Ovi Maps in India does lack maps for highway driving around India, when I took it for a road trip. I just got a blank background on Ovi Maps for most areas outside the major city limits and Google Maps died on me when ever I went out of cellphone tower ranges. Satguide has maps for more than 400 cities and towns around India, so you’re adquately covered if you’re planning to go off the beaten track.
SatGuide is currently offering a Cash Back offer to the users downloading free version from www.satguide.in. If you choose to upgrade to the paid version of the software within 30 days of the downloading the free version, you’ll get Rs. 1000 back from the company, which translates to almost a 50% discount on the regular price.
