How Sygic Offline Navigation Works?
We downloaded the app to test its features, and were left quite impressed. Sygic India navigation app is not light weight. Android users first need to download 44.4 mb app after which they need to download additional plugin (around 37mb) and maps of states where offline navigation is needed.
We downloaded entire Maharashtra map which was over 112mb.
However, once you have downloaded everything, it is a breeze. The app runs fast and has every feature that a traveler may want.
