Sygic, the leading offline mobile navigation brand, has announced that the India edition of the Sygic navigation app for Android has now gone free. The price of this app, till now, was Rs 1399. The application continues to use MapmyIndia’s 3D maps, and offers voice guided navigation via maps that may be stored on the device. The advantage of this is that if you have GPS connectivity, the navigation will work, since it doesn’t rely on Internet connectivity for constant map refreshes.
