As for google, we can't save the maps, neither can we trace pre-travelled routes.

But that's not the case NOW!
Log in to your customized Google Maps in https://mapsengine.google.com
Set you path, both origin and destination.

Drag routes to modify what Google maps suggest as default.

You can ADD/DROP MARKERS to set up detours in case the original routes are blocked, congested with traffic.

Give the map your own Title and Description.
Google as usual auto saves everything.

Now if you have a Android phone and Google account, open playstore and search for Map Engine.

Select this Google Maps Engine and download this.

Maps Engine will download and install on your cell. Open the installed application.
Select 'Open a Map' from menu.

Select your pre-saved map, the one we saved on PC.

There you have it, the same pre-saved map on your cell phone ready for navigation.
You are now free from the pain of re-routing on the move or while driving.
Hit the GPS pointer button, one on the lower right corner and have a blast.
This is a terrific piece of information. Thanks a lot for sharing this in such an illustrative manner.

Not much to share. The car is absolutely fine and niggle free. Did another Kolkata Delhi trip and return this October. Went to Delhi on 2nd October non stop once again, took me 20hrs. Return though was with a overnight break at Varanasi. Just wish Renault had released the AWD version back in 2012.

Face-palm to that.

Could you please share a wheel alignment report or two with me? Either here or in a PM.

Great to note this. Similar performances on my side too. I am at about 45K in about 2+ years. Nothing to complain. The only issue was with clutch slave cylinder which they fixed under warranty. Couple of niggles hear and there, but absolutely nothing to lament about. Pretty good service responses in Bangalore so far. On the tyres front, they look good for another 10-15K at least.

PS: On the AWD, I am still OK with the non-AWD version. May be would have take the 110 Version, with a better clutch and lag control. But still happy with the non-AWD version.

I am going to be gone for 5 weeks. I fill usually the air as suggested in Duster manual 29; is there a need to increase it to say 32 or something so it stays good for the 5 weeks? Is there a need to disconnect the battery for 5 weeks non-essential? Appreciate advice. Cheers

Five weeks is not much, your car will be exactly the way you have left it. Absolutely no need to disconnect the battery terminal. Tyre pressure of 29 to 30 is good. But do cover your car if its not under covered parking.
