Delhi, India: MapmyIndia has launched Road Pilot, a GPS navigator pre-loaded with maps of 620 Indian cities, 576,000 towns and villages, 30,000 tourist locations and 2 million unique destinations. It provides information about hotels, tourist locations, ATMs, petrol pumps and eating joints as well. With 3.5 inch wide touch screen, it gives turn-by-turn voice assistance. It has embedded snooze feature to save power. When not in use, it can be put to sleep mode. Neither SIM card nor GPRS connection is required for this GPS navigator.
Since the device does not depend on mobile network coverage, it offers an ‘always on’ GPS navigation experience, even in places where a mobile phone GPS navigation (which relies on GPRS) would have failed because of patchy or even non-existent network coverage.
For those looking to add the benefits of GPS navigation to their overall driving experience, the navigator comes with all necessary utilities require to install it in a car, including car mount and car charger.
Rakesh Verma, MD, MapmyIndia, said, ” With the launch of Road Pilot, MapmyIndia has entered a new market for GPS navigators. The new navigator offers all the features of a sophisticated GPS navigator along with India’s best and most accurate maps. Road Pilot has covered another milestone in MapmyIndia’s pursuit for excellence and innovation.”
