Anyone has any update on Satguide One India Map. I spoke to someone there today and I was told that they have just launched a new version with updated map of All India highways and 31 cities and currently selling only through their website. Its costing Rs. 5000/-.
I also contacted Mapmyindia and saw a similar product with them also. Its costing 7000/- .
Also please, advise , is additional 2K for mapmyindia map is worth it. I will be using it simply for mapping directions and routing on highways. ( very little off road, if at all)

Could some expert / user please help me in deciding which map to but ( satguide or mapmy india). I ll be using it on a WM5 device with inbuilt gps and currently using Mapking Pro with Mumbai map. Since, its restricted only to Mumbai, I need to update and buy an all India Map.

Couple of days back, Satguide sent me the One India Map for free as I was an existing (and repeat) customer. Pretty happy with it so far. All India coverage seems to be limited to National highways in general, though peripheral roads around the cities are covered. State highways are not covered. Going by the maps mapmyindia supply to Yahoo India Maps, I think they do cover state highways, but SH coverage are horribly inaccurate.

Posting a screenshot of One India to give you an idea of the coverage.

Seems quite a good coverage except for some border areas that are militarily and strategically sensitive..

I got it too - and I'm not even a 'customer' because they'd refunded my money. I've downloaded it and added it to my phone, which now features quite a few maps for a device whose primary function is not navigation!

I had placed order for Satguide- One India map. Today , I have received the activation keys and licence for the maps and installed the same. One India Map is okay for highway navigation- strangely, I couldnot locate Ganpatipule or for that matter even Ratnagiri on the map nor Bhimashankar, though many small towns are seen, probably, all along the national highways. Anyone can share his experience with One India map , please.

If you have a GPS enabled phone like E90, try Navizon - Virtual GPS for mobile devices and laptop computers.

Is Satguide bluetooth receiver with all india map worth buying for 8200/-?

Does it work well with HTC Touch?

Can anyone suggest where can I get best price in Bangalore?

Default cheaper bluetooth GPS recievers

Cheaper bluetooth GPS recievers are available with ebay.in.

you can even try the free trial version of wayfinder navigator with all india and city map with most of the mobiles, including HTC.

I bought bluetooth receiver finally and it is working amazingly well. Has details of even very small roads in Bangalore. Voice guidance is great except for over the speed limit warnings even at speed below 30 kmph.

Guys

I have been cheated here. TimesofIndia have been repeatedly selling the same package for Rs. 5000

I went through this thread and have got lot of GPS map softwares. Before, I used google maps, very good but no route finder. Have mapking which came with the phone but it is worst, looking for an accurate one. I will try out the maps mentioned here.

I am using a Nokia N95 handset. I am aware that Satguide does not support Symbian series 60 phones like mine. But can I use A-GPS maps application as effectively as you'll have been using satguide. Please advise.

Some of the softwares mentioned does not support India maps.

Is there any map naviation available for free trial with the accuracy of Google maps & route Navigation ?
