Sygic Mobile Maps Brazil for iPhone will bring Brazilian Portuguese voice and contacts integration

August 26, 2009

iphonscreensBrazilian Portugese voice has been the most desired feature from the user feedback of Sygic turn-by-turn voice guideed navigation application in Brazil. Fulfilling this wish is going to be a part of the app update to be submitted to iTunes for approval shortly.

iPhone users of Sygic's turn-by-turn voice guided navigation application in Brazil can look forward not only to the Brazilian Portuguese voice, but also to a set of new features and enhancements coming in the next update of the app at iTunes App Store. After the update is approved by the iTunes team, the automatic notification will encourage the iPhone owner to download the update. This is highly recommended, as the update is for free and it will bring following great features:

  • voz em português do Brazil added to the app

  • ability to choose addresses straight from iPhone contacts and navigate to them

  • smooth fading out of the music playback before the voice instructions

  • enhanced GPS lock, now faster than ever

  • smoother position display when moving on the route

  • navigation automatically resumes after completion of phone call, without the need to tap the ‚Accept' button anymore


We are constantly listening to customer feedback. We are very thankful for all the comments posted on different fora, to our support line, at iTunes as well as via our Facebook page and SygicOfficial Twitter account.‘ says Anna Hurbanic, Sygic's PR Manager.
