Sygic GPS Navigation now available on Visteon’s AllGo App Store

Sygic, a provider of navigation applications for consumers and
professionals, has partnered up with Visteon, an automotive cockpit
electronics supplier, to provide drivers with a new digital in-car
experience.

Not long ago, cars did what they were initially made for: drive you from one
place to another. Then we got functionalities that made driving much more
comfortable, safe, and fun, such as AC, seatbelts, parking sensors, airbags,
or driver assistance. Although cars have come a long way, there’s still a
way to improve to meet drivers’ ever-growing demands. They no longer want
sluggish, buggy infotainment systems with cluttered or underwhelming
graphics. They want something fast and fluid — a happy medium between too
much and too little.

Automakers need to compete with the industry’s best, and technology
providers are here to deliver. Android Automotive OS is a promising platform
for a new, intuitive, distraction-free experience. Although AAOS includes
options for data connections, Sygic stores the maps locally to limit data
usage and function correctly, even with limited or no internet coverage.

Once car manufacturers realize the potential and deem it safe to open up to
deep integration with the vehicle’s systems, app developers can offer much
more.

“Sygic is eager to provide functionality such as the state of charge in
electric vehicles. Car owners will see how much charge will be left once
they arrive at the destination, get prompted when there’s not enough charge
left, and show them charging stations on the route so they can reserve a
spot in advance,” says Martin Elexa, Automotive Business Development
Executive at Sygic.

Sygic is also awaiting the green light to integrate with built-in cameras
for sign recognition and proximity warnings or to stream navigation into the
instrument cluster to enhance the driving experience.

The Visteon AllGo App Store meets the growing global demand for safe and
convenient access to app-based content in a smart, connected cockpit.
Leveraging Visteon’s pioneering work in in-vehicle infotainment, the Visteon
AllGo App store features a variety of automotive-optimized mobility,
navigation, parking and infotainment apps.

“The addition of Sygic GPS Navigation to the Visteon AllGo App Store
provides automakers with a robust navigation solution that brings new,
connected features for vehicles,” said Rishita Bachu, Global Head of
Connected Services Ecosystem, Visteon. “We are proud to add this new app
featuring intuitive navigation packed with smart functionality and show it
to our industry partners during CES® 2023.”
