One of the most eagerly anticipated events for drivers who use Android phones is here. Sygic GPS Navigation is now available on Android Auto as one of the first navigation apps, offering the benefit of offline maps. Currently, Sygic is used by more than 200 million users worldwide.
Sygic GPS Navigation on Android Auto brings an entirely new experience and level of comfort. Mirroring the navigation app to your car’s screen enables safer navigation usage and means no more devices on the windshield, and no need to look down or handle your phone while driving.
After connecting your phone to an Android Auto-enabled vehicle, the app is projected onto the vehicle’s screen. The interface is easy to use thanks to its large menu buttons and intuitive design. 3D maps, text and signs are more readable. Thanks to its connection to the car’s sound system, voice navigation commands are clearer.
As an added bonus, Sygic GPS Navigation includes offline maps that let you navigate accurately even in areas where data coverage is patchy. Besides these properties, other safety-supporting features are available: speed limit warnings, predictive routing that forecasts traffic congestion, and simple lane assistant for safer switching of lanes.
Thanks to this integration with Android Auto, applying the user's personalized Sygic navigation preferences and maps to any Android Auto-enabled vehicle is possible. This is an outstanding benefit for those who use company vehicles, car rentals or car-sharing.
The agile development team at Sygic, which has its headquarters in Slovakia, Central Europe, have finalized this project after several months of intensive work. "We are happy that we were invited as early access partners to the Android for Cars App Library and that Sygic is finally available, via car displays, as a great option for navigation. We believe users will enjoy our beautiful offline maps, but also other features that make Sygic a reliable and safe guide on the road, always following the latest user experience trends," said Lukas Dermek, Head of Product at Sygic.
Sygic GPS Navigation on Android Auto will be released for its users in supported countries orderly.
