Hey .. I understood you picked these as part of long drive preparation,
but was just wondering whether we discussed this in recent while.

Anyways, coming to your question .. you should look to assort the items that you think would be more likely to be needed.
Having said that the more things you can acquire/arrange, the better it is.

From that point of view, I would place things like - a good GPS device, a tyre inflator, and puncture repair kit what you mentioned on this stretch.

Jits .. has your trip been done?

Got to hear from a fellow BHPian about Hotel Khan Chacha at Solapur (on left side just before you take right turn to bypass for Pune/Mumbai).

Would like to hear your experience otherwise?

My wife and I are planning to drive from Hyderabad to Mahabaleshwar and back next month. As I don't have too much long distance driving experience and since the resort where we are booked has odd check in/out timings, we have decided to stop overnight at Solapur on both the outward and inward legs of the jouorney.

Planning to use Google Maps to navigate and the app offers two alternatives from Hyderabad to Solapur; one route via Zaheerabad/Humnabad and the other via Sadem/Akkalkot. Similarly, for the Solapur to Mahabaleshwar leg, there is a choice between driving via Baramati or through Pandharpur and Satara.

I was wondering which is the best route to and fro, with reference to the current road conditions. Also can I have recommendations regarding a hotel in Solapur.

I did this last year. The road till Solapur wasn't great, I did that stretch in 6 hours on my i10. Wasn't bad, wasn't fun either.

On the other side of solapur we took Pune highway, easily the best road I have used. There were points where construction was going on, should be done by now.

I just followed the map google maps suggestions, was on bsnl and it worked almost all the way.

My suggestion : Hyderabad ORR (APPA Junction) - Chilkur Temple - Pargi - Sedam - Gulbarga - Bijapur - Athani - Sangli/Miraj - Islampur - Satara - Mahabaleshwar. Night halt can be Gulbarga / Bijapur / Sangli/Miraj depending on starting time.

Thanks for sharing your experience, but I am not clear which route you took; via Zaheerabad or via Sedam.

I agree that its one of the best highways, but seems to take for ever to get completed. I drove on this highway way back in June 2014 and whilst most of it was ready there were quite a few diversions because of work in progress. A year later it still seemed incomplete.

Seems a longer route traveling via Bijapur - Athani - Sangli/Miraj - Satara. Any particular reason for recommending the same. What about Gulbarga to Solapur?

Longer is terms of distance.
Shorter in terms of ease of driving due to good road conditions and better for your car.
But, mind you, it is essentially a 2 laned undivided highway till after Islampur and again from Satara onwards.
Also, getting lost due to wrong turns is highly possible as you will be on country side roads.
Mobike008 used this route during his recent bike ride.

I am planning to use Google Maps to navigate, so it essentially boils down to the reliability of the app to see me through the countryside. Is it a risk?

Can't seem to locate Mobike008's post giving details of his recent bike ride. Can you help by sending me the link. Thanks

He mentions "motorcycle" in this post. He has done it, trust me.

The post below that one shows the gulbarga route from hyd to solapur. (until the highway is done)

From solapur, the preferred route is via pandharpur (detour from highway at Mohol) - Mhaswad - Satara - Mahaby.
