Quick App Update: Sygic Mobile Maps for iPhone

Are you still on the hunt for the right GPS navigation application? Sygic Mobile Maps [$59.00 - US iTunes Link] has just gotten a much needed update and we are happy to report is has polished this GPS app nicely. Gone is the lag we experienced along with the addition of some other much anticipated features.

  • Now with text-to-speech - voice guidance announcing the name of the next street or road
  • Choose addresses straight from your iPhone contacts and navigate to.
  • Music playback fades out smoothly so you can better hear the voice instructions.
  • Improved GPS lock, now faster than ever.
  • Smoother position display as you follow your route.
  • Increased font size of street names and information bars for improved readability.
  • No disclaimer warning message after completion of phone call.

So if you currently have this application, update now! If not and you are still on the lookout for a good GPS app, Sygic Mobile Maps is definitely worth a look.

I'm DEFINITELY in the market for one of these, but was wondering what folks would recommend for an iPhone dashboard holder when using it?

Traveling2 says:

@William Mize - I use a very inexpensive Holder/FM Trans/Charger from Meritline (see: http://www.meritline.com/mediagate-i-kit-fm-hands-free-car-kit-185---p-2...). It was only $24.00 and works very well.

Hey Guys,
There is an interesting event at Stanford GSB on Oct 20 about Mobile Payments, thought it might interest some of you here. Check it out http://www.vlab.org/article.html?aid=283"

@Traveling2: I actually have almost that exact same rig. Mine was put out by DriveSafeCanada. I didn't know it turned to landscape. I will have to head out to the car and check.

I performed the update, the gps lock is definitely faster, the gui is improved, but I haven't had it speak any street names yet, not sure why :(

ScottUrman says:

I noticed that some of the voices say (TTS) after them - try one of those.

Traveling2 says:

@Jeremy - Check the voice you are using. Only certain voices have TTS. I thinking selecting a different voice will solve the problem.
@William Mize - With the flexible arm on mine I can turn it and bend it to allow landscape. Works great.

big9erfan says:

Awesome! I didn't even look at the voices, thanks :)

Brent Summerton says:

Anyone find that when pulling addresses from the iPhones contacts that the house number gets changed by the program and a house which is at 11 Vista St, is changed to Vista 22/3????
