Sygic and SKODA AUTO Volkswagen India Private Limited (SAVWIPL) have made agreements to integrate the Sygic GPS Navigation in SAVWIPL’s INDIA 2.0 cars and in future models until 2029. The first models with Sygic on board are SKODA KUSHAQ and SLAVIA as well as Volkswagen Taigun and Virtus.
Sygic is a leading car navigation app which is available on the Faurecia Aptoide Automotive App Store that provides carmakers and their customers a secure, connected, and upgradeable app store. The Faurecia Aptoide ecosystem already provides 200+ apps. Multiple OEMs have chosen as their app store solution.
Faurecia’s solution also powers VW Group’s MIB Regio infotainment platform. Thanks to this partnership, drivers will find Sygic GPS Navigation built-in and ready to go in all-new made-for-India SKODA and Volkswagen cars produced in India from 2021 to 2029.
The navigation works offline, and the user does not need a data connection to navigate. On the other hand, owners do not need a professional car service for regular app and map updates. Rather, they can update their navigation over the air by pairing it with their mobile device serving as a Wi-Fi hotspot.
