    Default Which Sygic version is best?

    This is a poll about which Sygic (not SygicTruck nor SygicTaxi) is best. Take into account the following: stability, lack/lost of function, new features/enhancement, and map versions.

    Sygic 14.3.4 was the best version Sygic had with much better reliability. Search was highly customizable with simple navigation.

    New UI is more confusing, Search is terrible, , GPS locking issue in most 15.x versions while still 14.x locks quickly on same Samsung Galaxy S3 set.

    The only reason I upgraded to 15.x is to have new MAPS [06-2015] for Pakistan. If somehow new map could work with 14.x version, I will switch to old UI instantly

    The old version was easy to use, user friendly. I believe, with their new GUI, they have lost a lof users, including me

    Sygic went down the wrong path with the New UI.
    They should of stayed with the 14.3.x series and improved on it.

    You can not compare the new UI to the old UI.
    It does no come close to a stable GPS app.
    The old UI could be customized to your liking.
    You could add your own voices to any warnings.
    Edit and change Icons to your poi's you added.
    The list goes on and on.

    You can not say that about the new UI.
    They removed everything that user's liked.


    Why they went down this path is anyone's question.

    To cut off use's of the Older UI to use new maps is one of their biggest mistakes.

    Plus if you look at other GPS apps they all work on most Android versions.

    The new UI cut off a lot of use's with older phones and tablets.

    You need a phone or tablet with min version 4.0 of Android.

    Let's not forget the impact a new major software version has on the hardware of your (older) device.

    Software developers tend to develop their new versions on the latest hardware specs, meaning: more CPU and RAM, better and faster offload to the graphical CPU is needed by the new software to build up and refresh screens, reading maps, make recalculations, usw. This is not a specific Sygic thingy, it works that way in the software development business.

    I see many differences in how Sygic 15.x.x performs on my HTC Desire X (from 2012) and on my Samsung Galaxy S6. Apart from all problems and unresolved bugs, the Samsung runs smoothly as may be expected, the HTC struggles its way through processing everything that is needed to present some sort of a navigational action.
    Off course there may be minimum device specs for Sygic's software versions, but as usual, these do not live up to real world expectations.
