Real View Navigation is a feature that is included in the Premium+ subscription, that will enable a new and unique method of displaying your route and navigation instructions. This technology is also known as „Augmented Reality“ or AR, and while some other apps have used it for different purposes, Sygic is the first to bring it to navigation. Real View works anywhere in the world, it doesn’t have any special requirements for your device to be able to use it, and it works offline so no internet connection is required.
Instead of the classic view where you see the route on a map, Real View draws the line of the route directly over a live image of the road ahead of you which is captured by the camera of your phone or tablet. You just have to place your device so its rear camera has a clear view forward through your windshield.
A major advantage of this mode, is that you can still see what is happening on the road before you, even during moments while you are glancing at the screen of your device.
How to use Real View Navigation
To switch to the Real View mode, create a route and start navigation, then press the Real View button in the app’s Quick Menu, which you access by tapping on the 3 dots icon in the bottom right corner of the map. Press the Real View button in the Quick Menu again later to return to the classic map view.
