Sygic Truck GPS Navigation
Sygic Truck GPS Navigation Review. Great for Truck, RV & Bus Drivers
The Sygic Truck GPS navigation system for large vehicles is a professionally tailored app offering various tools for premium routing, including 3D maps and GPS search features, with the added advantage of being fully operational offline for iOS and Android mobile.
The Sygic Truck App Store and Google Play app for GPS navigation makes great use of 3D maps, and one of the selling points of both iOS and Android app is the fact that it is straightforward and there is no need for expensive display hardware other than a regular phone screen. The HUD 3D maps can be zoomed in and out, and the view angle can also be altered. Apart from the high-quality maps, users will get a dark screen where they can choose special vehicle parameters and a full z-view map where they can set up multiple waypoints and view complete routes.
The app is quite intuitive and handily designed, and the maps are also colorful, which should be of great help when the user is driving.
Interface score: 9/10
The app is a great help to drivers of large vehicles who need to optimize their route experience. The inbuilt features help drivers avoid roads and routes which are not suitable for their types of vehicles and the cargo that they carry. The HUD display navigation feature assists drivers to project the maps onto their windshields which is important because these drivers never have to take their eyes off the road to look at the map.
The app features will help drivers avoid certain routes thus saving time and fuel. The app provides regular free maps, POI and a speed cam database going back as many as 3 years. The app only needs internet during the initial installation and during updates but works on GPS. This solution also helps accidents and mishaps in hours of low visibility.
The app is compatible with all iPhones, iPads and iPod touch running iOS 9.0 or later. For Google Android devices, the APK version will require Android 4.0 or higher.
Both the APK and IPA versions are free. There are in-app purchases costing $9.99 to $139.99. These include monthly subscriptions, map packages, a heads-up display and Live services.
Features score: 8/10
Users have often complained about the app trying to take them to a wrong address severally. The app closes unexpectedly when you are using it, and this mostly happens when you have exhausted the two week trial period and have paid a subscription. The app also won’t locate some addresses even after uninstalling and reinstalling it.
User experience score: 6/10
The developers provide frequent updates to the app, with the latest version having new features like Full-Text Search, improved app stability, and less frequent crashes, reduced app size, spoken street names and fixes for traffic overlapping on freeways.
I’d recommend this app because it’s still among the leading navigation apps compared to the most popular like Garmin. The app developers should make the app a bit more stable to eliminate the frequent crashes. The fact that it doesn’t need an internet connection makes it extremely handy. This is an app for all Android devices and iOS gadgets so anyone can use it.
