Sygic’s “Car Navigation: GPS & Maps” iOS app has updated to support^( today. Sygic’s app has a long history on the iOS ^( as ^( GPS navigation apps ^( on the iPhone.
With CarPlay support, ^( on iOS [ ^( ] connects to a car’s infotainment system, projecting Sygic’s turn-by-turn directions onto a car’s screen. Drivers can control Sygic Car Navigation features through steering wheel buttons and touch screen controls, if they are signed up for the company’s Premium plans.
Downloading the app is free, but after a seven day free trial, users will have to pay for one of a handful of bundles to acquire a license to use the app. The Premium lifetime licenses included features like offline maps, speed limits, voice-guided navigation, fuel prices, lane guidance, route sharing, traffic information, and more. Prices for North American bundles range from $13.99 for “basic” to $74.99 for “connected.”
