Sygic to Introduce Maps & Navigation SDK for mobile development at MWC Americas 2017 in San Francisco

13. 09. 2017

Sygic, the leading GPS technology company, will be introducing its Sygic Mobility Development Kit (SDK) at the MWC 2017 in San Francisco, the premier mobile industry event for the Americas. From September 12-14, developers can explore the Sygic Mobile SDK demo at booth w.621 at the NEXTech pavilion.

Sygic’s mapping & navigation engine is trusted by more than 200 million users worldwide and this will be the first time that the company will be offering its technology to mobile developers.

Innovative approach
The idea is to offer maximum flexibility to mobile and automotive app developers that can choose different map content providers (Here, TomTom and OSM), use online, offline or hybrid maps & navigation, real time information about traffic and parking or even a truck specific routing in their apps. Sygic Mobility Development Kit is available in modular architecture including Maps, Search, Guidance, Routing & Optimization APIs to support any use case that the future of mobility will bring.

“We want to share our extensive experience and know-how in innovating GPS solutions with other developers to create new and exciting products”, said Pavol Magic, Head of Business Development at Sygic. “Mobile World Congress – with all its ambitious and innovative attendees – is the perfect place to introduce our SDK to other talented developers.”

The GSMA Mobile World Congress serves as both the world's largest exhibition for the mobile industry, and features prominent executives representing mobile operators, device manufacturers, technology providers, vendors and content owners from across the world.

“Sygic is committed to exploring the boundaries of navigation, a philosophy that has directly contributed to our enduring reputation as the leader in navigation”, added Magic. “It is important for us, not only that we develop as a company, but also that the industry continues to develop as a whole; for that reason we want to share our knowledge with the brightest minds in the industry”.
