Sygic North America: GPS Navigation gets a new HUD in its latest update, helping drivers keep their eyes on the road by displaying the new heads-up display on their windshields. The HUD is available as an in-app purchase for $4.99 and features live traffic and turn-by-turn voice guidance.

“As we head into the heavy travel season, we hope our HUD will help drivers stay safe on the roads so they can spend more time with their family and friends and less time driving down heavily-trafficked and dangerous winter road conditions.” said Sygic CEO, Michal Štencl, in a press release.

Family: GPS Tracker Lets Parents Track Their Child’s Location in Real-Time

Sygic, the leader in GPS navigation, has a new way for parents to track their kids. Family: GPS Tracker lets parents view their kids location in real-time to make sure they are safe and not moving into dangerous situations. It also comes just in time for Halloween, so parents will know where their smartphone-carrying kids are located throughout a night full of trick-or-treating.

“The proliferation of smartphone ownership across all age groups means that parents now have a great new way to ensure their children’s safety”, Sygic CEO Michal Štencl said in a press release. “We were able to apply the knowledge and experience we’ve gained from making a first-class navigation app in order to build Family: GPS Tracker, and our new version gives parents more control, with cool features like challenges that makes the app fun for kids as well.”

Last week, I worked my way through all of the currently available iPhone on-board GPS applications. I stuck with just the applications that held all of the maps on-board — meaning that you didn’t need to have a network connection to use the maps or routing. CoPilot came out as our winner as it has the best features, though some very confusing, for it’s price.

But we thought it would be a good idea to do a re-cap and compare all 5 of the GPS I looked at last week and include the first iPhone GPS application, G-Map.
