Smartphone have replaced many devices— including small cameras, notebooks, voice recorders, portable stereo systems and one such is standalone navigation with plethora of smartphone navigation apps. The concept of finding an unknown place has got much easier than before while exploring new places. So is it safe to say smartphones have replaced the standalone navigation device?
“Standalone GPS devices are simply more convenient to use. You can rely on these devices, without the problem of data connectivity”. Shivalik Prasad, Executive Director, MapmyIndia, informs “There are still a lot of customers who want a product that’s fit for one purpose, i.e. showing maps and guiding you to your destination. You can use your phone too for navigation, but a device is more convenient to use. So don’t dismiss car GPS devices yet!
