One of the specific features of this app are Truck attributes. You can set up your Sygic Truck according to the parameters of your vehicle. You modify the height, width, lenght, weight, axle load and others and thanks to this feature, you can avoid any roads that are not suitable for your vehicle.
Once you have set your truck attributes and you calculate a route, the route will be calculated according to the parameters you have inserted and the restrictions in the map data.
On the following pictures, you may see the difference on the same route (Debrecen, HU -> Den Helder, NL). The first one is calculated with the truck attributes, the second is calculated without truck attributes.
Most centers of the cities will act like No-Drive zones, unless you have a drop zone inside. In case there would be a time interval for the drop zone (e.g. from 07:00 – 09:00) and you will plan a route in an evening hours, you will be asked to select different destination and if you would refuse, it will navigate you to the closest point possible.
Please note that if there is some kind of special permission required to access the drop zone in the center of the town, navigation will automatically assume that you have it.
You may also set if your truck load is hazardous (explosive or harmful to water). Each of these options will affect the calculated route. As for example, you may see on the following pictures route with explosive materials, where the algorithm has avoided a tunnel and without explosive materials, where the route was calculated through the tunnel.
