Sygic Brings 60 Million Indian Android Users Free Offline Navigation with MapmyIndia Maps
Offline mapping service giant Sygic today announced that it will be making its app for India available to all Android owners for free. Sygic India: GPS Navigation, previously offered at INR 1399 ($27.99), is now free on Google Play. The app is powered by map data from Indian map provider MapmyIndia.
Due to India's heavy traffic conditions and unreliable data connections in many rural areas, quality offline maps are particularly important for millions of drivers in the country, as well as visiting tourists. Now India’s 60 million Android users can access helpful voice-guided GPS navigation and a robust set of tools to help them navigate to their desired destination.
Already the world leader in offline GPS navigation, Sygic provides over 30,000,000 global users with navigation in 115 countries and integrates data from travel and mapping companies like TomTom and TripAdvistor to give drivers an unmatched navigation experience. Maps in the Sygic app are stored on the user’s phone instead of streamed from the Internet like most navigation apps, which means that Sygic users don’t have to worry about running up against their cellular data caps by using GPS navigation or getting lost in an area with poor cell reception.
“By making our advanced navigation app available to millions of users for free, Sygic is helping countries like India become a safer, more enjoyable place to travel,” said Sygic CEO Michal Štencl. “With Sygic’s offline app and MapmyIndia maps, users can now take advantage of a robust set of tools that can help them effectively manage their travel plans and get them where they need to go confidently and more efficiently.”
Features of Sygic India: GPS Navigation includes turn-by-turn voice-guided GPS navigation, voice guidance in more than 40 languages, and speed limit display and audio warnings.
