    Pretty good database of locations.

    I like the tag search

    It's pretty fast

    It's easy to pull images from Flickr/Wikimedia to add


    Lots of places still don't have photos and have only one tag which makes them hard to discover

    No satellite view

    Very few reviews

    Just yesterday I was looking for a new maps alternative to try and break away from Google. I stumbled upon Sygic but didn't give it a fair shot so now that it's here I tried again and I have to say, it's better than I expected. I am currently travelling in Slovenia so I guess it's not the most used country for the moment. Anyhow, there are quite a few things that I like but I think there's definitely room for improvement. I would love to be able to see a satellite view(I use it often to know if where I'm going there's parking or other features that are not on the map), it's important that I can at least suggest adding/removing tags. Here many waterfalls are categorised only as that, while I think they should have at least the sightseeing tag too. It's the first tag in your search box, if I use it and this great places don't appear I will just think that you are very bad and move on(that's what happened yesterday). Reviewing is as painless as it gets which is nice.

    Last but quite amazing if possible, would be a way to import lists from google maps or other services. I have over 600 stars on google maps which make it quite complex to move away. Having an export would be great too.

  • Pros: 

    Looks are okay


    Many, many mistakes when nabigatinh

    First installed it in 2012, the first route was a big deviation. Uninstalled it immediately. Yesterday (6 years later) installed it again and today uninstalled it. The looks are great, but it makes to many mistakes. 7 within 4km: 1.wants me to go in a street that's closed because of a new sewer (1 or 2 months already). 2.the next street is missing on the map. That's why I must turn. 3. On a main street I must go right to take a street just for bikes. 4. Sygic tell me to go across a parking lot because it's shorter (but much longer. Glad I didn't have my Mobil home with me). 5.Sygic wants me to drive into a one way street, that's not allowed for me. 6. It wants me to take the bus lane and 7. It tells me that close to a roundabout is a Speedcam. But there hasn't been one, never. This all happens within 10 minutes in 3 to 4 kms. I am cured and try Sygic in 2024 again.

I used Google My Maps for this for my recent trip to London, but I like the focus here. Reminds me RoadTripper.
Looks great! The domain + subdomain seems kind of impossible to remember though.

This looks great! full of useful data. I can think of several more ways to use this data though, one of which was part of a Startup Weekend project that I was part of. I noticed that you have a B2B solutions offering. Could you explain a bit more about the data structure and API and costs associated? I like transparency and hate it when all I see on a page like that is "Get in touch". Makes me feel as though I am about to get ripped off by a sales person.

@colinwinhall Hi Colin, thanks a lot! We provide the access to the data via API or as a data file, there are over 24 million POIs in our database. For popular places you would get data about location, place description, photos, 360° videos, opening hours, admission fees, contact information, tags etc. The places are ranked by popularity and they are categorized. You can find the API documentation at Pricing is available at If you want to try the API out, just drop me a line at and I will send you a test API key (and I promise there will be no ripping off by a sales person ;-).
