Navigation Giant Sygic with more than 200 million users worldwide and Pioneer Electronics, a leading car audio specialist, today announced their partnership. Sygic’s technology is available for iOS and Android smartphone users, and its class-leading Sygic Car Navigation app is optimized to work seamlessly with Pioneer Multimedia Receivers that feature AppRadio smartphone connectivity.
Compatibility between Sygic and Pioneer offers an in-dash navigation option for those who don’t want to buy a new car or wait for their automaker of choice to catch up with the times. Sygic Car Navigation connects with a lineup of Pioneer aftermarket receivers and projects directly to the vehicle touchscreen, allowing drivers to enjoy advanced navigation features with the latest offline maps with Lifetime free maps updates, Traffic Information, Parking Services, Speed Camera warnings, Dynamic Lane Assistance, Fuel Prices, millions of POIs and more.
“We are excited to work with Pioneer and build on their advanced technologies for car connectivity. Together we will strive to make driving safer and easier for car owners, so that they can enjoy the driving experience even more,” said Štefan Jančiga, Vice President for Automotive at Sygic.
“We look forward to cooperate with Sygic and extend the choice in navigation apps our users have. In-car navigation is a matter of personal preference, and as the preferred choice of many, we welcome Sygic to delight even more of users,” said Ronan McDonagh, General Manager for Multimedia Technology Planning at Pioneer.
Sygic`s Car Navigation is specially optimized to work with car’s built-in infotainment systems via smartphone to in-dash connectivity. With Pioneer`s Multimedia Receivers, drivers can conveniently command their Navigation App through the large and clear in-dash display. The technology aims to reduce a driver’s urge to pick up and look at their mobile device.
Described as one of the world’s most successful apps by the BBC, Sygic is truly the leader in navigation today. “Sygic’s philosophy is to explore the boundaries of navigation, and we look forward to bringing more revolutionary tools and features to users later in 2018.”
