Sygic Mobile Maps 2010 | Garmin City Navigator 2011

Today I will post about two of the most popular GPS applications for Symbian devices. These featured GPS applications includes the Mapsource and everything else so that you can get the updated maps for all over the world. Today I will feature the updated versions of Sygic Mobile Maps 2010 and Garmin City Navigator 2011. For those of you who visits my blog often may remember that I have already featured both of these GPS apps in the past. Sygic Mobile GPS was featured once and Garmin Mobile GPS XT 5 was actually featured twice before. Why am I posting these new versions in a different post? Because both these updated apps deserve the spotlight again for all their new features and these new versions may or may not work with S60v3. In case it does not (it really should!) you can always go back to the earlier versions.

Sygic Mobile Maps 2010 Nokia
Sygic Mobile Maps 10 – Sygic Mobile Maps 10 (aka 8.22 released by MapMyIndia & 8.16 globally) brings a lot of new features including an upgraded version of the previous fluid UI that we saw on Nokia. The fullscreen mode the GPS route navigation is simply awesome and so is the 3D navigation! They have also added direct navigation to any stored contacts (as long as there is an address specified for a contact) of your phone so that you do not have to waste time when finding your way to your new & old friends. They have also integrated online services such as a live traffic feed, unexpected incident reports, speed traps and a lot more.
The overall touchscreen scrolling in the map mode have also been upgraded and you can easily slide from one point to the other without the need of manual multiple scrolls. The maps for Sygic Mobile Maps 2010 have also been improved to included much more details than any of the Sygic Maps version we have seen. They have also included the automatic screen rotation from portrait to landscape mode which was previously absent in Sygic GPS.

Beside everything mentioned above Sygic Mobile Maps 2010 offers multiple voice navigation and comes multilingual by default. You can easily pin point any location and calculate various routes to that location from your position with just two or three clicks. The traffic data is taken from the local authorities and you can be sure that they are being updated by the minute. Sygic GPS can quickly give you instant demos of  the routes along with several alternate results in an automatic, profile based, route calculation that will display multiple routes for the same destination on your screen. All the results will include individual details such as the mode of transport, time frame, traffic level along with the speed and restrictions, ferries etc.
Two of the most awesome features in Sygic GPS 2010 are the ‘Incidents’ option and the ‘Speed Trap’ option. Incident points will display community shared incident points in your routes. Incident points are like bad roads or dangerous turns, high priced tolls and any custom community shared opinions about that place. Speed Traps are similar but even more smart to be honest. Speed Traps are community shared points where speeding your car may lead you earning a ticket in minutes. Both these option not only makes your life easier when taking a decision about multiple routes but it also helps you stay out of trouble. Lastly, it also includes a bunch of extra features such as a beautiful world clock, foreign exchange rate calculator, cam views etc.
For your convenience I have included two different versions of Sygic Mobile Maps 2010. One is the full version which is multilingual and includes the instructions with the guides. It supports all the Nokia/Samsung/SonyEricsson 3rd edition, 5th edition, Maemo, Symbian^3 OS, Android etc devices. The second one is the slim version which will only work with Symbian OS based Symbian 3rd edition & 5th edition smartphones and is only in English with no instructions and stuff. Remember, Sygic GPS maps are provided by Navteq just like that of Garmin.
