Apps for Less: Sygic Mobile Maps US - Turn-By-Turn Voice Guided GPS Navigation

With news of TomTom hitting Apple's App Store it's time to start looking out for great deals from the other GPS apps that are currently available. Today we were notified that one of the most feature filled GPS apps, Sygic Mobile Maps for the US is on sale for a limited time and it's priced to sell - $39.99. [iTunes Link]

We've used Sygic Mobile Maps and it is well worth $39.99 if you are within the United States. The sale ends at the end of this month so be sure to act fast! It contains some very nice features with some of the highlights as followed:

  • Voice guided turn-by-turn GPS navigation
  • Rotation sensor for automatic switching between landscape/portrait operation in real-time
  • Automatic return to the app and the route after a phone call
  • All important safety features, including lane assistance, speed limit indication, safety cameras, information about railway crossings and dangerous areas
  • Thousands of POIs; among others also a list of parking options nearby for you to select and be guided to selection between car and bicycle modes for optimum route calculation
  • All the maps will be stored on the device, there will be no need to download data on the go, which otherwise costs unnecessary waiting time and money

Screen shots after the break!
