1- Sygic Introduction

I do have to admit that I have a very poor sense of direction and never quite trust myself that I know the best route. I use Google Maps to plan my route before leaving my place, even for around my home town. Google Maps/Navigation is fantastic. It’s easy to use, stays (mostly) up-to-date, and is built into Android’s core. However, it has one major flaw: Offline navigation simply doesn’t exist within Google Maps. Specially If you’re heading into uncharted territory where cell service may be sketchy or non-existent, you’re basically on your own. And getting lost is not a fun experience. (It happened with me frequently in the past. One horrible experience I still remember of getting lost at Karachi board office area, and in north Nazimabad, I spent more then 1 hour just to get on main road😛 lol )

The solution? A third-party GPS application with offline support, like Sygic’s Maps & GPS Navigation. Sygic works by downloading and storing maps on your smartphone for offline use — so you can have a fully functioning GPS with no internet connection.  Be aware, Note that like any other CPU/resource hungry application or other navigation app m this one does use a heavy amount of battery. Make sure if you are using Sygic for android in car for longer time, you must have car mobile charger with you. I used SAMSUNG Galaxy S3 mobile charger (which coasted 400 Pak Rupees / original but slightly used)



2- Download Link

Download URL: [Pre_Activated]  http://xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx [Google Drive Link, ]

3- Installation Instructions

To install Sygic 14.x.x for android, follow instructions as below …

1- Unzip the sygic zip file, it will be extracted to a folder name SYGIC.
2- Now upload this SYGIC folder and sygic_xxxxx.apk file to root of your android (like in main root or in SD Card)
3- Open any File Explorer on your android set, browse to main root folder (or sd card where you uploaded the .apk file and sygic folder)  and execute sygic_xxxxx.apk and follow the on screen instructions and it will install sygic application.
4- By default it will not have map for Pakistan, Make sure you have some good internet connection (wifi)
Open Sygic application, and goto Settings, Manage Map , and download PAKISTAN (or your desired) map from MIDDLE EAST section. Download size would be around 80+ MB.


Example of Folder Structure:


I have included its manual in PDF format as well for some learning purposes.

Note: In my personnel experience, Sygic 14.3.4 is still very much stable release with easier search options and works better then all new releases, I suggest to stick with the 14.3.4 version until some really stable release.

4- 14.7.7 Overview with screenshots

Thank you for contacting Sygic.
Please accept our most sincere apologies for the late reply. Our support is currently tasked to capacity.

Its true that SYGIC maps are a bit old (for Pakistan), but still they provide best navigation for general traveling. To overcome this issue, I usually use GOOGLE Map and plan the route according to my requirement, then I save its link and convert it with ITF converter tool. then I import it in SYGIC MAPS , and it works good.

If some is interested to know how to convert Google map route to android Sygic, let me know and I will post an guide for it. or read this link.

Import Route works fine with ver 14.3.x or older , but Not working with 14.7.x


7-  Pakistan MAP Last Update [1st October, 2015 GOOD NEWS ! MAP UPDATED NOW ]

Good news for Pakistan ! Sygic maps have been updated. Last updated map for Pakistan is (as of writing) is Jun 2015. I can see many updated names and places , even many mechanic shop names and others are  there. so its really updated🙂
today I purchased it online. Cost was 25$ for Pakistan Map license. Purchasing was instant and I got the activation code by Email. I know there are cracks available, but I just purchased it to support the good work !

Here are some Technical details:

app=Sygic GPS Navigation


9- Backup Sygic Favorites / POI / Routes etc

If you need to remove sygic and re install again, then its a good idea to backup your custom POI / Routes and favorites, because creating them again and again can be a real headache :s so here are the folders you should backup , and then can restore them in same location to get back the data🙂

Howto Backup SYGIC Favorites / Routes / Custom POI / ICONS  =

– Favorites are stored in folder /Sygic/Res/db as items.dat

– Routes are saved in /Sygic/Res/Itinerary (one .itf file is one route).

– Custom POIs are stored in /Sygic/Maps/Rupi/<countries>. Points of Interest are stored for each country separately.
You need to make a backup of all these folders, otherwise they will be lost.

– Custom icons for Points of Interest are stored of in /Sygic/res/icons/rupi.

– Please make a backup of these folders. After a complete re-installation of the navigation, you need to copy them back to the same place.

Note: 15.5.9 is the best stable version as of 23-Nov-2015 / zaib. its stable, have lesser gps signals failure issues, less crashing😉

  14. I have the same experience as you when it comes to using online navigation. When I was working for a year (I didn’t get more time on my visa) in Calgary, I was driving around all the time serving customers and I was lost all the time. When you take a wrong turn in Canada and drive for 20 miles without signal, hoping it was a good turn, it’s not fun. Then my boss gave me GPS navigation Canada from Sygic and it was great! Never lost again. When I returned home to Pakistan a month ago, I was so used to using Sygic, I had to find one so many many thanks for writing and sharing this. Thanks a lot for the download link. Good luck.

    • Sygic is a blessing for drives who are weak in memorizing the pathways, or for new destinations. It helped me a lot as I always feel fear of lost when going to some new destinations in the city. SYGIC really helps. although map for Pakistan is quite old (year 2011 updated) but still its good as its the only best option available.
