GPS, are we mature enough yet?
I was just looking into a few sites like GPS India - GPS, Aviation, Marine, Handheld, Navigation, Binoculars, Compass, Windwatch, etc which talk about many GPS systems for cars, motorcycles, or on phones etc. It says india, but it doesnt show whats really available in india.
Also Garmin/Nippon are the only ones I hear that are available in the indian market. Now how much of details they show on their systems is a different story altogether. Is the indian government doing anything at all, to improve the naviagation systems available here and are they doing a detailed geo mapping of the streets in our country at all?
Whether we need a GPS is one thing, but if they provide us a GPS with features such as traffic density real time update, and best path calculation between locations based on this, it should be a boon. This will be the next best thing from either the mobile revolution or the highway upgradation schemes taken up so far.

This is a classic case of one man's treasure being another's junk. GPS can not be classified completely under junk in an Indian context, but comes mighty close.

Perhaps, and only for the time being, in the AUTO "sense" GPS may not be mighty useful but there are very many areas where GPSs are a boon.
Having used GPSs for well over 12 years, when I read "GPS" and "Junk" in one sentence, just could not keep myself out! Sorry, no offences.
