MapmyIndia Sygic Mobile Maps Application

MapmyIndia and Europe based navigation software provider Sygic have come together to launch 'MapmyIndia Sygic Mobile Maps' to convert GPS-enabled mobile phones into GPS navigators, allowing seamless travel anywhere in India. The application uses existing MapmyIndia maps and Sygic software to offer an intuitive GPS navigation solution for mobile phones.

MapMyIndia assures that the application does NOT require GPRS data connection or cellular network to operate and for the same reason, will not result in the user ending up with inflated bills. Additionally, the application supports a wide variety of platforms -- including Windows Mobile, Symbian, Android and the iPhone. It also supports live, turn-by-turn voice and map instructions.

The application can be purchased through the MapmyIndia web shop or by calling MapmyIndia Customer Care on 09999333223/4. MapmyIndia will ship a CD, through which users can install the application and maps on their phone. There is a one time charge of Rs. 2,490 - the only charge you will ever pay for this. iPhone users can purchase and download the 'mobile maps India' application at price of US $79.99 from the iTunes app store.

The application boasts of detailed, comprehensive maps of over 401 cities across India with street-level turn-by-turn directions, as well as national, state and district highways. There is also a neat integration of information set on points of interest like budget/premium hotels, petrol pumps, eating joints, ATMs, hospitals as well as tourist and religious spots. Its very interesting feature is its synchronization abilities with the phone's contact list and the address list using which you can get turn by turn directions to your contact's home or office!
