Sygic gps app is another extremely popular software and stands out among other gps apps for iPhone .
Today we will talk about Sygic for iPhone or iPad. The current version is the result of some major updates throughout time and it is a good app that will make you enable gps feature on iphone more often .
Sygic for iPhone stands out with amazing graphics, an accurate menu and several unique features.
The Home Screen shows main streets, well-defined landscape, street names and their classification.
In the bottom part we have a digital speedometer and the current time.
Unfortunately it doesn’t display the street we are on or the current location.
If we access the magnifier in the corner we enter the search menu. From the Home Screen we can also launch Smart search (illustrated on the screen by a small magnifying glass).In fact it is a fast search of a location or an address based on a key word.
We can create a route by entering the address, a point of interest or the coordinates. We can also set a destination based on a photo of a place provided that the photo file has the coordinates of that particular place (many cameras have this feature). We can add waypoints points to create a complete route or we can add frequently used locations in a group called Favorites.
Sygic for iPhone comes with other interesting features:
– Travel Book is a log registered by the software with driving time, locations, routes, etc which are organized by days and months and which will automatically generate graphs.
– SOS Help is a feature that displays the nearest hospitals or police stations, drugstores or petrol stations for emergency situations.
All of these can be displayed quickly on the map for a fast route and the emergency call can be made by clicking on an icon.
-We especially enjoyed the Battery Management feature by means of which we can improve battery usage while navigation (activating gps on iphone will drain battery faster )
We can choose between Power Saver mode, Optimum or Maximum and Sygic will cancel or activate certain features that are not absolutely necessary.
Sygic gps app uses Teleatlas maps to create routes.
Routing and path creating
For routing we have 3 alternatives provided : quick , short and economical and if the live traffic service is activated it will automatically avoid congestions or highway works and we will know in advance any problem that has arisen on our route.
We like Sygic for iPhone because: – it has excellent graphics, the SOS feature is a real help and it is very well set/ operational and the battery usage management is welcomed in any smartphone.
We don’t like Sygic for iPhone for : – The lack of a quick menu on the Home Screen and not displaying the street we are currently on.
Sygic can be downloaded from the App Store and then according to your needs you can download the necessary maps through Wi-Fi. Just install the app then enable gps on iphone . Enter your destination and enjoy your travel !
