    Guide Enable “Write to SD Card” - KitKat - LoliPop

    I hope this will help other members to solve their SD above 4.3 OS issue.


    OPTION 1
    0. After you finish installing Sygic try going to Application manager and find SYGIC app.
    Try Move to SD card option.
    Sygic will move everything to:
    SD CARD/Android/data/com.sygic.truck or android/data/com.sygic.aura/files/
    So simply open this folder and add your maps.

    OPTION 2: ROOTED DEVICE Credits to @Chaotix

    Step 1
    get all your maps and app from this url
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Step 2
    Connect your phone to PC in USB File Sharing mode. Copy the gps zip file and the apk into your internal phone memory. If you are installing the TripAdvisor Addon copy that zip on there aswell.

    Step 3
    Once its on there extract the zip file into the SDCard folder (also known as SDCard0 in RAW system) of your system. If you are installing TripAdvisor Addon extract that folder also and merge the folders that you extracted with the folders you extracted from the original zip files (three folders will need merging, Android, Maps and Res). Install the apk by enabling 3rd party apps in settings but don't run the app.

    Step 4
    Move the maps folder to externalSD/Sygic/Maps. This is the storage path of the Maps on your SD Card. If you are doing the whole world you'll probably need about 14gb of free space. Move the whole world map into this folder on your SD Card.

    Step 5
    Edit the settings.ini file in the folder SDCard/Sygic/Android/settings.ini. Go these lines.

    ; Path to folder with Maps
    m_strSetMapPath=/../Maps

    ; Path to folder with Content Informations (content.info, content.lic, footprint.info)
    m_strSetContentPath=/../Maps

    Here change the path to your external SD. So instead of "/../Maps" for me was this /../../../externalSD/Sygic/Maps.

    Step 6
    Run Sygic and enjoy free World GPS Map on your mobile android
    NOTE: credits to: @Brown Dog
    content.lic file will convert the app to trial and will appear in the phone when you download maps with WiFi. You must use the PC downloader. Delete content.lic file

    OPTION 3. NON-Rooted Device - SYGIC OFFICAL

    1. Please download the latest version of Sygic GPS navigation from the Google play store.

    2. Cut and paste the existing Sygic folder from the internal memory onto the external SD card. Please make sure that no Sygic files or folders remain in the internal memory.

    3. Launch sygic and you should see a message about the need to copy the files to a new folder. Tap ok and sygic will copy the necessary files into android/data/com.sygic.aura/files/ folder automatically. When its done, the app should start correctly.

    4. Now you can delete the remaining Sygic folder from the main external SD card folder as it was already copied into android/data/com.sygic.aura/files/ on your SD card.
    Please do NOT move the Sygic folder directly into Android/data/com.sygic.aura folder. Sygic needs to create this folder and recreate the Sygic files.

    On some devices our initialization files are changed to text files. In that case please change core3d.ini.txt and settings.ini.txt files name to core3d.ini and settings.ini via Android/data/com.sygic.aura/files/Android

    OPTION 4. - NON-Rooted - Enable “Write to SD Card”
    1. Dowload Android SDK zip file
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    2. Once the download finishes, unzip the package to a location of your choosing.

    3. The next thing you’ll need to do is enable Developer Options on your Android device.
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    4. Make sure that Developer Options are enabled on your Android device and that the USB Debugging option is marked.

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    5. Connect your phone to your PC using the USB cable. If it’s the first time you’re doing this, make sure to wait while all of the drivers are installed automatically. When that’s done, make sure you set your Android connection to “Charge Only”, or anything other than “USB Storage”.

    6. Open up the Android SDK folder you unzipped. If you do not see a platform-tools folder then you’ll need to open the SDK Manager application. It will retrieve a list of the necessary packages in order to use the tools you need. From the list make sure to select Android SDK Platform Tools. All the rest are optional. Once you select the appropriate packages, click on Install packages, accept the terms and click on Install again.

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    7. Now you should see the platform-tools folder. If you’re on a Mac then just right-click on the platform-tools folder and select “New terminal at folder”.
    If you’re on Windows open up the platform-tools folder and from there press Shift and then right- click and select “Open command window here”.

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    8. A command window will pop up. Type in the following commands:

    For Windows: adb devices

    For Mac: ./adb devices

    9. You should see the name of your attached Android device right under. If it shows up, type in the following:

    For Windows: adb shell pm set-install-location 2
    adb shell pm get-install-location

    For Mac: ./adb shell pm set-install-location 2
    ./adb shell pm get-install-location

    10. If you did it right the final output in the console window should say: 2 [external]

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    That’s it! You are now able to write all your data or apps directly into your SD card and take advantage of all that extra space. Enjoy!

    NOTE:
    If you’re not comfortable with that setup (for performance reason), you can always revert to using the primary storage location by using the command: adb shell pm set-install-location 1

    DISCLAIMER: Rooting or changing your device will/may void your warranty, and can be dangerous. You may end up with a “bricked” device if anything goes wrong. I take no responsibility if something happens to your device. If you are ever in doubt STOP! This is not something to take lightly.

    I have found another way for Sygic to work on devices with Lollipop on external SD Card, in my case HTC One M9.

    Copy your Sygic folder to the external SD Card, install everything what you need and put apk on external SD Card but not in a folder.
    Now install your apk and that's it.
    In case if you have new version of Sygic just install over the old version, run and wait to download some files from Play Store and that's it!

    Same thing with SygicTruck, always install apk from external SD Card but must to know is that SygicTruck folder you can find on your external SD Card in Android / data/ com.sygic.truck / files / SygicTruck
    Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe.

    Why not use the Downloader you get the latest content.info when you pick the maps you want.

    Take the time to search for the latest downloader for maps it is here.


    Under the map section.

    @ Texas,

    You did a great job with info but no user is going to read all of that.

    They do not even search for info let alone read it.

    Unfortunately you may be right but in the end we do not this for those who do not read, but for those who go extra mile to learn/fix something. I am in love with GPS systems and I do read everything and still I only managed to learn maybe 5% of it. I just wish I had more time to go though every post. I guess I learn along the way, but this forum is some sort of BIBLE so it takes time to read everything or to find what we need. I personally believe that 99% of issues and questions can be found here. Sometimes when I need to fix something for me or smb else I am wiling to go though the sea of posts. I guess it is just about the will. Those who do not read wander in the darkness waiting for ready to use products which are in abundance here

    For users who want full control of their Phone or Tablet you might want to try KingRoot

    As pointed out by "Texas"
