Dear customer,

Thank you for choosing Sygic GPS Navigation.

Sygic GPS Navigation User guide

Sygic GPS Navigation software is a complete navigation system with realistic 3D maps, accurate search and precise route computing. Sygic GPS Navigation goes beyond professional car navigation, supporting pedestrian navigation and basic level for outdoor activities.

Sygic GPS Navigation is offline navigation software and does not require online connection to operate. Online connection is only necessary during initial installation and activation of the software and for installing maps and updates. Online connection is also necessary for optional add-on services such as Traffic information and crowd-sourced Police trap alerts.

Your safety and the safety of your passengers is of utmost importance, that is why you should always plan your route before the beginning of the journey. Also make sure that you have installed all maps and updates while in the comfort of your home or at a place with solid Wi-Fi connection. For longer trips make sure that you have a compatible charger to avoid draining the device battery.

While driving, always keep your eyes on the road and avoid operating the software. Local roadway signs and regulations take precedence over indications of this navigation software. Please take reasonable care and keep your own sound judgment while following instructions.

We wish you a pleasant and safe journey.
