What is the difference between Sygic GPS Navigation, and Sygic Car Navigation apps?

Sygic GPS Navigation & Offline Maps for Android, and Sygic Car Navigation for Android were both designed for a specific purpose. Each app is easily distinguishable from the other, by having a different interface and app icon:

Sygic GPS Navigation & Offline Maps for Android

App icon:


Sygic GPS Navigation & Offline Maps for Android is our main navigation app for mobile devices. You can use it in almost any Android device with a GPS receiver,(which almost all devices have). The app is capable of navigating you offline after you have the maps downloaded within the app. Its routing and features are designed for users driving regular cars. You'll find this app's dedicated Help page here.

Sygic Car Navigation for Android

App icon:


Sygic Car Navigation for Android is an app that supports car connectivity with built-in car infotainment systems of selected car and smartphone brands that support MirrorLink 1.1 or through Ford's Sync3 infotainment system (software update 3.0 or higher is required for Sync3). You can use the cable you got with your smartphone to mirror this app on the screen of your car. The app also offers the option to use it without this car connectivity as a smartphone-only navigation app, it uses a different interface which some users may prefer when compared to Sygic GPS Navigation. You'll find this app's dedicated Help page here.

Can I activate my premium license from Sygic GPS Navigation to Sygic Car, or vice-versa?

The license you buy for any Sygic app is valid in the app you buy it for. It is not possible to transfer, switch or otherwise activate a license from one Sygic app in another Sygic app, due to the fact that you are buying a software license for a specific app. Please keep this in mind when selecting a Sygic App and select the app that best suits your needs.

Also, please note that it is also not possible to transfer any of these app's licenses across different platforms, like from Android to iOS, since paid licenses are bound to the app and platform you buy them for.
