    Well I tried the Sygic 15.4.10 it was an utter disappointment, the software couldn't find the satellites no matter where it was. Also it would had trouble importing itn files from ITN converter so much for My route App
    some would load others disappeared in cyberspace or got lost in translation. So I uninstalled the thing and installed Map factor it works even better and it can find the sat's and I can use Map marker to plan a route.

    That is a very good question.

    The New UI interface has been a hit and miss since it came on the market back in June 2014.
    I do not see a light at the end of the tunnel any time soon for a final stable version.
    Some things work other things do not work.
    That all depends on what version you are using.
    What phone you have or Tablet.
    What version android you are using.
    If your phone or tablet is rooted or not.
    The list goes on and on.

    Some user say the last version is good others say v15.4.10

    Problem is there is no one version that is working the way a GPS app should at this time.

    I still use v14.3.4 of the old user interface. I fine it to very stable for what I use it for.
    It is very user friendly.

    But you can not get any new maps for it.
    The last one that will work is TomTom 2015.03
    The new maps will not work on this version.
    I fine this a big mistake on the part of Sygic.

    So there you have it.......

    Yes, there is an app on Play that will pull in a gpx file. Think it is called Route Importer for MapFactor. I tried MF and the importer. TERRIBLE routing engine. I asked for fastest route to Kansas City from where I am (600 miles). It gave me a weird route that was all over the place! No matter what settings I chose it gave me wonky routes. I used it once to navigate to my job...a trip I take every day. FAIL!!! And if you decide to not actually go past a waypoint, but to skip it, it will hound you forever until you actually go back to that waypoint. Totally not usable FOR ME! Your experience may be different.

    That really surprises me. I use a Galaxy Note 2 with Android 4.4.2 and Sygic works extremely well. I don't necessarily like the format of entering addresses (seems a lot of European built apps use this format though so it's probably just getting used to it) but other than that it is a wonderful app for me. Of course, coming from CoPilot and all its silly issues, most anything would seem better!
    Good luck with whatever you end up with.

    Oh, yeah...ITF Converter will export itn files in three different Sygic formats. The one I use is Sygic 13 & 14 and that one works well for me. Not for you?

    Taking another look at Sygic 15.4.6 but when I open Res folder there's no "itinerary folder" to paste the ITN what do I do with it?

    : so after all my whining about not finding the itinerary folder it suddenly surfaces, honest it was not there before. I will never ever get my mind around this android O/S it defies logic. So all is good again. My Route App and ITN converter are back in service, routes are being imported to Sygic. So why couldn't these GPS software people put some voice interactive features on software like Sygic. (eg.) "you have missed a waypoint, or you have not traveled over a portion of your route" "do you want to back track"? i'm sure that technology is available.
