Sygic GPS Navigation for Android version 11.2 brings new features, new regions and even wider compatibility

Sygic GPS Navigation distributed via Android Market can now be used on a wide range of the latest tablets with Android operating system 3.0., 3.1. and 3.2. like Motorola Xoom and Asus Transformer. “We are trying to meet the requests and suggestions of our users, and widen the range of compatible devices as well as available regions.” says Samo Jurdik, Online Channels Director at Sygic.

Apart from implementing the much requested Google Local Search™ and favorite POI import, Sygic app now includes several other key improvements. A new interactive map allows users to tap on items on the map to access information or choose an action. The application was made safer by Text-to-Speech voice synthesis. Another practical feature is the visual notification of upcoming speed limit change, with distance to where the new speed limit becomes effective. Dynamic Lane Guidance™, moving animation, appears when approaching complex motorway intersections to indicate which lanes to take.
