How to create a route?
Sygic Truck Navigation offers multiple ways to create a route to a desired destination.
Choosing the destination directly on the map
Simply choose a place where you would like to go directly while browsing the maps. Tap directly on the desired place on the map and an info table will pop up, containing the street name, city name and the distance from your current position. If you tap on the info table, a menu with additional options will pop up. If you select the Navigate to option, a route to the selected destination will be calculated.
After you tapped on the Navigate to button, the route preview will be shown and you can either modify the route in the Options or you can start navigating by tapping on Navigate.
While browsing the maps, especially when you are zoomed in, you can see many small icons/symbols on the map.
These icons/symbols represent Places (POI – Point of Interest), that could intereset you, for example restaurants, tourist attractions, gas stations, shopping centres and many others. If you would like to navigate to such a place, simply select such a place on the map and follow the above guide.
Searching for the destination
Tap on the magnifying glass in the bottom-left corner and you should see a couple of options on how to search for your desired destination.
Simply start typing in the address or the name of a certain place (POI) into the search bar. A list of results will appear below the search bar. Select the one of the results by tapping on it and then start navigating.
Search for an address
The fastest way is to search simply for the street and the street number, for example „Kalinciakova 13“ and then select one of the results.
If you get too many results, you can specify the search by adding a city for example „Kalinciakova 13 Bratislava“.
The order of words in the search does not matter. You can simply type in the address like this as well „Bratislava Slovakia Kalinciakova 13“.
After successfully searching for the desired address, tap on it and a menu with multiple options will appear. If you select the Navigate to option, a route to the selected destination will be calculated. After you tapped on the Navigate to button, the route preview will be shown and you can either modify the route in the Options or you can start navigating by tapping on Navigate.
Searching for a Point of Interest (POI)
If your desired place of interest is in our map database, you can simply search for such a place by typing in its name into the search bar.
Selecting a destination from the List of POIs
Under the search bar, you can find two other search options. One of them is the Nearby POI option. After tapping on this option, a list of all nearby POIs will appear ordered according to the distance from your current position.
Using GPS coordinates
You can either type in the GPS coordinates into the main search bar, or you can use the GPS coordinates option at the very bottom of the search options. You can choose a format of the GPS coordinates that you prefer. Simply type in the latitude and longitude, then tap on the Done button in the bottom-right corner. The default GPS coordinates that are shown, when you first open the GPS coordinates search option show your current GPS location.
