Plan your gps route for Sygic on your smartphone

Planning a Sygic route might be much easier on your computer, sometimes you do not have one at your disposal! Especially when you are on your motorbike, it is fun to choose curvy roads and scenic views instead of the shortest one!

Change some settings

For easy planning, there are a few settings you need to set to ‘no’. Avoid toll roads, avoid unpaved roads, avoid motorways and avoid ferries are just a pain in the ass if they are set to ‘always ask’. While adding waypoints to your route, it will constantly re-ask these questions! Just choose yes or no, and when your route is planned, change those, if desired!

After changing these settings, let’s go start planning!

Navigate to

I always start with Navigate to… and select my destination. Usually I do use the Address or POI function.

After selecting the address, I go for Drive to and Navigate. Now I get a map with 3 possible routes. I stick with number one, since that is the shortest route, and then modify it to go to where I want!

When you touch the pink line, you get a flag. You can move that flag to a place where you want Sygic to navigate through. Every time after placing a flag, you need to wait a bit, since it tries to calculate a new route already! It might be a bit cumbersome, but when you try to create a good motorcycling route, on the road, this is your best option for now!

Don’t forget to save so you can load later! Yes it’s important, since Sygic sometimes crashes! Go to options, Route options and choose Save route.

Since the calculation of route 2 and 3 can sometimes be slow, I wonder if there is an option to limit the road proposals to 1, which would definitely be much quicker!

  1. Hi, helpful article thank you.
    When I save a route in Google Maps and transfer it to Sygic in my phone, the route always shows in Sygic Routes as Google Maps no matter what I rename it as. Makes it hard to differentiate between my Routes.
    Any suggestions?

    Thanks.

    1. Hi,

      After loading the url and getting the waypoints in ITN Converter, you can enter the name, that will be used in Sygic.
      This picture is an example (and the last map I have made).
      As you can see the title in Sygic will be: Naar Utrecht
