    Maybe it would be the best way to find out what is the difference in new maps, convert them into old format and use v.14.3.4.
    All testing of millions 15.5.xxxxxxxxxxx versions is useless, because idiots in Sygic team donīt give a **** of users complaints and propositions.

    No doubt that Sygic has tried to add new functionalities to version after 14.x such as speedcam, 3d building, elevation/height field, routing and searching changes. And I'm sure these "new functionalities" would be more effectively handled (if done correctly) on newer devices using newer capabilities. But it's not going to help me one bit if it doesn't work. I would rather have a way to "disabled" them and have a good core engine running. If you're not capable of implementing it effectively, then don't get rid of existing product that has proven to work. Why not have two streams of development? Have support group to fix existing product and have developing group to create new product. When new product is good*, then you get rid of existing product. And of course, use common sense, you don't remove existing functions unless you're going to replace with something that's at least better. Having a new and fancy product that works on new devices while failed on older devices** (that used to work), is just bad!

    * I don't consider having a fix every week a good product.
    ** With less memory or lower resolution.

    I think it all has to do with cheap development cycles and time-to-market idiocy.
    Sygic still has to find out that this way of working costs far more than hiring one or more additional servicedesk employees.

    If you take the time to look at the "compatibility_table" you will see something add at the bottom of the list.

    aka whitelist / blacklist

    Here is a break down of that list.

    Amazon:
    SD4930UR" name="Fire Phone"

    Google:
    Nexus 4
    Nexus 5
    Nexus 6
    Nexus 7

    Samsung:
    GT-I9100" name="Galaxy S II"
    GT-I9300" name="Galaxy S III"
    GT-I8730" name="Galaxy Express"
    GT-I9505" name="Galaxy S4"
    GT-N7000" name="Galaxy Note"
    SM-G900F" name="Galaxy S5"
    SM-G920F" name="Galaxy S6"
    SM-G925F" name="Galaxy S6 edge"
    GT-I9195" name="Galaxy S4 Mini"

    HTC:
    "HTC One"
    "HTC One M8"
    "HTC One X"
    "HTC Sensation Z710e"
    "HTC Desire HD A9191"
    "HTC Desire HD"


    LG:
    "LG-D855" name="LG G3"
    "LG-H815" name="LG G4"

    Huawei:
    "U9200" name="Huawei Ascend P1"


    Sony:
    "C5303" name="Xperia SP"
    "C6833" name="Xperia Z Ultra"
    "D5803" name="Xperia Z3 Compact"


    This was added from v15.5.1 on.


    </item>
    </whitelisted_devices>

    <blacklisted_devices>
    <!--
    <item model="Default" name="Windows device"/>
    <item model="Nexus 5"/>
    -->
    </blacklisted_devices>

    <blacklisted_renderers>
    <item>vivante</item>
    </blacklisted_renderers>

    </compatibility_table>





    I do not know what Sygic is meaning with Whitelist and Blacklist.

    If they are going to start excluding some Phones and Tablets they are then crazy.

    Also many users are reporting after updating to Android version 6 Sygic will not work anymore.

    I have check all the big GPS apps and they all will work with older phones and tablets.

    That covers TomTom, Navigon, MapFactor Navigator, Osmand+ just to name a couple.

    If they can come up with a product that works on most Android platforms then Sygic should do the same.

    Adding all the items most if not all user's will never use is just the biggest waste of resources for a GPS app.

    They need to take the fat out out of their app and make the damm thing work.
    This has gone on far to long.

    What was routing like in that version? At this moment it is the worst routing I have ever seen, similar to NAVIGON. Was it like SYGIC TRUCK? GUI matters but routing is the most important.

    I agree 100%. Tested and confirmed. SYGIC TRUCK has no competition.

    In the file "compatibility_table" devices are not excluded.
    Its function is some sort of upper-layer where values for framebufferformats are being given to objects in the CoreImage Namespace, depending on devicetype.
    Some functions are excluded since the hardware does not support certain exotic or very new features.
    Probably to prevent it from endless loops or even crashing.

    That is not what I said.

    It is the info added to the bottom of the list that is new since v15.5.1.

    aka whitelist / blacklist



    If you look at older "compatibility_table" you will not see it before v15.5.1

    Transparency is lacking all the way around with Sygic.

    This is what I mean about transparency:

    Additional information
    Updated
    October 28, 2015
    Size
    Varies with device <-----what devices ???? and what version of Android ???
    Current Version
    Varies with device <-----what devices ???? and what version of Android ???
    Requires Android
    Varies with device <-----what devices ???? and what version of Android ???


    With so many user's having one problem and another.

    They need to list what versions works with what devices and what Android versions.


    transparency!! transparency!! transparency!!

    Yea, the "Varies with device" is worthless info at best and use as a catch all (and lazy) way of doing thing. Forces the user to installed just to find out if it works. Also "Fixed various bugs."
