For the life of me, why can't anyone create a proper GPS app?! Here are the directions for me to go from the gym where I work to home: take the commercial highway north for 10 miles, make a right onto eastbound bridge leading to miami beach aaaand I'm home. Not too complicated yes? Why then do I use the GPS app? For the same reason most people use a GPS app leaving from work to go home, to find out if there's an accident, traffic, construction, etc., so they can take an alternate route. Unfortunately, the "genuises" behind many of the GPS apps either fail to recognize this, or perhaps I'm the only one that uses a gps app for this purpose. That being the case, why even bother saving our “work” and “home” addresses on the GPS? For the past month, the intellectually challenged and lazy people behind miami-dade highway construction has been shutting down multiple lanes at night funneling rush-hour traffic (rush-hour traffic in miami is from 5am to 9pm, that's not an exaggeration, the traffic here is horrible) into one or two lanes thereby creating a parking lot on the highway. To make matters worse, they close off the exit to the aforementioned eastbound bridge that leads to my home. They do this with NO SIGNS OR WARNINGS. Here's the thing, there are two other eastbound bridges I can take before the one I mentioned before. They don't lead straight to my home, but I'd rather drive north on local roads on the beach for 10 min than sit in traffic for 30 min. A few weeks ago, I was using that horrible app WAZE and the stupid app recognized there was traffic, construction, and police, yet still sent me down the highway into traffic to get to that eastbound bridge. That's when I realized the bridge was closed. I tried three times to tell WAZE that the bridge was closed and the stupid app was still trying to send me down the exit. Two right lanes where closed off from the highway for the next several miles north including the exits. Needless to say, it took me nearly two hours to get home when it should have taken 20 min. A couple days later I tried using GOOGLE MAPS, it did the same stupid thing. Enter SYGIC. Surely an app that you have to pay for and has all these bells and whistles can recognize that there is a much faster route than having me sit in traffic for a long time only to find out the exit is closed off and adding another 30 minutes to the drive. NOPE!!!! Not only does this app fail like the others, when I ignore the stupid directions and take the first bridge to head home, the app INSISTS that I exit off that bridge, drive back toward the highway and get back into the traffic. I just ignore the directions or turn off the app. How profoundly stupid is that? This happened again tonight. At one point, the map was literally spinning around in circles as the app would assume I made the three right turns (seriously, that is was the app told me to do, go around in circles) as I completely ignored it yet again. Now I gave this app 2 stars because unlike the other pathetic gps apps, this one gives you lane assist. But that's about it for the bells and whistles. There is no excuse for how terrible all these gps apps perform. All you people making apps, give me the funds and resources and I absolutely guarantee I can make a better GPS app than all of the trash that is available now. Because I have the ability to think beyond whatever you all call innovation. For example, and this is a ridiculously simple thing, if I have my HOME saved in favorites, and I take the time and effort to press my finger to the "heart symbol" to bring up the list of favorite locations, and I then press on "HOME", why do you think I'm doing this? Hmm? Here's a hint: Because I want to go home! SO, having said that, why ask me if I want directions? Why do I have to press the "get directions button" for you to then show me a couple routes in the form of narrow little lines for me to press on to select the route as opposed to a "take route A" or "Take route B" button? Then, even after I've selected the route, I STILL have to press yet another button to initiate the navigation? Also, once I'm within 500 meters from my home, I'm pretty sure I can take it from there. In fact, all I really need to know: is there traffic, police, construction, etc. unless I'm forced to take a route other than the one I usually take home, I don't need turn by turn directions. To me, this seems profoundly axiomatic, yet no other gps app developers seem to grasp this little concept. I'll say it again, any investors out there that want to create a GPS app that makes the current apps seem as archaic as taking a taxi is archaic compared to using LYFT, let me know. I promise you, I can do a better job creating an app than what is available now.
I have been using Sygic since 2016 and a trip to Mexico. Worked well and never upgraded or updated the ap. I’m kind of old school and my thinking is - if it’s not broken then don’t fix it and this carries into my phone and it’s aps. I “upgraded.” Big mistake. Instant pop up ads and update features getting sent as messages on my phone . I tried to stop these notifications off and the constant red bar above the navigation software telling me “my 7 days premium are over” but to no avail. What was a stellar five star ap has become a source of 3-5 pointless messages a week a removed feature from my phone. So infuriated with losing a great ap, I’m writing a one star review. Your ap was great before all the features and pop up messages and would rate it five stars . Sad days.......
The program is beautiful but I have some notes - the program is heavy and does not open quickly - sometimes it exits automatic
Suggestion on improving searching contacts: If I have address with apartment/door number, Sygic fails to find it. On removing the apartment address, it finds the location. Sygic could process the address and generate a few combinations as part of search. This comes under ‘query rewriting’ and will make it more user friendly.
How can I write on the phone if it is connected to the radio? I do not see the function 😕
This is the worst application that does not perform as the advertising. I sent the report problem 2 times, and received two automated emails which referred to some unrelated problems. No human technical staff contacted me, I couldn’t get a refund for this worthless application. Don’t buy this fake application together with the add ons. I give a zero star to rate this cheating application.
my carplay says keyboard access is limited and I can’t type anything on my car display. didn’t expect this from sygic. so is the 2star rating. I paid for premium carplay features too but it is so unusable.
This app looks good but it runs heavy and it keeps crashing whenever I use it.
Je suis très satisfait
I spent most of a day trying to get my $50 Worth of maps reinstalled on my new phone Getting any support is like next to impossible I’m giving up on this app
