I know google maps is a good resource, but I have grown above it.
I have seen the threads.... They look like a little old though...
I also saw mapmyindia but it seems like an expensive solution to begin with..
if you are looking for rambling through South Delhi looking for D 06 in GH I. My phone apps were defeated by that challenge.
I see no reason why an Android phone or tablet can't take you, or at least help you to get, absolutely anywhere, but there are lots of places where it will not replace maps, charts, and other methods of navigation.
I couldn't find the right sub forum to post this and hence I landed in Chai and chat.
I wish to buy a GPS and wanted to use it in India. I know google maps is a good resource, but I have grown above it.
Could anyone let me know the experience of which GPS to get. I can get it from US as well, as well as from here.
I have heard Garmin as one of the good brands for GPS, but never used any.
I am agree with you that GPS are some thing different from Google Maps.
Can you specify how?
Google Maps is but one mapping/GPS piece of software (app). It relies, for position finding and navigation, on the underlying hardware of the phone or tablet. That is GPS.
Functionality or ease of use may differ with different boxes. I'm interested to know why you prefer Garmin etc? Also, what kind of navigation you do with it? road base? or off-road?
