. There are a few other things that need improvement and I pointed this out to Sygic A year ago and they’re all still the same problems. I see that he has come down in the price of the software quite considerably. All I can say is purchase at your own risk. I offered a year ago to help this person make his software better by using it and pointing out where are the floors were. The only problem is I was not going to pay for software while I was helping him correct the problem. As a truck driver in the United States I could’ve helped him extensively but he refused the help.

Getting Dumber Every Release
by iKanakaberaka on 2021/08/13 13:15
I’m a premium user. Bought Sygic for a few specific features and they’ve removed them with updates: 3D view - nope. Standalone GPS have a view that gives you about 45deg Birdseye view, some even to the horizon. Great for getting your bearings. Sygic did this. Now it don’t. ‘But you can tilt the view’. From straight down to just nearly straight down Buttons that press themselves- wow. Talk about Nanny app. When you zoom out, the “Recenter” button gives itself a little timer bar, counts down, and then presses itself. Because the app knows you don’t want to see that view, and if you do, your wrong. Oh so you can just go into settings and change the sett.. oh they don’t have any of those in settings? .. oh. OK. I’d go back to the first version I bought ( bought ) in a heartbeat. But Apple says that’s not possible.
I want it to be 5 stars!!
by DelanoRenee on 2021/08/12 13:48
I love this app- I really do but after the last 2 updates, the crashes- while I’m trying to follow the directions! :( it’s happened a few times. When I restart the app after the crash or even just opening the app getting ready to go somewhere, the app won’t load it opens but it’s just blank. I’ll force close and restart and sometimes that helps, sometimes it comes up when it’s ready. I work early mornings and last thing I need it the app not to work while I’m driving on an unfamiliar road at night/early morning. Also the voice promoter cuts off and you can only hear a portion of the directions. Thank you for creating this app!

I downloaded this app to use for navigation with my Sync 3.0 system in my 2017 Ford F-150. Sync recognized the app was there, but that’s all. No matter what I tried it would never actually show the Sygic app working. Sync just displayed, “Connecting to device,” and that was it. I even restarted my phone and reset Sync. Very frustrating.
Support response
by Tinupen1 on 2021/07/31 01:18
I am writing this with regret having bought this app. But now to the facts. Support is unresponsive; just getting an automated reply every time I submit an issue. Would be nice someone would actually respond to the issues submitted. Here are some of the issues which I reported. App crashes frequently while driving. Doesn’t find a lot of addresses anymore; even do maps are updated. I recommend not buying this app. I wished I could have written a better review. Updates of 07/24/2021: I thought in my prior message that the company would acknowledge their failures or mishaps and try to improve the app. As of this writing, nobody followed up on any issues I reported. The app still crashes, which is very dangerous for any driver to restart the app while concentrating on the traffic; which in my mind, makes it very dangerous to use the app. I do wish Apple would have a thorough app review for apps submitted to the App Store. Some of the developers surely wouldn’t be able to post any of their apps and people would have to deal with such a messy up and possible put their life’s in danger. I wrote this follow up in the hope something gets resolved; after all, people paid real money for it. Shame on you!

Update to previous 1-star rating
by Clpritch on 2019/08/04 13:48
New Review: I love the graphics and Lane prompts in this app. Development team is prompt about responding and they’ve fixed a lot of issues that made the app hard to use. Landmarks and locations now are searchable. Yesterday the app was nimble enough to find the best route through an Interstate closure with traffic slowed to a stop AND multiple road closures in downtown. Never encountered stopped traffic on the drive using Sygic. It takes a little getting used to but well worth it. First review: This app has very few landmarks loaded into its databases. You must Google a landmark then put the address into Sygic in order to navigate. Love the graphics but I’ve never found a single location in the app by name, including libraries and schools. Not worth the money. Company offered to enter each one I report but would not refund the purchase until they have more appropriate map and search capabilities.
Disappointed
by Subxxero on 2018/10/11 00:44
Downloaded this app months ago but only used it once or twice because the search bar was horrible. I was using Google Maps and I never had issues finding places near me. This app seems to expect you to know the full address of where your going. You can’t just type in the name of a restaurant. This is just frustrating. A few days ago, I decided to give the app one more chance because I liked the idea of the augmented reality feature ( which I paid for). I tried it for the first time today and it was a total let down. The idea is awesome but it’s hard to tell where your next turn is. The AR screen tells your speed and distance but there are no cues to warn you about exits, turns, NADA! Nothing! I missed my exit because the sound was turned down and you simply can’t see the turns in AR mode. I’m going to triple check that I didn’t miss a setting somewhere because I really want this to work. If not... I’m going to request a refund. UPDATE: still no sound! Then when you get online to try and contact the seller, they just send you in circles. There is no clear way to request a refund. I’m sure I can call itunes but why not make it easy? BECAUSE YOU DONT WANT TO GIVE $$ BACK FOR A POOR APP! Sometimes customer service is what makes or breaks your company...hiding your non existent service Dept behind links that send you in frustrating circles. I WILL BE TRYING TO CONTACT SOMEONE to try and get my money back.
Still frustrating!
by Histnrd on 2018/08/04 18:16
Update:the search function has greatly improved, but now the directions leave much to be desired. I have noticed that the map shows all lanes of a highway are fine, only to find that it tells me it is time to turn less than 1000 feet from the exit, sometimes it finally tells me I am turning right when the exit only lane appears. Also, on my last trip it kept telling me to get into the carpool lane so it showed me turning, every mile or two; this made it impossible to know when my real turn would be. It would be nice to get more specific info about future turns too. Finally, why is the info bar at top sometimes blue and sometimes green? I am sure there is a reason but haven’t figured it out yet. At this point I only use Sygic when I am in areas with no cell signal, otherwise I use Apple maps. I used to love Sygic and keep hoping they will finally work out all the bugs. If I can get the program to understand where I am going, it is top notch, but actually getting it to recognize an address or find a location is frustrating at best and an utter failure at worse. At one point you could share an address from Apple maps and that was great but then it was removed, by Apple or Sygic I have no idea, but pretty much an epic failure now most of the time. As I do like the maps, once I have gone someplace I mark the location so I can find it again.

by JimSpeedy1Dino on 2022/01/06 04:39
I purchased this app about 5 years ago, and purchased the premium package and other options. There was a learning curve to mastering this app, and it did credible job. But there are important fundamental functions that are now extinct, rendering the app useless for navigation beyond giving verbal instruction. And now the biggest issue is the frustration I have with their customer service that has ignored repeated requests regarding legitimate performance failures that were once promised with the Premium +Traffic North America-Lifetime License, Head up display lifetime license, Real View Navigation-Lifetime License, etc. etc. This app no longer has a landscape mode for either Head-Up Display or Real View Navigation. They only way they blue line/arrow within “Real View Navigation” had any value was in landscape mode. I finally grew tired of being ignored every time I addressed this consistent issue through their “give us feedback” venue. I also have the Sygic Travel app, and both have become a waste of money. Since I happened upon the complaints here, I decided to add mine to the heap. I want to see if this addition placed in this forum will stir this recalcitrant Sygic team into enough initiative to respond to me on this forum. I want the “bug fixed” with an update and apology afters years of complaining.
Good maps. Poor navigation
by LifeInLoFi on 2019/08/22 04:44
The maps are good but not the best. The off-line maps and navigation increase their value, however. The turn by turn directions has some good features including speed camera warnings. The navigation needs a lot of improvement and can be confusing and possibly dangerous if you don’t know the route. Directions are often vague and confusing, and sometimes even incorrect. While driving on a highway, the directions often do not give exit names so you don’t know which road you exit on. They often told me to turn where there are no turns. Directions tell you to simply “turn left” instead of “turn left to merge onto the highway”. And the directions missed the Walmart 5 miles from my house located in the the middle of a major US city, instead directing me to the back of the strip center one block away from the Walmart. I bought the heads up display option which is a good feature — basic but well done. But it’s useless if the rest of the app is going to get me lost along the way. For turn by turn directions, the two major iOS map apps are much more accurate and easier to follow.
Ducati partnered with the app
by Rick Ayers on 2021/11/28 14:57
But the app doesn’t seem to have partnered with Ducati. I bought a brand new motorcycle in Italy, and it connects directly to my phone to display a map function when navigating. It’s super helpful but the only map application I can use is Sygic. I thought it would be fine, but when I went to look up directions to go back to the dealership for routine maintenance, the map software couldn’t even locate the Ducati dealership in Naples, Rome or anywhere nearby (I bought in Caserta). I had to go to Google to get the coordinates eventually to copy and paste into the app. On a later drive, I had an appointment and the navigation sent me on a new route it said would be faster through an area I didn’t know. It was directing me to go through an area that has been closed for two years and I ended up late to my appointment due to backtracking. To top it all off, I keep getting asked by the app to upgrade to premium when I can use Google maps for free, which overall provides me a better experience. I don’t care for the spam, the bad instructions or lack of a proper search function (other major landmarks are equally difficult to find, regardless of searching in Italian or English thus far). One star
Good overall
by %*#%^*+!!! on 2018/07/10 22:44
Nice app, It takes a while to get the hang of it as the blue lines at the beginning confused me to whether avoid or stick to these. Volume was down though and it all made sense when I heard and saw the instruction. Would suggest to change to green colour though as green is always “go this way”. I travel a lot to different places and I bought the world unlimited version. I’ve just tried it in Spain where in Madrid worked pretty nicely, the only problem was when inside a tunnel with junctions in it as these are not shown (I reckon due to loss of GPS signal) but the commands need a bit of improvement to get in the correct lane. Between Oliva (Valencia) back to Madrid, the app got lost four different times showing junctions that didn’t exist and erroneous turns when is not even possible. The way is very straight forward, very much a motorway where there is only one time at which you need to make a slight turn to move onto another motorway (Barcelona or Madrid). I just ignored the spurious commands but this definitely needs to be looked into as may cause confusion. Once the turn commands were ignored the display reverts back to normal. Also, a heard quite a few times “slight turn” when it was a nearly 90 degree turn. All the best and keep updating and correcting these minor bugs. It’s definitely a worth to have app
Useless now
by Beighn on 2020/04/01 11:53
This was a great app when I purchased it a year ago but greed has corrupted it since. Ever since they started the map subscription towards the middle to end of last year the software is full of bugs. It will no longer give you the fastest route and will give you a route that is 1-3 hours longer. Will not reroute it’s directions. Crashes at least twice each 2 1/2 hour trip. Maps are still incomplete such as 3D building feature. Incorrect info on maps such as street names. And the dash cam plugin is the most frustrating bugfest. The dash cam will only record for a certain amount of time and when you go to start a new recording it will over write your last recording. Customer service will not actually read any bug reports you send them and reply with a canned email that doesn’t actually address the bug reported and try to up sell more of their plug ins. The core software has bugs that are overlooked while they focus on adding more pay-to-use features that have their own bugs. It’s just a cash grab now with little tech support and broken features.
Doesn’t need mobile data connection! Great everywhere.
by Bobshoe1 on 2018/11/24 04:35
We used Sygic for two years touring the western USA in a Sprinter Van type RV. Other than downloading maps, it does not need cell data for navigation. Even in the desert where there was no cellphone reception, and therefore no Google or Apple maps, Sygic never failed us. The app keeps getting better and better with updates and features like head up navigation on your windshield — which is so helpful driving at night. Much better than a Garmin or Rand McNally dedicated GPS. On the iPads you get an amazing large navigation screen, unlike a small GPS screen. The small lifetime payment gives me Sygic on my iPhone, iPad and iPad Mini. This is one of the top ten apps of any kind I’ve ever used.
New subscription version 20.9.4
by Colonel Roy Mustang on 2021/12/23 00:20
Purchased the older none prescription version. With US maps it was $100 US. This version works much better! Easier to get addresses into the app and save them. I like the list of gas stations that comes up on my phone now. Phone is cradled right next to the map display in my ST. Maps and verbal instructions are good. I’m on a iPhone 11 with IOS 15. Apple Maps seems to have more business etc but there are loading problems out in the boonies with Apple Maps. Route won’t calculate if your needed maps are not loaded. So figure out which states you need and load them. I have a long trip from Illinois to southern Ca. Once all the maps I needed where loaded it calculated the route just fine. I’d like to have verbal hands free address capabilities. The builtin GPS in most cars has that but it can be frustrating to use. Further comments to came.
Money Grabber
by KickMasterPro on 2021/11/12 11:51
I’ve had Sygic for several years now and have really loved your app. Its best feature is being able to download maps and use them offline as many places I go have limited or no cellular service. I like it even though the maps aren’t always correct and one time led my wife to a cow pasture instead of the Hershey park! I’ve always given you a break since your a British company and I’m in the US. Despite these issues, I’ve purchased every lifetime offer they’ve put out. My only issue is that, as of late, you’ve switched their business model to a subscription service instead of allowing your customers to buy your product outright. This is why I dropped my rating by two stars and have switched to mainly using a competing product. The main reason I was attracted to your product, besides the offline maps, is that I could pay once and be done. Your latest add says “you can get a yearly Premium+ license for a special loyalty price”… “Loyalty” they say… I’ve already purchased EVERY product offered to date and THIS is how you reward my loyalty? By changing the rules mid stream? I’m sorry, but I’m not going to play anymore. I’m sure you don’t care about losing just one customer… but I’m placing this review out there to warn all your future customers. Slowly but surely we’re losing more and more of our hard earned income to this type of business model and I for one am not going to participate.
Poor Directions
by FM-Pros on 2020/07/29 14:03
I got this because I was going to be traveling in the western U.S. and knew I would have sparse internet connectivity with my phone and tablet. However, when I put in a destination and asked for directions, it gave me a 155 mile 2:51 minute route, which I knew was wrong. Fortunately, I had WiFi at my hotel and was able to produce the correct route in Apple Maps: 43 miles and 1 hour. As it turned out, the mis-routing was a result of the fact that the shortest route sent me across the border of another state for a couple of miles, and I hadn’t downloaded that state’s map. But rather than inform me that I needed to download another map, I got a route that was three times as long. Not great. Also, when navigating, if a road changes its name, the app instructs me to “turn right”, when I really need to go straight. This means that I have to look at the app and cannot rely on audio cues alone while driving - also not great.
Basic Functions Bug-Ridden on iPad Pro
by Disappointed in Va. on 2021/10/19 01:56
I have had Sygic on my iPad for years now, hoping the developer would eventually fix the software issues. It has been to no avail. While new bells and whistles have been added, bugs in the basic functions of the app have not been fixed. I will focus on the two issues that concern me most. The most debilitating issue is with map management. Map updates are highly problematic. The app often crashes during map updates. If a map update is interrupted for any reason, crash or otherwise, the app does not recognize that the update is incomplete. This means you can never finish the update. In the past I got around this by deleting all my maps and re-installing them. However, in the latest version of the app, I am unable to delete maps at all after a botched map update. Therefore, the maps remain in a state of limbo. My second major issue is with the Favorites list. It is impossible to delete a location from the Favorites list – if you open the Edit window, select a site to be deleted, press Delete, nothing happens. I get the distinct impression that the IOS version of this app is not high on the developer’s priority list. Otherwise, why would such basic functions still be glitchy after so many app updates over a period of years. I have paid a significant price for this app and its add-ons. I expect solid, reliable software for my investment.
Maps don’t have real time traffic update
by SudhirHebbar on 2021/11/04 02:23
Maps don’t have real time traffic updates as Google/Apple/Waze maps have. Please improve in this area. I have tried offline feature. It works good. We need the app to also remember where I parked when the car is parked so it can guide the user back to parking if needed. Google /Apple/ waze have this feature. Please help incorporate these features in your next release . Update:: Lowering the rating to 1 star. Reason is that I have been giving constant feedback for over 2 months about app crashing when connected to CarPlay and all I get is standard response that reinstall the app. I even did that, but it still crashes. Developers please fix the issue. Also many of locations which you can find on Google, Waze and Apple maps are not shown on this app map. Don’t know what the issues are for not getting proper updates to maps. I have even updated the map when I reinstalled the app. Is this company still working? Or because of COVID-19 they have bundled up , shut down? Totally disappointed with this app .. Update : still the app crashes when you pass through net of freeways crisscross each other . I tried the app in india. It crashes here too.. Ok more update. I was sitting at a location in Palo Alto and searched for the same place in this map and it showed the location is in Ventura and is 70ft from me. Really? Do you think we are fools ? Apple Inc. please help delete this app from app store as this is scam .

Not worth the money
by Brendan the deer on 2018/09/17 20:22
Laughably poor navigation, but the joke’s on me because I was foolish enough to buy the premium version. Directions are often wrong - with obvious inaccuracies that would take us well out of our way if followed, or had us leaving highways only to be told to circle back and renter them. When I ignored incorrect directions, the map acted as though I hadn’t and remained centered on roads I was not on for up to 30 seconds after which it had difficulty plotting a new course for several minutes. Maps themselves appear be be based on old data and graphics look dated. Lane assist a nuisance as it pops up seemingly randomly. Buggy spoken directions failed to name many streets, stuttered, repeated itself frequently, and hilariously used wrong units with alerts like “speed camera in 1000 miles.” Unsure where they are getting their traffic data but it is not even close to real time. Also unsure where their five star reviews are coming from. Wouldn’t be a real issue if this app weren’t so expensive.
Not quite ready
by Flamewinger on 2021/07/05 14:55
The latest update causes the screen to freeze when using it in vehicle dash. Fix it and stop changing things! I paid for Sygic Car Nav when it was out. When Sygic GPS Nav came out I bought the individual components and in Aug. I will have to pay a yearly subscription. Don’t think I will. Maybe, when it settles down and stops changing fee structure and the way it works, I might check it out. Earlier problems - I use this in BRP Connect which is a smartphone integration to a motorcycle dash. The most current problem is after a short while Sygic goes silent. The only way to get the sound directions back is to stop and restart everything. So many hiccups in using another navigation app. Map colors are limited. Announcements are quirky. When using it in a vehicle dash the route you set up on the phone disappears when you open it in the dash. Time consuming have to set up again.
Junk App for Navigation
by ZomB667 on 2017/09/23 16:18
This app is junk compared to Maps, google maps etc. Lies about lane preview but I’ll I’ve seen is a window with a with a picture of what’s supposed to be a road and just two blue “lanes” and this pops up randomly, Horrible navigation, at least in LA county, tells you to go the opposite way of destination sometimes and tells you to go one way then changes at the last min, also if your going to be driving in the same direction for a mile or longer all it tells you is follow directions and doesn’t preview what to look for next till its almost late, had to switch to maps to get actual directions and and a direction and street name to look for. Had this app open while my gf had maps on this was giving a completely different direction that would make me want to make a u turn or jump on the freeway while were close to my destination but not too sure of getting there. Don’t buy this app its your better off using a different navigation app
Pay to CarPlay.. pay pay pay..
by David O in Tacoma on 2019/01/04 15:54
There’s great features in this product. I love the stop light camera warnings, I love that it warns you if you’re going over the posted speed limit in an area. The traffic updates are far better than competing products or the built in iOS app. There are some quirks: speed limit zone aren’t accurate in my area - sometimes being off by as much as 15 MPH and there are weird artifacts like my next door neighbor’s house being listed as a restaurant(it’s not). Also - everything is an upgrade or a “premium feature”. Some things I can see why: Their real time dash cam is an upgrade - ok that’s fair. Their real view AR navigation is an upgrade - ok. I can see that too. Map updates for life? Painful but at the moment cheaper than competitors. But CARPLAY SUPPORT IS A PAID ADDON? Really? That’s just gouging people. Either offer support or don’t.
IT CRASHES
by T0x15e on 2020/03/07 17:59
Constantly crashes for me. During my last trip it did it 3 times. Every time it does you have to restart it, confirm that you're still on the same route, and wait for it to do whatever it does for several seconds before it goes back to giving directions. This is completely unacceptable and has not been addressed in any of the many updates this app has received... But they sure do like to add paid add-ons like HUDs and dashcams! And that's not even getting into the shady map update practices. Not even a month after I paid for a lifetime subscription to updates and traffic, they added a new super-duper premium map update option that gets you monthly map updates instead of quarterly... Except sometimes months get skipped and the maps are still out of date. I just can't trust it anymore. I'm canceling whatever subscriptions I have with Sygic and deleting the app. Enough is enough.
Professional and Powerful GPS
by WALTERCOM on 2019/06/04 17:02
GPS for automobiles is serious, very serious thing. Nowadays, erring the route is always a sign of lost time, unnecessary spending and nervousness. If you are looking for a professional geolocation tool to navigate safely and not be hostage to 3/4/5g and Wi-Fi, do not hesitate! Sygic is an excellent off-line browser with incredible accuracy and updated maps. Drive safely and assured that Sygic will always lead you to the best path. I did several tests with other GPS applications, but none proved so stable, precise and with an essential characteristic: Do not leave you in the hand, when it is more precise: when there is no internet or satellite signal. Sygic will take you wherever you want to go. Congratulations!
Avoid this App if You Can!
by AJ Mac on 2021/07/08 16:33
No separate between land and water. All the same color. Major towns and cities cannot be seen unless you zoom in very close. V18.8.6 had a superior graphical interface. Update: Resolved most land and water GI issues by deleting and reinstalling app. The map still needs better road contrast. Colors between land and roads too subtle along backroads. Looks like this is moving to a subscription base app. I will pay for an upgrade if it’s worth it and not a subscription for mediocre updates. Time to start looking for a replacement to this app. 9 updates to version 20 and everyone has the same description. No mention of what was addressed in the updates. This is lazy. Are you fixing the app or what? OMG This app keeps getting worse. It now defaults to the robotic TTY voice when you don’t have internet connection no matter what other voice you had selected. This app is now officially a train wreck.
Not what I paid for
by rfplanner on 2018/10/28 02:20
I have just driven from El Salvador to the US border. This program has taken me to parts of Puebla and San Luis Potosí that I would not recommend anyone traveling to. The routing algorithm is flawed, or the maps are not up to date. In Mexico, where I was advised that they had up to date information, there are hundreds of petroleum stations not in the database. I have not been able to find hotels that have been built for at least five years. Just this morning I wanted to leave San Luis Potosí for Monclova and even though I could see the correct road in front of me, just 20m away, the program tried to route me down backstreets that were not in any way main highways. I drove to the highway and the program continued to try to route me elsewhere. It’s flawed, no doubt in my mind. I ended up having to use Waze to find my way correctly. Waze knew every point I put in. It found all the hotels I wanted to stay at. Also, the color scheme for the day is absolute rubbish, it can not be changed, and it’s almost impossible to see roads around a route. Want to try to divert to a different route? Forget it. Once the program runs its impossible to try to look for an alternative to avoid accidents or roadworks etc. In short, it’s a flawed product.
Crashes constantly …
by ArnellTheBlaster on 2020/03/08 16:47
Update: App has been stable for the last few days with no app update. This makes me think the issue was in the backend when it was calling home (traffic updates etc). Going on a trip to test. Finger crossed (which is not something I should be thinking of). This version or combination of iOS causes this app to crash constantly. I have been unable to keep this running while driving and driving/navigating. (Will not stay active for more than 10 minutes before crashing). It will crash and go to the home screen. I have deleted and reinstalled the app, including the maps, but have the same issue. For me, the app is unusable. Went back to an older unsupported nav app and it seems to work fine on the latest version of iOS.
Not good enough
by PaHiker on 2021/09/25 22:10
Admittedly I have only been using this for a short time, but since the free trial period is almost over I believe I’ve had enough experience to know that I don’t want to pay for the full version. I use the app via CarPlay in my RAV4 since it enables me to use other apps as well. The problem with Sygic and CarPlay is that the app is always in Dark mode, no matter the time of day, and even when other apps are running in Light mode. Side roads are hard enough to see in Dark mode at night, during the day time it is near impossible. The area I live in is mountainous, because of this cellular tower connections aren’t always reliable. This happened during one trip causing the app to lose track of where I was. The other problem is that when I was back into cellular range the app never recognized it, and so didn’t re-establish navigation. Sygic claims this is a GPS navigation app, but it is not. It requires strong cellular connection to function properly. This is great if you happen to live in Cupertino, but in the real world there are just too many places where cellular service either isn’t strong or just doesn’t exist. Traveling cross-country several times a year I need something that is truly reliable, Sygic isn’t it.
Perplexed No-Confidence Disappointed
by Another MusicMan on 2021/04/16 04:33
Still trying to understand why the 5 star ratings. Long list of perceived negatives - seems to frequently crash, treats every curve in a road as if it’s a new road, distance notifiction to turns are inconsistent, highway exit and some toll notifications are are non existent, some cameras are not identified,, the user interface is confusing, settings options are extensive but excludes others, graphics are significantly lagging behind most others, no satellite images, and it is constantly checking-in on the phone - quite irritating while talking on the phone. A nit-pick, arrow representing car is always pointing north (not direction car is driving). Dumb me, I trusted the reviews and immediately paid for voice guidance etc., which utilizes a single robotic voice (desp ite trying all voices ) Net/net i have little confidence in its accuracy/providing safe routes —- Very disappointed.
Just purchased many of the apps!
by VOFITZ on 2019/04/26 17:44
So far so good. Am giving 5 Stars and will be updating my thoughts after using each one and getting a feeling of the functionality of each. I have paid for every other app and am Hopi g this one will prove to the best one over time. Update: 1. Ability to reach customer service and no where on site map can I locate a customer service link for assistance. 2. I have been a long time customer and user of Sygic and have always been disappointed with the lack of customer service and also unable to find workarounds for iOS application issues. 3. Sygic does not recognize past purchases, such as my dash cam and front display (app for night driving). In other words, Both in the sygic website and App Store I am being ask to pay for a service that I already paid for months and even years back. Sygic has to step it up making it easier to reach customer service which is now nonexistent to be frank. As a longtime customer, I do hope that Sygic puts more time in assisting customers either by email or better yet an 800 number to confer with a live Sygic CS Representative. I hope someone from Sygic reads this below satisfactory rating and reach out to me being that it may be the only way to get in contact with someone
The worst and most expensive GPS app
by K0F13 on 2017/09/03 11:02
The crew cares about taking your money but not to fix this broken app. You put so much money into it and yet this app useless. Very pricey too. I thought this would be better than Waze but it's a complete garbage. Customer service is horrible. It's takes almost a month for customer service to contact you and when they do, they can't even help you with your issues. At least Waze is free and dependable and reliable (does not crash). Making an address or POI search in like impossible. It does not even come up and it's constantly crashing. Stay away from this over priced garbage GPS app. DO NOT LET THE NICE INTERFACE FOOL YOU!!!. It's all for the money but not about fixing this app. They also use very old maps. The arrow on the map course falls off the map and then rotates in confusion. THAT RIGHT THERE IS AN EXTREME HAZARD THAT COULD CAUSE AN ACCIDENT. Stay away from this app until they take the initiative to fix this app.
A disappointing “Follow the Route”
by Jefrox77 on 2018/03/22 08:50
the “follow the route” is very annoying, you will not know your next turn till the last minute or 1-2 miles before it tells you the name of the exit of your next turn. In this case its very hard to prepare your next route or especially if someone will ask you whats your next turn? Because it doesn’t show up on your screen constantly. This is my only problem with this app and its very annoying. AGAIN VERY ANNOYING “FOLLOW THE ROUTE” instead of showing the name of your next turn!!!!! So im deleting this app till they will fix it😡 i paid premium and i say what a waste....
Angry Carplay Customer
by mecagueencima on 2019/01/26 12:45
This would have been a 5 star review. Let me start off by saying that this was the ONLY app I used for GPS. I loved it better than Google Maps, Apple Maps, WAZE, if there was a GPS app—I tried it. It’s an amazing app with really great features that you would get on an extremely fancy GPS unit (TOMTOM,Garmin, etc). I did pay to have accessibility to all of North America and some of the other add-ons you can purchase. I honestly didn’t mind paying the $20+ fee for all maps because of the offline map capability and the $5+ fee for the add-ons because the heads-up display is pretty cool. My frustration set in when Sygic was finally compatible with Carplay. I received a notification that it was finally available. I open the app, connect my phone and saw LIMITED CAPABILITY. I opened the app to see if I was doing something wrong when I saw the $35 fee to get full access on Carpay. You mean to tell me I am probably going to end up paying $60+ for a GPS app? It’s pretty messed up for this company to charge its already paid users a pretty hefty fee to have full access to a screen mirroring image on my dashboard. Thanks, but no thanks Sygic. You just lost me. If you make the fee $5 like your other add-ons, then sure. Although it really should just be included.
I Want to Love It, but . . .
by ralphwaldo on 2021/08/24 21:20
This is a great-looking app, and I really like that you can download maps for offline use. And the other cool functions seem awesome. But the problems I’ve run into so far will keep me from using Sygic to replace my current driving app. The first problem is that my place of work doesn’t show up when I search for it (it’s a high school, and a big one at that.) I had to go to the map, find the school (it was listed by name there), and drop a pin on it. After reading another review with the same issue it seems like it might be somewhat of a thing with this app. The second problem I’ve noticed is that as I’m currently trying to use the app the GPS is placing me about a mile north of where I actually am. That doesn’t bode well for navigation accuracy. Also, the map I downloaded for my state is not up-to-date. One of the main roads I take to work isn’t listed. It’s a more recent road, but it’s been there long enough that I’d expect it to have been added at this point (the road was completed about 2 months ago.) I hope they get things fixed, because I really do want to love this app.
Some good, some bad
by PopKornman on 2017/08/05 12:53
This app is great for those that want a truly offline map option and the lane assist is great....in theory. What I don't like is the fact that it waits until under 2 miles to tell you which exit you're looking for, which doesn't give you enough time to get over on some interstates. And quick interchanges are very confusing. I'm talking about those interstate exits that split into multiple lanes for different roads. This app doesn't give me enough information to get into the right lane fast enough. The only way to help this is to make sure you have the sound turned up because the voice seems to give you a bit more information. However, I prefer to drive with voice off.
Downloaded for Use with CarPlay
by edzmusic on 2019/06/15 00:51
Disappointed. I was looking for a solid, offline backup to Apple Maps for use with CarPlay. Apple Maps is great, but when you are in a low signal area, it can’t re-route you should you need to go off-route. Three issues with Sygic’s app made it a no-go for use with CarPlay: 1. the app, while using CarPlay, had trouble keeping my vehicle centered on the display, while constantly turning the map so you cannot see what the route and upcoming turns are going to be - seemed like it was having trouble locking onto GPS; 2. the voice navigation instructions were robotic and SLOW - not late in announcing, just spoken slowly; 3. the app crashed twice while navigating. I gave up and switched back Apple Maps. By the way, I tried TomTom’s app for CarPlay and it was not much better. If only Apple Maps had an offline mode.
Almost there
by Jerry7709 on 2017/08/21 22:27
This is one of the better GPS app outside of Apple Maps. I love the number of lanes it shows while drive and which lane to stay in before exiting the highway. The required speed limit for the road has been accurate and the navigation has been accepted. My disappointment has been in how slow it responds to redirecting when a turn is missed or when it suggests a faster route. You can drive another 10 yards before it catches up with you to get you back on track. This almost a deal breaker and hope the next update addresses this critical issue. Also, it has trouble locating me when sitting in my driveway and i'm ready to goto my destination. It doesn't locate until I begins driving so I'm not sure if I have to make a left or right when I leave. Another problem I've found is that when it's time to exit it doesn't show or announce the exit until around a mile until it's time to exit. This is way too late while you are in rush hour or unfamiliar with the area. Redirection is too slow it takes about 20 yards or so to realize that you've missed your turn and need be redirected. Not good! Taking this app down one star.
A little too glitchy for me!
by TrackerFan on 2019/05/16 18:57
I really want to like this app. I’m running it on an older iPhone 6 with the latest updates iOS. Two things especially in my experience: the upper left hand menu often defaults to a screen that tells you to speak one of several commands.....and of course you can’t close that screen to get back to the menu without suffering the same annoying crash; secondly, the trial version of the app that is supposed to give you an enhanced Apple Car Play experience crashes EVERY time I attempt to use it. My car uses the latest Ford Sync 3 infotainment which supports Car Play. Won’t be throwing good money after bad for that “upgrade”. Overall the interface is slick WHEN IT WORKS but It needs improvement and I hope they can get it done properly, but for now I’d say don’t waste your money here.
Don’t waste your money.
by Bubbed on 2019/09/03 03:28
In order to use this with Apple CarPlay, you have to buy the premium subscription which is more than $50. I did this and regret it. You cannot post alerts through the Apple CarPlay interface. You have to unplug your phone from your charger and do any postings on your cell phone. Using your cell phone while driving is illegal in many states. And it is not safe even where it is legal. I have used Waze for several years and I am totally satisfied with it. I don’t know why I spent money for this app. Also, the maps don’t seem up-to-date. There is a Kroger grocery store that moved from down the street from my office to the next street over about five years ago. The new grocery doesn’t show up in the database but the old grocery is where this program will take you. If I didn’t know better, I would be lost. Don’t buy this program.
Upsetting
by Kevinaw on 2018/08/23 19:47
During the trial period, everything seemed to work flawless (which is why I purchased it). But, since I purchased it, I am finding more and more flaws...such as, it doesn’t save my settings. Almost every time I open the app, something has changed. I have “fastest route” in my settings, but when I preview the routes, the primary route it chooses is not the fastest. When I change the route and select the “fastest route”, it goes back to the “longest route” when I start driving. The speed limits are not always correct. There was a good 3 mile stretch of interstate where the indicated speed limit was 5mph faster than what it should have been. I drive this route a lot and it has been the slower speed limit for a very long time (years, not months!). Apparently, all they want is your money!
Issue for 6 month
by Lawen2121 on 2019/02/07 21:43
I have priced multiple Addons in Sygic then I changed my device till know I am not able to restore my purchases or update my maps, already contacted sygic support by email and provide them with the screen shot of error and that I was that I am not able to update my map and I got some feedback at the end I was bored and saw that it was not going any where it was just emails from my side and to there sides still I am trying to find a way to make it work it’s not logical for me to spend this amount of money for it not to work properly I hope some from sygic read this so they can provide me with support by the way today I opened a new case with them regarding same issue to see if something can be done after 6 month I am hoping for the best but I am not optimistic
Please fix
by mildly dissapointed on 2018/02/11 19:31
App is ok but my home address is wrong and sometimes gives the wrong directions or sends you the long way around if your gonna charge so much for the app you should be doing better research of the state maps and roads can’t ask customers to try and recall every missed turn or wrong direction the app gave them on a trip that’s why we pay for the app so we don’t have to do your research for you I hope you get the app fixed soon I had to stop using it for now considering it doesn’t even know my own address and I can’t change it I should be able to change the address myself at least on my map so I do like the design and the way it’s laid out but am disappointed in the way it executes the directions
Sygic is limiting itself
by Ayomury on 2021/10/16 17:38
I am using Sygic for about ten years. But, my usage was decreased because of their money trap approach. For example, car play connection and map updates. These are an integral part of a navigation map. When I purchased Sygic, it was included all of them. Actually Car Play is required an additional purchase for once. Now, it requires a subscription membership. But, I don’t agree to pay for a subscription if I purchased an app. For me, a navigation app must offer all options together and can be priced either one time puchase or subscription only. Once, I was Sygic’s advocate in the past. But, not anymore. Still, I use its offline map feature but very rarely.
I want it to be 5 stars!!
by DelanoRenee on 2021/08/12 13:48
I love this app- I really do but after the last 2 updates, the crashes- while I’m trying to follow the directions! :( it’s happened a few times. When I restart the app after the crash or even just opening the app getting ready to go somewhere, the app won’t load it opens but it’s just blank. I’ll force close and restart and sometimes that helps, sometimes it comes up when it’s ready. I work early mornings and last thing I need it the app not to work while I’m driving on an unfamiliar road at night/early morning. Also the voice promoter cuts off and you can only hear a portion of the directions. Thank you for creating this app!
Not worth the 20 USD high price tag, and the annoyance of the app upselling every additional feature
by KK987955 on 2020/10/06 15:44
Two major issues: - It’s not a good product that’s worth 20 dollars. If you want a good real-time app then go for “Waze” app. If you also want offline map feature, then also add “Here Maps” app from Nokia. But for 20 USD!!, Sygic app just combines these two features into a low quality product. The Sygic app should have been worth maximum 5 USD. - On top of it, the app tries to upsell every additional feature. For e.g. 1) for the „Premium Carplay“ feature for 18 USD extra!, one has to pay again for basic features such as speed limit just for the Carplay. 2) And for 11 USD more!, one can have every month, map updates feature. I have not seen any place in the world where the map changes constantly every month for 12 months straight. The app seems to be constantly ripping off the customer. It is very annoying, when the app has become more of a pure profit-making app than a quality-built app. I think the only solution is to move your business model from a pure profit driven to a more quality driven. Otherwise, with time, there will be a long queue of frustrated customers lining up
Directions need work, can drive me crazy
by stephensafetyharbor on 2019/03/02 13:13
I love the app for the little speed limit notice in the lower right corner. It also shows my speed a I set it to turn red a 5 miles over the speed limit. For this, it would be better if it flashed a couple times as I exceed the 5 MPH over. But my big gripe is the verbal directions are quite stupid. I recently drove along a straight road with one route number for about seven miles. At virtually every intersection with a traffic light a voice told me to continue straight ahead! This happened about 15 times before I shut the voice off! Please fix it. I am Stephen in Safety Harbor Florida and I was traveling to the USF eye Institute in Tampa.
Good when driving, but when walking the voice commands go haywire
by JVP in Silverlake on 2019/02/14 08:38
Generally works as expected, and the downloadable maps are a godsend when driving where cellular or WiFi are not available or affordable. But when I connected earbuds to the iPhone in my pocket and used Sygic to give me directions while walking through Paris, France, the routing and voice commands went haywire, telling me arbitrarily to turn left, right, left, right, left as if I were doing somersaults. I had to turn off the routing and just use it as a plain map. Also, when using GPS my iPhone’s battery drained rapidly; a backup power pack is essential.
HUD doesn’t work like it says it does
by MoGunz22 on 2018/05/14 19:11
I downloaded this because it markets itself as an app that works with a HUD. It’s a separate mirror component that has a mirror and gives you a HUD using a normal phone. All it needs to work is for the phone to project backwards. Think of how something is reflected in a mirror. I paid the $5.99 to unlock this “premium” feature. But it doesn’t give you navigation on the “HUD” display. It just tells you your speed and the speed it shows is wrong. Don’t waste your money. HUD does NOT work on this app. Update: They added a response that says to contact customer service. The app does not work as intended. I have never had to contact customer service for anY app in my life. Especially a navigation app. I downloaded another app with HUD capability. $2.99 and works right away. DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP. IT COSTS MORE THAN THEIR COMPETITION AND DOESN'T WORK. GARBAGE.
Added 1 star for CarPlay support but too little too late.
by no spam for me on 2020/07/03 15:17
I gave this app 1 star before for not supporting CarPlay, terrible routing (including no way to avoid carpool lanes and all ETAs assuming carpool lane use, and in some cases routing me into Carpool-only freeway in ramps, which would have resulted in me breaking the law and giving no alternative routes), and a UI that just never seemed to work right....and of course extra money for frequent updates after charging $60 for the app itself? Nope. Today I’m updating my review and adding 1 star for CarPlay support finally but the terrible routing and glitchy UI still make this app pointless especially since Apple Maps has improved so much. I like the HUD function. Too bad the rest of the app still feels so half-baked.
Had high hopes
by maxvscamera on 2021/05/14 15:44
This navigation app had so many innovative features advertised so it was a no-brainer to give it a shot. $40 dollars in upgrades later and I’m wondering what the heck I’m doing with my life. That’s like 4 Taco Bell meals. The feature that drew me to the app most was the traffic light countdown, for the life of me I can’t get this to work .. pretty certain now that I’m in a region that doesn’t support this data and of course I would’ve like to have known this before purchasing. Also splurged for the Apple Car play upgrade after using it a couple days .. I don’t see any differences. I’ve made a few support to tickets to ask questions but no one has answered me yet.
Lifetime Subscription is Worthless
by kennwin1 on 2021/04/02 01:52
I've used Sygic for years, and years ago purchased a lifetime subscription for world maps and lifetime for Apple Carplay. For some reason, l don't get the premium + offerings, which Sygic wants to charge yearly for. On my old subscription l had all the premium features of traffic and turn by tirn instructions. I also had junction view. They have been removed and for my lifetime subscription l have basic plus option, in my opinion. This is nothing more than a way for Sygic to attempt to get me to ante up $20 a year for something I've already paid for. It's a terrible business practice. Totally disappointed. If you bought the lifetime subscription and expected more, I'm right there with you. Too, bad it doesn't mean what it used to.
Terrible customer service!
by Oly1971 on 2020/07/04 07:21
The mobile speed cameras in-app purchase does not work. All sygic in-app purchases require an ‘activation’ step before start working but this specific in-app cannot be activated in my iphone or ipad regardless my numerous efforts. I contacted repeatedly Sygic support and followed every suggestion they had for this problem to no avail. I requested them to either solve the issue or give me a refund but I haven’t heard from them since. Bear in mind that I bought this in-app 3 times without knowing because I tried repeatedly to ‘activate’ it but it led to an additional purchase of itself each time! (This in-app purchase is valid for a year I was told by sygic). Therefore I ended up paying for a service for 3 years unintentionally and the product doesnt even work!

All licenses gone
by BlueBuell on 2022/01/16 13:16
Upgraded my phone, none of my premium lifetime licenses transferred across. I’d purchase most everything they sell. Contacted customer support, they asked me to send receipts for my purchase, which I did. They then told me how to restore them, followed their instructions - did not restore licenses, so they stopped responding to me after I told them it didn’t work and have not restored anything. So I have nothing I paid for and even though I have proved purchases they have not done anything to remedy the situation. Seriously disappointed. Beware with upgrading, Sygic’s commitment to its customers is paper thin.

Not working, no support, no license
by Ohytos on 2022/01/13 15:08
Lifetime license that I purchased before is not valid anymore despite Sygic saying otherwise, of course everything is subscription now. Urgent support means 3-5 days for them. But anyway they don’t respond for 2-3 weeks. Guidance was usually good, but often sometimes directs you through some back streets that doesn’t make the route faster

Application still showing “Districts” not “Cities”
by itsmedarian on 2022/01/07 23:46
Typing an address or category search presents the location results as part of a district instead of showing the city that a location is in. Here in virtually all United Ststes locations, it is the city that is used and not a district. This impacts the ability for a user to know what city a location is located in. I have reached out to Sygic Support and was promised this was going to be resolved in a future update however months later the error still persists. I like the application but really disappointed in how they are handing this support issue. I’ve been a supporter and paid user of Sygic but perhaps it may be time to look elsewhere.

by JimSpeedy1Dino on 2022/01/06 04:39
I purchased this app about 5 years ago, and purchased the premium package and other options. There was a learning curve to mastering this app, and it did credible job. But there are important fundamental functions that are now extinct, rendering the app useless for navigation beyond giving verbal instruction. And now the biggest issue is the frustration I have with their customer service that has ignored repeated requests regarding legitimate performance failures that were once promised with the Premium +Traffic North America-Lifetime License, Head up display lifetime license, Real View Navigation-Lifetime License, etc. etc. This app no longer has a landscape mode for either Head-Up Display or Real View Navigation. They only way they blue line/arrow within “Real View Navigation” had any value was in landscape mode. I finally grew tired of being ignored every time I addressed this consistent issue through their “give us feedback” venue. I also have the Sygic Travel app, and both have become a waste of money. Since I happened upon the complaints here, I decided to add mine to the heap. I want to see if this addition placed in this forum will stir this recalcitrant Sygic team into enough initiative to respond to me on this forum. I want the “bug fixed” with an update and apology afters years of complaining.
A little annoying
by Len1304 on 2022/01/05 23:31

Nice app but zero help or support I paid for life time North America license and it disappeared I have apple payment receipts but only response is hope you enjoy app. I paid 13.99 now it’s gone only basic with no voice or map updates. Do expect help from them there is none. Looks like they updated app and now want a yearly payment. Look elsewhere so you don’t get lose out too.

The application is still unusable. I don't know what's happening to them with this. It worked perfectly before ios 15, even my favorites were deleted. This message always appears since was update to iOS 15. I have more than 2 months with premium and it does not allow me to create the address to any site. And I’m so frustrated to change every time my favorite voice because app automatically change to synthetic voice always 😤
New subscription version 20.9.4
by Colonel Roy Mustang on 2021/12/23 00:20
Purchased the older none prescription version. With US maps it was $100 US. This version works much better! Easier to get addresses into the app and save them. I like the list of gas stations that comes up on my phone now. Phone is cradled right next to the map display in my ST. Maps and verbal instructions are good. I’m on a iPhone 11 with IOS 15. Apple Maps seems to have more business etc but there are loading problems out in the boonies with Apple Maps. Route won’t calculate if your needed maps are not loaded. So figure out which states you need and load them. I have a long trip from Illinois to southern Ca. Once all the maps I needed where loaded it calculated the route just fine. I’d like to have verbal hands free address capabilities. The builtin GPS in most cars has that but it can be frustrating to use. Further comments to came.

Pretty decent app on my head unit in my car otherwise but lots of little annoying things about it.wouldn’t recommend it.

by Elman1164 on 2021/12/07 20:27
It was the best navigation application I had. Not any more. It stop working after updating to iOS 15. I thought the problem is a device and replaced device but problem still exists. It has huge mapping issues and it wouldn’t find address as previous version did. For example: My work place address is 243 Medford street Malden Massachusetts , but instead of Malden It shows some weird name Bellrock. Bellrock it is name of neighborhood , not the city. If you try Malden it would never find it. I wrote to support tens of times but still didn’t get response when it going to get fixed. Very disappointed, very disappointed.

Not There Yet in North America
by Jar546 on 2021/11/29 17:57
It’s still continues to give me a really weird routes that I don’t have on other map apps. There are times when there are businesses that you could see from the highway yet are on their own street and this app wants me to stop on a highway to access a business rather than going on the road that leads to it. This has a way to go before they can consider charging us for premium which I already paid and regret. The only reason why I am using this is because my Ducati motorcycle only connect to this application, otherwise I use Waze
Company motto: overpromise - under deliver
by LeftyLawdawg on 2021/11/28 19:04
Well if I could give negative stars I would say it’s a -5 star app. I have had this thing for years and continue to be hopeful that it will work someday. The 5 star ratings must be given by the developers and their family as I can find no value in the app. Isuue: app displays a turn arrow and a distance of greater than a couple of miles. Doesn’t give the name of the street on which to turn just says “follow the route”. NOT USEFULE Issue: app cannot find my home address even when I’m there. Says to download the appropriate map data. Hey, you guys supply the map data, make it right. I have reported the address and lat/long coordinates for over 5 years, still can’t find it. Issue: app crashes ALL THE TIME. I have never completed a trip regardless of how short it is without an app crash. Ya gotta do better than that. Issue: app crashes several times during map downloads. They want you to pay a premium to get new maps every month. Why would I want to go through that frustration every month when I can barely stand it every 4 months. Issue: I provide corrections and feedback but all I ever get is a form letter that says when enough folks desire (read demand) the change they’ll consider it. Sorry, I’m just trying to make this thing work the way a map app should work. I can’t believe you don’t really want the input. I could go on about the roundabout navigation loops, directions to turn where there isn’t a road, etc. but that would be like shooting the dog after you kicked it too many times. If you’ve read this far you got game and hopefully enough sense to not waste your time or money. Use apple maps or google maps. If you set your route while you have cell coverage it will navigate to your destination even if you drive out of coverage.

Ducati partnered with the app
by Rick Ayers on 2021/11/28 14:57
But the app doesn’t seem to have partnered with Ducati. I bought a brand new motorcycle in Italy, and it connects directly to my phone to display a map function when navigating. It’s super helpful but the only map application I can use is Sygic. I thought it would be fine, but when I went to look up directions to go back to the dealership for routine maintenance, the map software couldn’t even locate the Ducati dealership in Naples, Rome or anywhere nearby (I bought in Caserta). I had to go to Google to get the coordinates eventually to copy and paste into the app. On a later drive, I had an appointment and the navigation sent me on a new route it said would be faster through an area I didn’t know. It was directing me to go through an area that has been closed for two years and I ended up late to my appointment due to backtracking. To top it all off, I keep getting asked by the app to upgrade to premium when I can use Google maps for free, which overall provides me a better experience. I don’t care for the spam, the bad instructions or lack of a proper search function (other major landmarks are equally difficult to find, regardless of searching in Italian or English thus far). One star

Why have 3D buildings gone?
by RHumphryes on 2021/11/13 18:50
So I bought this app because I wanted the 3D buildings. I bought the premium lifetime. After a map update I got my 3D buildings. However, now it appears that 3D buildings are gone. Also, why do I have to repeatedly re-login to the app???

Money Grabber
by KickMasterPro on 2021/11/12 11:51
I’ve had Sygic for several years now and have really loved your app. Its best feature is being able to download maps and use them offline as many places I go have limited or no cellular service. I like it even though the maps aren’t always correct and one time led my wife to a cow pasture instead of the Hershey park! I’ve always given you a break since your a British company and I’m in the US. Despite these issues, I’ve purchased every lifetime offer they’ve put out. My only issue is that, as of late, you’ve switched their business model to a subscription service instead of allowing your customers to buy your product outright. This is why I dropped my rating by two stars and have switched to mainly using a competing product. The main reason I was attracted to your product, besides the offline maps, is that I could pay once and be done. Your latest add says “you can get a yearly Premium+ license for a special loyalty price”… “Loyalty” they say… I’ve already purchased EVERY product offered to date and THIS is how you reward my loyalty? By changing the rules mid stream? I’m sorry, but I’m not going to play anymore. I’m sure you don’t care about losing just one customer… but I’m placing this review out there to warn all your future customers. Slowly but surely we’re losing more and more of our hard earned income to this type of business model and I for one am not going to participate.

Maps don’t have real time traffic update
by SudhirHebbar on 2021/11/04 02:23
Maps don’t have real time traffic updates as Google/Apple/Waze maps have. Please improve in this area. I have tried offline feature. It works good. We need the app to also remember where I parked when the car is parked so it can guide the user back to parking if needed. Google /Apple/ waze have this feature. Please help incorporate these features in your next release . Update:: Lowering the rating to 1 star. Reason is that I have been giving constant feedback for over 2 months about app crashing when connected to CarPlay and all I get is standard response that reinstall the app. I even did that, but it still crashes. Developers please fix the issue. Also many of locations which you can find on Google, Waze and Apple maps are not shown on this app map. Don’t know what the issues are for not getting proper updates to maps. I have even updated the map when I reinstalled the app. Is this company still working? Or because of COVID-19 they have bundled up , shut down? Totally disappointed with this app .. Update : still the app crashes when you pass through net of freeways crisscross each other . I tried the app in india. It crashes here too.. Ok more update. I was sitting at a location in Palo Alto and searched for the same place in this map and it showed the location is in Ventura and is 70ft from me. Really? Do you think we are fools ? Apple Inc. please help delete this app from app store as this is scam .

CarPlay should include with Premium World 🌎
by Nguyen Texas on 2021/10/29 16:26
I bought the Premium World Lifetime License for backup when traveling overseas, and whenever my phone doesn't have a phone signal. I like this app for almost anything. However, the Premium World Lifetime License should include CARPLAY instead of force user to buy extra every basic function. I would recommend this app for anyone need an onboard map, and willing to give it 5 stars, but since the map useless for Apple CarPlay so I think it deserves 1 star.
Follow the route

Just, “Follow the route.” Reality doesn’t allow me to cross four lanes of freeway traffic when the directions suddenly indicate I should exit now, but showed all four travel lanes were recommended just a moment ago.

Basic Functions Bug-Ridden on iPad Pro
by Disappointed in Va. on 2021/10/19 01:56
I have had Sygic on my iPad for years now, hoping the developer would eventually fix the software issues. It has been to no avail. While new bells and whistles have been added, bugs in the basic functions of the app have not been fixed. I will focus on the two issues that concern me most. The most debilitating issue is with map management. Map updates are highly problematic. The app often crashes during map updates. If a map update is interrupted for any reason, crash or otherwise, the app does not recognize that the update is incomplete. This means you can never finish the update. In the past I got around this by deleting all my maps and re-installing them. However, in the latest version of the app, I am unable to delete maps at all after a botched map update. Therefore, the maps remain in a state of limbo. My second major issue is with the Favorites list. It is impossible to delete a location from the Favorites list – if you open the Edit window, select a site to be deleted, press Delete, nothing happens. I get the distinct impression that the IOS version of this app is not high on the developer’s priority list. Otherwise, why would such basic functions still be glitchy after so many app updates over a period of years. I have paid a significant price for this app and its add-ons. I expect solid, reliable software for my investment.
It finds bad routes
by esprit85 on 2021/10/18 01:56

Sygic is limiting itself
by Ayomury on 2021/10/16 17:38
I am using Sygic for about ten years. But, my usage was decreased because of their money trap approach. For example, car play connection and map updates. These are an integral part of a navigation map. When I purchased Sygic, it was included all of them. Actually Car Play is required an additional purchase for once. Now, it requires a subscription membership. But, I don’t agree to pay for a subscription if I purchased an app. For me, a navigation app must offer all options together and can be priced either one time puchase or subscription only. Once, I was Sygic’s advocate in the past. But, not anymore. Still, I use its offline map feature but very rarely.

Unable to switch from android to Apple
by Nav00703 on 2021/10/13 17:47
I purchased a sygic premium package on android and then I lost my phone and decided to switch to Apple. But realized they don’t allow you to switch from android to Apple, so unless you decide to be on the same platform it is pointless to purchase it. The whole idea of paying for a 3rd party app is it is linked to your email id and not to the underlying OS.

Missing so many search locations
by rps2020 on 2021/09/28 14:08
First, I’ve had this app for years in the US. Maybe it works better in other parts of the world, but here it’s terrible. It can’t find my local Jaguar dealership that less than 15 miles away. That’s just one example, but there are many more. The other reason for one star is the continuing need to purchase subscriptions. I’ve purchased Basic World- Lifetime License, Premium + Traffic N. America Lifetime and Realview Navigation. Even with all those purchases, they want me to pay for Premium Plus to use CarPlay. They want me to pay again for an inferior product. When will it stop? With Waze, Apple Maps and Google Maps being free, this seems like a ripoff.
Not good enough
by PaHiker on 2021/09/25 22:10
Admittedly I have only been using this for a short time, but since the free trial period is almost over I believe I’ve had enough experience to know that I don’t want to pay for the full version. I use the app via CarPlay in my RAV4 since it enables me to use other apps as well. The problem with Sygic and CarPlay is that the app is always in Dark mode, no matter the time of day, and even when other apps are running in Light mode. Side roads are hard enough to see in Dark mode at night, during the day time it is near impossible. The area I live in is mountainous, because of this cellular tower connections aren’t always reliable. This happened during one trip causing the app to lose track of where I was. The other problem is that when I was back into cellular range the app never recognized it, and so didn’t re-establish navigation. Sygic claims this is a GPS navigation app, but it is not. It requires strong cellular connection to function properly. This is great if you happen to live in Cupertino, but in the real world there are just too many places where cellular service either isn’t strong or just doesn’t exist. Traveling cross-country several times a year I need something that is truly reliable, Sygic isn’t it.

This app saved my life on a recent trip to Iceland! We expected our rental car to have built in navigation or a GPS system but it didn’t come equipped with either. We couldn’t access google maps internationally without wifi, and we were driving all around the country, so I downloaded this app and truly don’t know how we would have gotten around without it. Super accurate and helpful!
Don’t be fooled
by Ybasteve on 2021/09/14 21:13
I am not satisfied with this app. You would think that the display would mirror the CarPlay screen, nope! The pop up lane screen that tells you what lane to be in to turn doesn’t appear on the car play dash screen, but only appears on the phone app screen. This was the whole reason for buying this app! The developers need to show up pictures of the CarPlay screen so that buyers don’t think they are going to get the same display as the phone app. Very disappointed!

I Want to Love It, but . . .
by ralphwaldo on 2021/08/24 21:20
This is a great-looking app, and I really like that you can download maps for offline use. And the other cool functions seem awesome. But the problems I’ve run into so far will keep me from using Sygic to replace my current driving app. The first problem is that my place of work doesn’t show up when I search for it (it’s a high school, and a big one at that.) I had to go to the map, find the school (it was listed by name there), and drop a pin on it. After reading another review with the same issue it seems like it might be somewhat of a thing with this app. The second problem I’ve noticed is that as I’m currently trying to use the app the GPS is placing me about a mile north of where I actually am. That doesn’t bode well for navigation accuracy. Also, the map I downloaded for my state is not up-to-date. One of the main roads I take to work isn’t listed. It’s a more recent road, but it’s been there long enough that I’d expect it to have been added at this point (the road was completed about 2 months ago.) I hope they get things fixed, because I really do want to love this app.

Poor Navigation
by 304dwd on 2021/08/21 15:43
The voice prompts can be confusing, sometimes repeating the instructions twice in a row and other times not. Frequently got conflicting information such as advance instructions at the next intersection to turn left , and then the next prompt would be to turn right. The exit information, while on the interstate, comes way too late, you are more than half way past the exit ramp and it says take exit in 200 feet.... worthless.
Needs work
by GrimReaper25 on 2021/08/15 18:02
I tried this GPS navigation software about a year ago.I loaded it up again today after a year they should’ve been major improvements to the software. If you drive a car it’s not too bad but if you drive a tractor trailer it leaves much to be desired. Instead of listing truckstops the way it supposed to for trucks when you have the truck profile loaded it lists gas stations that trucks cannot get into. There are a few other things that need improvement and I pointed this out to Sygic A year ago and they’re all still the same problems. I see that he has come down in the price of the software quite considerably. All I can say is purchase at your own risk. I offered a year ago to help this person make his software better by using it and pointing out where are the floors were. The only problem is I was not going to pay for software while I was helping him correct the problem. As a truck driver in the United States I could’ve helped him extensively but he refused the help.
Worthless with Ford Sync 3

“Waiting for device” every time. Reinstalled, current with Ford updates. Etc. No reply from Sygic support after two weeks.
Getting Dumber Every Release
by iKanakaberaka on 2021/08/13 13:15
I’m a premium user. Bought Sygic for a few specific features and they’ve removed them with updates: 3D view - nope. Standalone GPS have a view that gives you about 45deg Birdseye view, some even to the horizon. Great for getting your bearings. Sygic did this. Now it don’t. ‘But you can tilt the view’. From straight down to just nearly straight down Buttons that press themselves- wow. Talk about Nanny app. When you zoom out, the “Recenter” button gives itself a little timer bar, counts down, and then presses itself. Because the app knows you don’t want to see that view, and if you do, your wrong. Oh so you can just go into settings and change the sett.. oh they don’t have any of those in settings? .. oh. OK. I’d go back to the first version I bought ( bought ) in a heartbeat. But Apple says that’s not possible.
I want it to be 5 stars!!
by DelanoRenee on 2021/08/12 13:48
I love this app- I really do but after the last 2 updates, the crashes- while I’m trying to follow the directions! :( it’s happened a few times. When I restart the app after the crash or even just opening the app getting ready to go somewhere, the app won’t load it opens but it’s just blank. I’ll force close and restart and sometimes that helps, sometimes it comes up when it’s ready. I work early mornings and last thing I need it the app not to work while I’m driving on an unfamiliar road at night/early morning. Also the voice promoter cuts off and you can only hear a portion of the directions. Thank you for creating this app!

Disappointed
by TXNative on 2021/08/03 00:25
I downloaded this app to use for navigation with my Sync 3.0 system in my 2017 Ford F-150. Sync recognized the app was there, but that’s all. No matter what I tried it would never actually show the Sygic app working. Sync just displayed, “Connecting to device,” and that was it. I even restarted my phone and reset Sync. Very frustrating.
Support response
by Tinupen1 on 2021/07/31 01:18
I am writing this with regret having bought this app. But now to the facts. Support is unresponsive; just getting an automated reply every time I submit an issue. Would be nice someone would actually respond to the issues submitted. Here are some of the issues which I reported. App crashes frequently while driving. Doesn’t find a lot of addresses anymore; even do maps are updated. I recommend not buying this app. I wished I could have written a better review. Updates of 07/24/2021: I thought in my prior message that the company would acknowledge their failures or mishaps and try to improve the app. As of this writing, nobody followed up on any issues I reported. The app still crashes, which is very dangerous for any driver to restart the app while concentrating on the traffic; which in my mind, makes it very dangerous to use the app. I do wish Apple would have a thorough app review for apps submitted to the App Store. Some of the developers surely wouldn’t be able to post any of their apps and people would have to deal with such a messy up and possible put their life’s in danger. I wrote this follow up in the hope something gets resolved; after all, people paid real money for it. Shame on you!

Unable to locate addresses 4 out of 5 times!
by spacetimefoam on 2021/07/30 16:01
This is really ridiculous; unable to locate address accurately. Fails really most of the time. Sorry to say but, Evil Google does at least locate addresses without fail. I wanted this to work, so I can avoid Evil Google, but have given up….
Update to previous 1-star rating
by Clpritch on 2019/08/04 13:48
New Review: I love the graphics and Lane prompts in this app. Development team is prompt about responding and they’ve fixed a lot of issues that made the app hard to use. Landmarks and locations now are searchable. Yesterday the app was nimble enough to find the best route through an Interstate closure with traffic slowed to a stop AND multiple road closures in downtown. Never encountered stopped traffic on the drive using Sygic. It takes a little getting used to but well worth it. First review: This app has very few landmarks loaded into its databases. You must Google a landmark then put the address into Sygic in order to navigate. Love the graphics but I’ve never found a single location in the app by name, including libraries and schools. Not worth the money. Company offered to enter each one I report but would not refund the purchase until they have more appropriate map and search capabilities.
Disappointed
by Subxxero on 2018/10/11 00:44
Downloaded this app months ago but only used it once or twice because the search bar was horrible. I was using Google Maps and I never had issues finding places near me. This app seems to expect you to know the full address of where your going. You can’t just type in the name of a restaurant. This is just frustrating. A few days ago, I decided to give the app one more chance because I liked the idea of the augmented reality feature ( which I paid for). I tried it for the first time today and it was a total let down. The idea is awesome but it’s hard to tell where your next turn is. The AR screen tells your speed and distance but there are no cues to warn you about exits, turns, NADA! Nothing! I missed my exit because the sound was turned down and you simply can’t see the turns in AR mode. I’m going to triple check that I didn’t miss a setting somewhere because I really want this to work. If not... I’m going to request a refund. UPDATE: still no sound! Then when you get online to try and contact the seller, they just send you in circles. There is no clear way to request a refund. I’m sure I can call itunes but why not make it easy? BECAUSE YOU DONT WANT TO GIVE $$ BACK FOR A POOR APP! Sometimes customer service is what makes or breaks your company...hiding your non existent service Dept behind links that send you in frustrating circles. I WILL BE TRYING TO CONTACT SOMEONE to try and get my money back.
Still frustrating!
by Histnrd on 2018/08/04 18:16
Update:the search function has greatly improved, but now the directions leave much to be desired. I have noticed that the map shows all lanes of a highway are fine, only to find that it tells me it is time to turn less than 1000 feet from the exit, sometimes it finally tells me I am turning right when the exit only lane appears. Also, on my last trip it kept telling me to get into the carpool lane so it showed me turning, every mile or two; this made it impossible to know when my real turn would be. It would be nice to get more specific info about future turns too. Finally, why is the info bar at top sometimes blue and sometimes green? I am sure there is a reason but haven’t figured it out yet. At this point I only use Sygic when I am in areas with no cell signal, otherwise I use Apple maps. I used to love Sygic and keep hoping they will finally work out all the bugs. If I can get the program to understand where I am going, it is top notch, but actually getting it to recognize an address or find a location is frustrating at best and an utter failure at worse. At one point you could share an address from Apple maps and that was great but then it was removed, by Apple or Sygic I have no idea, but pretty much an epic failure now most of the time. As I do like the maps, once I have gone someplace I mark the location so I can find it again.

by JimSpeedy1Dino on 2022/01/06 04:39
I purchased this app about 5 years ago, and purchased the premium package and other options. There was a learning curve to mastering this app, and it did credible job. But there are important fundamental functions that are now extinct, rendering the app useless for navigation beyond giving verbal instruction. And now the biggest issue is the frustration I have with their customer service that has ignored repeated requests regarding legitimate performance failures that were once promised with the Premium +Traffic North America-Lifetime License, Head up display lifetime license, Real View Navigation-Lifetime License, etc. etc. This app no longer has a landscape mode for either Head-Up Display or Real View Navigation. They only way they blue line/arrow within “Real View Navigation” had any value was in landscape mode. I finally grew tired of being ignored every time I addressed this consistent issue through their “give us feedback” venue. I also have the Sygic Travel app, and both have become a waste of money. Since I happened upon the complaints here, I decided to add mine to the heap. I want to see if this addition placed in this forum will stir this recalcitrant Sygic team into enough initiative to respond to me on this forum. I want the “bug fixed” with an update and apology afters years of complaining.
Good maps. Poor navigation
by LifeInLoFi on 2019/08/22 04:44
The maps are good but not the best. The off-line maps and navigation increase their value, however. The turn by turn directions has some good features including speed camera warnings. The navigation needs a lot of improvement and can be confusing and possibly dangerous if you don’t know the route. Directions are often vague and confusing, and sometimes even incorrect. While driving on a highway, the directions often do not give exit names so you don’t know which road you exit on. They often told me to turn where there are no turns. Directions tell you to simply “turn left” instead of “turn left to merge onto the highway”. And the directions missed the Walmart 5 miles from my house located in the the middle of a major US city, instead directing me to the back of the strip center one block away from the Walmart. I bought the heads up display option which is a good feature — basic but well done. But it’s useless if the rest of the app is going to get me lost along the way. For turn by turn directions, the two major iOS map apps are much more accurate and easier to follow.
Ducati partnered with the app
by Rick Ayers on 2021/11/28 14:57
But the app doesn’t seem to have partnered with Ducati. I bought a brand new motorcycle in Italy, and it connects directly to my phone to display a map function when navigating. It’s super helpful but the only map application I can use is Sygic. I thought it would be fine, but when I went to look up directions to go back to the dealership for routine maintenance, the map software couldn’t even locate the Ducati dealership in Naples, Rome or anywhere nearby (I bought in Caserta). I had to go to Google to get the coordinates eventually to copy and paste into the app. On a later drive, I had an appointment and the navigation sent me on a new route it said would be faster through an area I didn’t know. It was directing me to go through an area that has been closed for two years and I ended up late to my appointment due to backtracking. To top it all off, I keep getting asked by the app to upgrade to premium when I can use Google maps for free, which overall provides me a better experience. I don’t care for the spam, the bad instructions or lack of a proper search function (other major landmarks are equally difficult to find, regardless of searching in Italian or English thus far). One star
Good overall
by %*#%^*+!!! on 2018/07/10 22:44
Nice app, It takes a while to get the hang of it as the blue lines at the beginning confused me to whether avoid or stick to these. Volume was down though and it all made sense when I heard and saw the instruction. Would suggest to change to green colour though as green is always “go this way”. I travel a lot to different places and I bought the world unlimited version. I’ve just tried it in Spain where in Madrid worked pretty nicely, the only problem was when inside a tunnel with junctions in it as these are not shown (I reckon due to loss of GPS signal) but the commands need a bit of improvement to get in the correct lane. Between Oliva (Valencia) back to Madrid, the app got lost four different times showing junctions that didn’t exist and erroneous turns when is not even possible. The way is very straight forward, very much a motorway where there is only one time at which you need to make a slight turn to move onto another motorway (Barcelona or Madrid). I just ignored the spurious commands but this definitely needs to be looked into as may cause confusion. Once the turn commands were ignored the display reverts back to normal. Also, a heard quite a few times “slight turn” when it was a nearly 90 degree turn. All the best and keep updating and correcting these minor bugs. It’s definitely a worth to have app
Useless now
by Beighn on 2020/04/01 11:53
This was a great app when I purchased it a year ago but greed has corrupted it since. Ever since they started the map subscription towards the middle to end of last year the software is full of bugs. It will no longer give you the fastest route and will give you a route that is 1-3 hours longer. Will not reroute it’s directions. Crashes at least twice each 2 1/2 hour trip. Maps are still incomplete such as 3D building feature. Incorrect info on maps such as street names. And the dash cam plugin is the most frustrating bugfest. The dash cam will only record for a certain amount of time and when you go to start a new recording it will over write your last recording. Customer service will not actually read any bug reports you send them and reply with a canned email that doesn’t actually address the bug reported and try to up sell more of their plug ins. The core software has bugs that are overlooked while they focus on adding more pay-to-use features that have their own bugs. It’s just a cash grab now with little tech support and broken features.
Doesn’t need mobile data connection! Great everywhere.
by Bobshoe1 on 2018/11/24 04:35
We used Sygic for two years touring the western USA in a Sprinter Van type RV. Other than downloading maps, it does not need cell data for navigation. Even in the desert where there was no cellphone reception, and therefore no Google or Apple maps, Sygic never failed us. The app keeps getting better and better with updates and features like head up navigation on your windshield — which is so helpful driving at night. Much better than a Garmin or Rand McNally dedicated GPS. On the iPads you get an amazing large navigation screen, unlike a small GPS screen. The small lifetime payment gives me Sygic on my iPhone, iPad and iPad Mini. This is one of the top ten apps of any kind I’ve ever used.
New subscription version 20.9.4
by Colonel Roy Mustang on 2021/12/23 00:20
Purchased the older none prescription version. With US maps it was $100 US. This version works much better! Easier to get addresses into the app and save them. I like the list of gas stations that comes up on my phone now. Phone is cradled right next to the map display in my ST. Maps and verbal instructions are good. I’m on a iPhone 11 with IOS 15. Apple Maps seems to have more business etc but there are loading problems out in the boonies with Apple Maps. Route won’t calculate if your needed maps are not loaded. So figure out which states you need and load them. I have a long trip from Illinois to southern Ca. Once all the maps I needed where loaded it calculated the route just fine. I’d like to have verbal hands free address capabilities. The builtin GPS in most cars has that but it can be frustrating to use. Further comments to came.
Money Grabber
by KickMasterPro on 2021/11/12 11:51
I’ve had Sygic for several years now and have really loved your app. Its best feature is being able to download maps and use them offline as many places I go have limited or no cellular service. I like it even though the maps aren’t always correct and one time led my wife to a cow pasture instead of the Hershey park! I’ve always given you a break since your a British company and I’m in the US. Despite these issues, I’ve purchased every lifetime offer they’ve put out. My only issue is that, as of late, you’ve switched their business model to a subscription service instead of allowing your customers to buy your product outright. This is why I dropped my rating by two stars and have switched to mainly using a competing product. The main reason I was attracted to your product, besides the offline maps, is that I could pay once and be done. Your latest add says “you can get a yearly Premium+ license for a special loyalty price”… “Loyalty” they say… I’ve already purchased EVERY product offered to date and THIS is how you reward my loyalty? By changing the rules mid stream? I’m sorry, but I’m not going to play anymore. I’m sure you don’t care about losing just one customer… but I’m placing this review out there to warn all your future customers. Slowly but surely we’re losing more and more of our hard earned income to this type of business model and I for one am not going to participate.
Poor Directions
by FM-Pros on 2020/07/29 14:03
I got this because I was going to be traveling in the western U.S. and knew I would have sparse internet connectivity with my phone and tablet. However, when I put in a destination and asked for directions, it gave me a 155 mile 2:51 minute route, which I knew was wrong. Fortunately, I had WiFi at my hotel and was able to produce the correct route in Apple Maps: 43 miles and 1 hour. As it turned out, the mis-routing was a result of the fact that the shortest route sent me across the border of another state for a couple of miles, and I hadn’t downloaded that state’s map. But rather than inform me that I needed to download another map, I got a route that was three times as long. Not great. Also, when navigating, if a road changes its name, the app instructs me to “turn right”, when I really need to go straight. This means that I have to look at the app and cannot rely on audio cues alone while driving - also not great.
Basic Functions Bug-Ridden on iPad Pro
by Disappointed in Va. on 2021/10/19 01:56
I have had Sygic on my iPad for years now, hoping the developer would eventually fix the software issues. It has been to no avail. While new bells and whistles have been added, bugs in the basic functions of the app have not been fixed. I will focus on the two issues that concern me most. The most debilitating issue is with map management. Map updates are highly problematic. The app often crashes during map updates. If a map update is interrupted for any reason, crash or otherwise, the app does not recognize that the update is incomplete. This means you can never finish the update. In the past I got around this by deleting all my maps and re-installing them. However, in the latest version of the app, I am unable to delete maps at all after a botched map update. Therefore, the maps remain in a state of limbo. My second major issue is with the Favorites list. It is impossible to delete a location from the Favorites list – if you open the Edit window, select a site to be deleted, press Delete, nothing happens. I get the distinct impression that the IOS version of this app is not high on the developer’s priority list. Otherwise, why would such basic functions still be glitchy after so many app updates over a period of years. I have paid a significant price for this app and its add-ons. I expect solid, reliable software for my investment.
Maps don’t have real time traffic update
by SudhirHebbar on 2021/11/04 02:23
Maps don’t have real time traffic updates as Google/Apple/Waze maps have. Please improve in this area. I have tried offline feature. It works good. We need the app to also remember where I parked when the car is parked so it can guide the user back to parking if needed. Google /Apple/ waze have this feature. Please help incorporate these features in your next release . Update:: Lowering the rating to 1 star. Reason is that I have been giving constant feedback for over 2 months about app crashing when connected to CarPlay and all I get is standard response that reinstall the app. I even did that, but it still crashes. Developers please fix the issue. Also many of locations which you can find on Google, Waze and Apple maps are not shown on this app map. Don’t know what the issues are for not getting proper updates to maps. I have even updated the map when I reinstalled the app. Is this company still working? Or because of COVID-19 they have bundled up , shut down? Totally disappointed with this app .. Update : still the app crashes when you pass through net of freeways crisscross each other . I tried the app in india. It crashes here too.. Ok more update. I was sitting at a location in Palo Alto and searched for the same place in this map and it showed the location is in Ventura and is 70ft from me. Really? Do you think we are fools ? Apple Inc. please help delete this app from app store as this is scam .

Not worth the money
by Brendan the deer on 2018/09/17 20:22
Laughably poor navigation, but the joke’s on me because I was foolish enough to buy the premium version. Directions are often wrong - with obvious inaccuracies that would take us well out of our way if followed, or had us leaving highways only to be told to circle back and renter them. When I ignored incorrect directions, the map acted as though I hadn’t and remained centered on roads I was not on for up to 30 seconds after which it had difficulty plotting a new course for several minutes. Maps themselves appear be be based on old data and graphics look dated. Lane assist a nuisance as it pops up seemingly randomly. Buggy spoken directions failed to name many streets, stuttered, repeated itself frequently, and hilariously used wrong units with alerts like “speed camera in 1000 miles.” Unsure where they are getting their traffic data but it is not even close to real time. Also unsure where their five star reviews are coming from. Wouldn’t be a real issue if this app weren’t so expensive.
Not quite ready
by Flamewinger on 2021/07/05 14:55
The latest update causes the screen to freeze when using it in vehicle dash. Fix it and stop changing things! I paid for Sygic Car Nav when it was out. When Sygic GPS Nav came out I bought the individual components and in Aug. I will have to pay a yearly subscription. Don’t think I will. Maybe, when it settles down and stops changing fee structure and the way it works, I might check it out. Earlier problems - I use this in BRP Connect which is a smartphone integration to a motorcycle dash. The most current problem is after a short while Sygic goes silent. The only way to get the sound directions back is to stop and restart everything. So many hiccups in using another navigation app. Map colors are limited. Announcements are quirky. When using it in a vehicle dash the route you set up on the phone disappears when you open it in the dash. Time consuming have to set up again.
Junk App for Navigation
by ZomB667 on 2017/09/23 16:18
This app is junk compared to Maps, google maps etc. Lies about lane preview but I’ll I’ve seen is a window with a with a picture of what’s supposed to be a road and just two blue “lanes” and this pops up randomly, Horrible navigation, at least in LA county, tells you to go the opposite way of destination sometimes and tells you to go one way then changes at the last min, also if your going to be driving in the same direction for a mile or longer all it tells you is follow directions and doesn’t preview what to look for next till its almost late, had to switch to maps to get actual directions and and a direction and street name to look for. Had this app open while my gf had maps on this was giving a completely different direction that would make me want to make a u turn or jump on the freeway while were close to my destination but not too sure of getting there. Don’t buy this app its your better off using a different navigation app
Pay to CarPlay.. pay pay pay..
by David O in Tacoma on 2019/01/04 15:54
There’s great features in this product. I love the stop light camera warnings, I love that it warns you if you’re going over the posted speed limit in an area. The traffic updates are far better than competing products or the built in iOS app. There are some quirks: speed limit zone aren’t accurate in my area - sometimes being off by as much as 15 MPH and there are weird artifacts like my next door neighbor’s house being listed as a restaurant(it’s not). Also - everything is an upgrade or a “premium feature”. Some things I can see why: Their real time dash cam is an upgrade - ok that’s fair. Their real view AR navigation is an upgrade - ok. I can see that too. Map updates for life? Painful but at the moment cheaper than competitors. But CARPLAY SUPPORT IS A PAID ADDON? Really? That’s just gouging people. Either offer support or don’t.
IT CRASHES
by T0x15e on 2020/03/07 17:59
Constantly crashes for me. During my last trip it did it 3 times. Every time it does you have to restart it, confirm that you're still on the same route, and wait for it to do whatever it does for several seconds before it goes back to giving directions. This is completely unacceptable and has not been addressed in any of the many updates this app has received... But they sure do like to add paid add-ons like HUDs and dashcams! And that's not even getting into the shady map update practices. Not even a month after I paid for a lifetime subscription to updates and traffic, they added a new super-duper premium map update option that gets you monthly map updates instead of quarterly... Except sometimes months get skipped and the maps are still out of date. I just can't trust it anymore. I'm canceling whatever subscriptions I have with Sygic and deleting the app. Enough is enough.
Professional and Powerful GPS
by WALTERCOM on 2019/06/04 17:02
GPS for automobiles is serious, very serious thing. Nowadays, erring the route is always a sign of lost time, unnecessary spending and nervousness.

Avoid this App if You Can!
by AJ Mac on 2021/07/08 16:33
No separate between land and water. All the same color. Major towns and cities cannot be seen unless you zoom in very close. V18.8.6 had a superior graphical interface. Update: Resolved most land and water GI issues by deleting and reinstalling app. The map still needs better road contrast. Colors between land and roads too subtle along backroads. Looks like this is moving to a subscription base app. I will pay for an upgrade if it’s worth it and not a subscription for mediocre updates. Time to start looking for a replacement to this app. 9 updates to version 20 and everyone has the same description. No mention of what was addressed in the updates. This is lazy. Are you fixing the app or what? OMG This app keeps getting worse. It now defaults to the robotic TTY voice when you don’t have internet connection no matter what other voice you had selected. This app is now officially a train wreck.
Not what I paid for
by rfplanner on 2018/10/28 02:20
I have just driven from El Salvador to the US border. This program has taken me to parts of Puebla and San Luis Potosí that I would not recommend anyone traveling to. The routing algorithm is flawed, or the maps are not up to date. In Mexico, where I was advised that they had up to date information, there are hundreds of petroleum stations not in the database. I have not been able to find hotels that have been built for at least five years. Just this morning I wanted to leave San Luis Potosí for Monclova and even though I could see the correct road in front of me, just 20m away, the program tried to route me down backstreets that were not in any way main highways. I drove to the highway and the program continued to try to route me elsewhere. It’s flawed, no doubt in my mind. I ended up having to use Waze to find my way correctly. Waze knew every point I put in. It found all the hotels I wanted to stay at. Also, the color scheme for the day is absolute rubbish, it can not be changed, and it’s almost impossible to see roads around a route. Want to try to divert to a different route? Forget it. Once the program runs its impossible to try to look for an alternative to avoid accidents or roadworks etc. In short, it’s a flawed product.
Crashes constantly …
by ArnellTheBlaster on 2020/03/08 16:47
Update: App has been stable for the last few days with no app update. This makes me think the issue was in the backend when it was calling home (traffic updates etc). Going on a trip to test. Finger crossed (which is not something I should be thinking of). This version or combination of iOS causes this app to crash constantly. I have been unable to keep this running while driving and driving/navigating. (Will not stay active for more than 10 minutes before crashing). It will crash and go to the home screen. I have deleted and reinstalled the app, including the maps, but have the same issue. For me, the app is unusable. Went back to an older unsupported nav app and it seems to work fine on the latest version of iOS.
Not good enough
by PaHiker on 2021/09/25 22:10
Admittedly I have only been using this for a short time, but since the free trial period is almost over I believe I’ve had enough experience to know that I don’t want to pay for the full version. I use the app via CarPlay in my RAV4 since it enables me to use other apps as well. The problem with Sygic and CarPlay is that the app is always in Dark mode, no matter the time of day, and even when other apps are running in Light mode. Side roads are hard enough to see in Dark mode at night, during the day time it is near impossible. The area I live in is mountainous, because of this cellular tower connections aren’t always reliable. This happened during one trip causing the app to lose track of where I was. The other problem is that when I was back into cellular range the app never recognized it, and so didn’t re-establish navigation. Sygic claims this is a GPS navigation app, but it is not. It requires strong cellular connection to function properly. This is great if you happen to live in Cupertino, but in the real world there are just too many places where cellular service either isn’t strong or just doesn’t exist. Traveling cross-country several times a year I need something that is truly reliable, Sygic isn’t it.
Perplexed No-Confidence Disappointed
by Another MusicMan on 2021/04/16 04:33
Still trying to understand why the 5 star ratings. Long list of perceived negatives - seems to frequently crash, treats every curve in a road as if it’s a new road, distance notifiction to turns are inconsistent, highway exit and some toll notifications are are non existent, some cameras are not identified,, the user interface is confusing, settings options are extensive but excludes others, graphics are significantly lagging behind most others, no satellite images, and it is constantly checking-in on the phone - quite irritating while talking on the phone. A nit-pick, arrow representing car is always pointing north (not direction car is driving). Dumb me, I trusted the reviews and immediately paid for voice guidance etc., which utilizes a single robotic voice (desp ite trying all voices ) Net/net i have little confidence in its accuracy/providing safe routes —- Very disappointed.
Just purchased many of the apps!
by VOFITZ on 2019/04/26 17:44
So far so good. Am giving 5 Stars and will be updating my thoughts after using each one and getting a feeling of the functionality of each. I have paid for every other app and am Hopi g this one will prove to the best one over time. Update: 1. Ability to reach customer service and no where on site map can I locate a customer service link for assistance. 2. I have been a long time customer and user of Sygic and have always been disappointed with the lack of customer service and also unable to find workarounds for iOS application issues. 3. Sygic does not recognize past purchases, such as my dash cam and front display (app for night driving). In other words, Both in the sygic website and App Store I am being ask to pay for a service that I already paid for months and even years back. Sygic has to step it up making it easier to reach customer service which is now nonexistent to be frank. As a longtime customer, I do hope that Sygic puts more time in assisting customers either by email or better yet an 800 number to confer with a live Sygic CS Representative. I hope someone from Sygic reads this below satisfactory rating and reach out to me being that it may be the only way to get in contact with someone
The worst and most expensive GPS app
by K0F13 on 2017/09/03 11:02
The crew cares about taking your money but not to fix this broken app. You put so much money into it and yet this app useless. Very pricey too. I thought this would be better than Waze but it's a complete garbage. Customer service is horrible. It's takes almost a month for customer service to contact you and when they do, they can't even help you with your issues. At least Waze is free and dependable and reliable (does not crash). Making an address or POI search in like impossible. It does not even come up and it's constantly crashing. Stay away from this over priced garbage GPS app. DO NOT LET THE NICE INTERFACE FOOL YOU!!!. It's all for the money but not about fixing this app. They also use very old maps. The arrow on the map course falls off the map and then rotates in confusion. THAT RIGHT THERE IS AN EXTREME HAZARD THAT COULD CAUSE AN ACCIDENT. Stay away from this app until they take the initiative to fix this app.
A disappointing “Follow the Route”
by Jefrox77 on 2018/03/22 08:50
the “follow the route” is very annoying, you will not know your next turn till the last minute or 1-2 miles before it tells you the name of the exit of your next turn. In this case its very hard to prepare your next route or especially if someone will ask you whats your next turn? Because it doesn’t show up on your screen constantly. This is my only problem with this app and its very annoying. AGAIN VERY ANNOYING “FOLLOW THE ROUTE” instead of showing the name of your next turn!!!!! So im deleting this app till they will fix it😡 i paid premium and i say what a waste....
Angry Carplay Customer
by mecagueencima on 2019/01/26 12:45
This would have been a 5 star review. Let me start off by saying that this was the ONLY app I used for GPS. I loved it better than Google Maps, Apple Maps, WAZE, if there was a GPS app—I tried it. It’s an amazing app with really great features that you would get on an extremely fancy GPS unit (TOMTOM,Garmin, etc). I did pay to have accessibility to all of North America and some of the other add-ons you can purchase. I honestly didn’t mind paying the $20+ fee for all maps because of the offline map capability and the $5+ fee for the add-ons because the heads-up display is pretty cool. My frustration set in when Sygic was finally compatible with Carplay. I received a notification that it was finally available. I open the app, connect my phone and saw LIMITED CAPABILITY. I opened the app to see if I was doing something wrong when I saw the $35 fee to get full access on Carpay. You mean to tell me I am probably going to end up paying $60+ for a GPS app? It’s pretty messed up for this company to charge its already paid users a pretty hefty fee to have full access to a screen mirroring image on my dashboard. Thanks, but no thanks Sygic. You just lost me. If you make the fee $5 like your other add-ons, then sure. Although it really should just be included.
I Want to Love It, but . . .
by ralphwaldo on 2021/08/24 21:20
This is a great-looking app, and I really like that you can download maps for offline use. And the other cool functions seem awesome. But the problems I’ve run into so far will keep me from using Sygic to replace my current driving app. The first problem is that my place of work doesn’t show up when I search for it (it’s a high school, and a big one at that.) I had to go to the map, find the school (it was listed by name there), and drop a pin on it. After reading another review with the same issue it seems like it might be somewhat of a thing with this app. The second problem I’ve noticed is that as I’m currently trying to use the app the GPS is placing me about a mile north of where I actually am. That doesn’t bode well for navigation accuracy. Also, the map I downloaded for my state is not up-to-date. One of the main roads I take to work isn’t listed. It’s a more recent road, but it’s been there long enough that I’d expect it to have been added at this point (the road was completed about 2 months ago.) I hope they get things fixed, because I really do want to love this app.
Some good, some bad
by PopKornman on 2017/08/05 12:53
This app is great for those that want a truly offline map option and the lane assist is great....in theory. What I don't like is the fact that it waits until under 2 miles to tell you which exit you're looking for, which doesn't give you enough time to get over on some interstates. And quick interchanges are very confusing. I'm talking about those interstate exits that split into multiple lanes for different roads. This app doesn't give me enough information to get into the right lane fast enough. The only way to help this is to make sure you have the sound turned up because the voice seems to give you a bit more information. However, I prefer to drive with voice off.
Downloaded for Use with CarPlay
by edzmusic on 2019/06/15 00:51
Disappointed. I was looking for a solid, offline backup to Apple Maps for use with CarPlay. Apple Maps is great, but when you are in a low signal area, it can’t re-route you should you need to go off-route. Three issues with Sygic’s app made it a no-go for use with CarPlay: 1. the app, while using CarPlay, had trouble keeping my vehicle centered on the display, while constantly turning the map so you cannot see what the route and upcoming turns are going to be - seemed like it was having trouble locking onto GPS; 2. the voice navigation instructions were robotic and SLOW - not late in announcing, just spoken slowly; 3. the app crashed twice while navigating. I gave up and switched back Apple Maps. By the way, I tried TomTom’s app for CarPlay and it was not much better. If only Apple Maps had an offline mode.
Almost there
by Jerry7709 on 2017/08/21 22:27
This is one of the better GPS app outside of Apple Maps. I love the number of lanes it shows while drive and which lane to stay in before exiting the highway. The required speed limit for the road has been accurate and the navigation has been accepted. My disappointment has been in how slow it responds to redirecting when a turn is missed or when it suggests a faster route. You can drive another 10 yards before it catches up with you to get you back on track. This almost a deal breaker and hope the next update addresses this critical issue. Also, it has trouble locating me when sitting in my driveway and i'm ready to goto my destination. It doesn't locate until I begins driving so I'm not sure if I have to make a left or right when I leave. Another problem I've found is that when it's time to exit it doesn't show or announce the exit until around a mile until it's time to exit. This is way too late while you are in rush hour or unfamiliar with the area. Redirection is too slow it takes about 20 yards or so to realize that you've missed your turn and need be redirected. Not good! Taking this app down one star.
A little too glitchy for me!
by TrackerFan on 2019/05/16 18:57
I really want to like this app. I’m running it on an older iPhone 6 with the latest updates iOS. Two things especially in my experience: the upper left hand menu often defaults to a screen that tells you to speak one of several commands.....and of course you can’t close that screen to get back to the menu without suffering the same annoying crash; secondly, the trial version of the app that is supposed to give you an enhanced Apple Car Play experience crashes EVERY time I attempt to use it. My car uses the latest Ford Sync 3 infotainment which supports Car Play. Won’t be throwing good money after bad for that “upgrade”. Overall the interface is slick WHEN IT WORKS but It needs improvement and I hope they can get it done properly, but for now I’d say don’t waste your money here.
Don’t waste your money.
by Bubbed on 2019/09/03 03:28
In order to use this with Apple CarPlay, you have to buy the premium subscription which is more than $50. I did this and regret it. You cannot post alerts through the Apple CarPlay interface. You have to unplug your phone from your charger and do any postings on your cell phone. Using your cell phone while driving is illegal in many states. And it is not safe even where it is legal. I have used Waze for several years and I am totally satisfied with it. I don’t know why I spent money for this app. Also, the maps don’t seem up-to-date. There is a Kroger grocery store that moved from down the street from my office to the next street over about five years ago. The new grocery doesn’t show up in the database but the old grocery is where this program will take you. If I didn’t know better, I would be lost. Don’t buy this program.
Upsetting
by Kevinaw on 2018/08/23 19:47
During the trial period, everything seemed to work flawless (which is why I purchased it). But, since I purchased it, I am finding more and more flaws...such as, it doesn’t save my settings. Almost every time I open the app, something has changed. I have “fastest route” in my settings, but when I preview the routes, the primary route it chooses is not the fastest. When I change the route and select the “fastest route”, it goes back to the “longest route” when I start driving. The speed limits are not always correct. There was a good 3 mile stretch of interstate where the indicated speed limit was 5mph faster than what it should have been. I drive this route a lot and it has been the slower speed limit for a very long time (years, not months!). Apparently, all they want is your money!
Issue for 6 month
by Lawen2121 on 2019/02/07 21:43
I have priced multiple Addons in Sygic then I changed my device till know I am not able to restore my purchases or update my maps, already contacted sygic support by email and provide them with the screen shot of error and that I was that I am not able to update my map and I got some feedback at the end I was bored and saw that it was not going any where it was just emails from my side and to there sides still I am trying to find a way to make it work it’s not logical for me to spend this amount of money for it not to work properly I hope some from sygic read this so they can provide me with support by the way today I opened a new case with them regarding same issue to see if something can be done after 6 month I am hoping for the best but I am not optimistic
Please fix
by mildly dissapointed on 2018/02/11 19:31
App is ok but my home address is wrong and sometimes gives the wrong directions or sends you the long way around if your gonna charge so much for the app you should be doing better research of the state maps and roads can’t ask customers to try and recall every missed turn or wrong direction the app gave them on a trip that’s why we pay for the app so we don’t have to do your research for you I hope you get the app fixed soon I had to stop using it for now considering it doesn’t even know my own address and I can’t change it I should be able to change the address myself at least on my map so I do like the design and the way it’s laid out but am disappointed in the way it executes the directions
Sygic is limiting itself
by Ayomury on 2021/10/16 17:38
I am using Sygic for about ten years. But, my usage was decreased because of their money trap approach. For example, car play connection and map updates. These are an integral part of a navigation map. When I purchased Sygic, it was included all of them. Actually Car Play is required an additional purchase for once. Now, it requires a subscription membership. But, I don’t agree to pay for a subscription if I purchased an app. For me, a navigation app must offer all options together and can be priced either one time puchase or subscription only. Once, I was Sygic’s advocate in the past. But, not anymore. Still, I use its offline map feature but very rarely.
I want it to be 5 stars!!
by DelanoRenee on 2021/08/12 13:48
I love this app- I really do but after the last 2 updates, the crashes- while I’m trying to follow the directions! :( it’s happened a few times. When I restart the app after the crash or even just opening the app getting ready to go somewhere, the app won’t load it opens but it’s just blank. I’ll force close and restart and sometimes that helps, sometimes it comes up when it’s ready. I work early mornings and last thing I need it the app not to work while I’m driving on an unfamiliar road at night/early morning. Also the voice promoter cuts off and you can only hear a portion of the directions. Thank you for creating this app!
Not worth the 20 USD high price tag, and the annoyance of the app upselling every additional feature
by KK987955 on 2020/10/06 15:44
Two major issues: - It’s not a good product that’s worth 20 dollars. If you want a good real-time app then go for “Waze” app. If you also want offline map feature, then also add “Here Maps” app from Nokia. But for 20 USD!!, Sygic app just combines these two features into a low quality product. The Sygic app should have been worth maximum 5 USD. - On top of it, the app tries to upsell every additional feature. For e.g. 1) for the „Premium Carplay“ feature for 18 USD extra!, one has to pay again for basic features such as speed limit just for the Carplay. 2) And for 11 USD more!, one can have every month, map updates feature. I have not seen any place in the world where the map changes constantly every month for 12 months straight. The app seems to be constantly ripping off the customer. It is very annoying, when the app has become more of a pure profit-making app than a quality-built app. I think the only solution is to move your business model from a pure profit driven to a more quality driven. Otherwise, with time, there will be a long queue of frustrated customers lining up
Directions need work, can drive me crazy
by stephensafetyharbor on 2019/03/02 13:13
I love the app for the little speed limit notice in the lower right corner. It also shows my speed a I set it to turn red a 5 miles over the speed limit. For this, it would be better if it flashed a couple times as I exceed the 5 MPH over. But my big gripe is the verbal directions are quite stupid. I recently drove along a straight road with one route number for about seven miles. At virtually every intersection with a traffic light a voice told me to continue straight ahead! This happened about 15 times before I shut the voice off! Please fix it. I am Stephen in Safety Harbor Florida and I was traveling to the USF eye Institute in Tampa.
Good when driving, but when walking the voice commands go haywire
by JVP in Silverlake on 2019/02/14 08:38
Generally works as expected, and the downloadable maps are a godsend when driving where cellular or WiFi are not available or affordable. But when I connected earbuds to the iPhone in my pocket and used Sygic to give me directions while walking through Paris, France, the routing and voice commands went haywire, telling me arbitrarily to turn left, right, left, right, left as if I were doing somersaults. I had to turn off the routing and just use it as a plain map. Also, when using GPS my iPhone’s battery drained rapidly; a backup power pack is essential.
HUD doesn’t work like it says it does
by MoGunz22 on 2018/05/14 19:11
I downloaded this because it markets itself as an app that works with a HUD. It’s a separate mirror component that has a mirror and gives you a HUD using a normal phone. All it needs to work is for the phone to project backwards. Think of how something is reflected in a mirror. I paid the $5.99 to unlock this “premium” feature. But it doesn’t give you navigation on the “HUD” display. It just tells you your speed and the speed it shows is wrong. Don’t waste your money. HUD does NOT work on this app. Update: They added a response that says to contact customer service. The app does not work as intended. I have never had to contact customer service for anY app in my life. Especially a navigation app. I downloaded another app with HUD capability. $2.99 and works right away. DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP. IT COSTS MORE THAN THEIR COMPETITION AND DOESN'T WORK. GARBAGE.
Added 1 star for CarPlay support but too little too late.
by no spam for me on 2020/07/03 15:17
I gave this app 1 star before for not supporting CarPlay, terrible routing (including no way to avoid carpool lanes and all ETAs assuming carpool lane use, and in some cases routing me into Carpool-only freeway in ramps, which would have resulted in me breaking the law and giving no alternative routes), and a UI that just never seemed to work right....and of course extra money for frequent updates after charging $60 for the app itself? Nope. Today I’m updating my review and adding 1 star for CarPlay support finally but the terrible routing and glitchy UI still make this app pointless especially since Apple Maps has improved so much. I like the HUD function. Too bad the rest of the app still feels so half-baked.
Had high hopes
by maxvscamera on 2021/05/14 15:44
This navigation app had so many innovative features advertised so it was a no-brainer to give it a shot. $40 dollars in upgrades later and I’m wondering what the heck I’m doing with my life. That’s like 4 Taco Bell meals. The feature that drew me to the app most was the traffic light countdown, for the life of me I can’t get this to work .. pretty certain now that I’m in a region that doesn’t support this data and of course I would’ve like to have known this before purchasing. Also splurged for the Apple Car play upgrade after using it a couple days .. I don’t see any differences. I’ve made a few support to tickets to ask questions but no one has answered me yet.
Lifetime Subscription is Worthless
by kennwin1 on 2021/04/02 01:52
I've used Sygic for years, and years ago purchased a lifetime subscription for world maps and lifetime for Apple Carplay. For some reason, l don't get the premium + offerings, which Sygic wants to charge yearly for. On my old subscription l had all the premium features of traffic and turn by tirn instructions. I also had junction view. They have been removed and for my lifetime subscription l have basic plus option, in my opinion. This is nothing more than a way for Sygic to attempt to get me to ante up $20 a year for something I've already paid for. It's a terrible business practice. Totally disappointed. If you bought the lifetime subscription and expected more, I'm right there with you. Too, bad it doesn't mean what it used to.
Terrible customer service!
by Oly1971 on 2020/07/04 07:21
The mobile speed cameras in-app purchase does not work. All sygic in-app purchases require an ‘activation’ step before start working but this specific in-app cannot be activated in my iphone or ipad regardless my numerous efforts. I contacted repeatedly Sygic support and followed every suggestion they had for this problem to no avail. I requested them to either solve the issue or give me a refund but I haven’t heard from them since. Bear in mind that I bought this in-app 3 times without knowing because I tried repeatedly to ‘activate’ it but it led to an additional purchase of itself each time! (This in-app purchase is valid for a year I was told by sygic). Therefore I ended up paying for a service for 3 years unintentionally and the product doesnt even work!
