I'll see if Destinator stores thins on some CSV / GPX internally (Like Miero used by MMI). In that case you can edit that file on PC and transfer to cell.

EDIT : You can manually add POI via "My Locations" in Destinator. Data is stored in "destinator/userdata" folder. Try adding a couple and if it is stored as plain text, you can automate it easily.
Okay,

I remember I used poiedit long back, it seems thats the easier option avaiable now as well. I was able to drop the POIs using it. However it doesnt show roads out there - POIs are off-raod - they may not have those details added to the maps yet - though it will be handy/helpful in case we are lost during night hours or some odd locations.

Are you going to transform your car into a caravan?(the one, our film stars,mainly hero/ heroins use?). With lot of gadgets on board, are you going to concentrate on driving or enjoy with your ICE?

Not really, I am just trying to bind all them together. I know one of my friend has got a double din 7" LCD, then a separate rear camera / sensor and top of it MapMyIndia GPS Navigator all three at different place. Now these things are becoming more of a necessity.

In the first look the November '09 Satguide map showing some improvement. Ring roads are properly mapped. Have to really check what other improvements they have made.

Just to clarify - a separate camera /sensor at rear- you mean to say
reverse parking sensor which will be guided by a camera??

Actually I meant either a rear camera which will have a small screen pasted / stick somewhere at dashboard OR a parking sensors for which another rear view mirror will be clipped on existing one. In any case one will end up having different product and different place inside.

I rather trying to combine them all.

Okay, the systems seems good but then you need to fit a dvd player also?
Also, from the picture, the screen is blocking the centre A/C vent as well as almost 75% of the audio head?

Certainly you didn't clicked the link of Pioneer AVH-4150DVD which is a double din 7" LCD Audio Video media central which can replace the factory fitted ford's double din player as it is,

In summary it has got following features:
  • DivX/MP3/WMA/AAC playback on DVD and CD
  • RGB input 26 Pin: Connecting for Navigation
  • 3 RCA pre-outs: selectable (front + rear + subwoofer)
  • A/V inputs and outputs: - 1 RCA Audio/Video input - 1 RCA Video output [To this the video input of rear camera will do]
  • Front USB direct connection: USB 2.0 (full speed)
  • Direct connection for iPod and iPhone* (audio & video)
For more details click on the link.

Can you also check if the Bannerghatta, NICE road and the electronic city area links are mapped well?
I saw parallel roads between NICE road and Bannerghatta, which connect the NH7 through Electronic City campus.
The Satguide which I have, does not show these areas.

Today for the 1st time after i installed new MapMyIndia VX-140 into my ANHC went outside Bangalore. I went to Hassan and surrounding places. I left Bangalore early morning gave the route as Hassan via Magadi, Since i wanted to avoid nelmangala and its construction works. Magadi road was fully mapped and when i reached hassan i was surprised to see whole hassan city was fully mapped even small gullies, including the road at my home. This was not there in old Maps and in this new version they haven't mentioned hassan in mapped city list. I feel Now mapmyindia has mapped most districts Head quarters, really great going, i am impressed.
