This review is for version 188.8.131.52 of Sygic's Mobile Maps app for the iPhone, which adds a whole bunch of minor fixes and fiddles, as well as text-to-speech, support for contact list addresses and, Sygic claims, better GPS positioning. As before it includes maps for both Australia and New Zealand; testing was performed entirely in Australia.
If you're familiar with portable nav devices from TomTom, Mio, Garmin, et al, you'll feel instantly at home with Mobile Maps. Tap on the map and you'll be brought to a main menu chock full of big friendly icons laid out in a very familiar fashion, with destination entry, map browsing and configuration all featured on the first menu screen.
Features that the iPhone has popularised, like swipe to scroll and multi-touch zooming, are notable for their absence. That said, Mobile Maps is quick to detect screen orientation changes, adjusting itself to match in double-quick time — in this respect it puts the standard Safari browser to shame. Switching between day and night modes occurs automatically too.
