I noticed most instructions tell us not to use Sygic whilst online. I accidentally left my wifi connected when opening Sygic last night, and dam, padlocks appeared on some of the features!
What I have done is created a hosts file that will block all the outgoing data to Sygic (this took a lot of packet sniffing to see all the servers sygic would connect to when launching there's 200+ entries). With this, you can be online and you will not lose access to any patched features. Keep in mind you will also have no access to any online features, such as traffic, map downloads/updates, voice downloads etc.
Do not use this if you have a purchased version of sygic!
For fun I have also bundled this list with the awesome (MoaAB) Mother of All AD-BLOCKING list.
You have two files, choose 1 and copy it to /etc/ (check the current permissions and be sure to duplicate them to the new file.
sygic only: blocks sygic servers
sygic with adblocking: blocks sygic and 368000 known advertising urls
you will need ROOT access to do so. Also reboot for it to take effect.
Now you have every ad blocked, and Sygic blocked from Internet access without requiring any additional applications to be running and consuming resources!
