Feedback from one of our Customers

Dear All,

One of our customers wrote to us regarding his experience. We would like to share his experience with all of you. Here it is.

I recently went on a 10,000 kms road trip covering the periphery of India starting from Chennai. Our high level route was Chennai – Rameswaram – Kanyakumari – Kerala – Tumkur – Pune – Mumbai – Amhedabad – Rajkot – Jamnagar – Dwarka – Jaisalmer – Sri Ganganagar – Chandigarh – Manali – Agra – Dhanbad – Kolkata – Bhubaneswar – Puri/ Konark – Vishakapatnam – Chennai.

Just before starting our journey on 3rd September, I bought a Road Pilot GPS from your dealer in Chennai. I would like to thank and congratulate you on a great great product. The GPS device is fantastic (connects quickly, very accurate to probably 10meters or so and has lots of very good features). More importantly, the maps are out of the world and far exceeded my expectation. All that I was hoping for when I bought the GPS was all national highways and important state highways, but I was surprised to see details of small towns in addition to all highways, roads in all towns we drove through, etc – e.g. I was in a small town Morbi in Gujarat, in a lane where only one car could go and even there, the maps had all the details and was telling me to take the next left!! :-)

I was amazed to say the least It’s one thing for US to have such detailed maps – many companies have been working on it for years. It’s truly great for India to have such detailed maps with great details and very accurate points of interests too. I have used GPS maps in US and in South East Asia (Singapore, Malaysia) and would say that MayMyIndia GPS machine and the maps are the best that I have seen to date.
We did 10,066 kms in 18 days (3rd to 20th September) and I would sincerely thank Map My India and assert that I probably couldn’t have done it without my “road pilot”. It gave me the confidence of driving through state highways even at 1am at night as I knew I was on the right road.

Hats off to the team at Map My India and many thanks for the great product. Wishing mapmyindia all the success and I will be more than happy to provide a testimonial if required. I will also include a section on mapmyindia GPS on the trip blog that is being developed currently and v1.0 should be out by next week!

Anupam Thanks  for such a great feedback.

Feedback From One Of Our Customers

One of our customers Mr Gopal shared his unique feedback with us that is something we would like to share with everyone. So here it is.

Mr. Gopal calls MapmyIndia’s navigation device a god sent, life saver. And with good reason too :
Mr. Karthik Gopal, a financial consultant from Bangalore along with his wife planned on a trip from Bangalore to Mantralaya, wanting to visit the famed Raghevendra Swamy temple situated there. A distance of 407 kms from Bangalore, the couple took off to the holy abode in their car equipped with MapmyIndia’s navigator to show the way.

But as luck would have it, it started raining and it did not take long for the torrential rains to take a menacing shape. By then it had turned dark, their car was stuck and they had no idea of which way to go.

It was in such circumstances that MapmyIndia’s navigation device saved the day.  It guided them across routes and streets with its clear directions and soon they were able to reach the safety of the temple.

And so the navigator became the very face of faith for him and his wife.

If you have such an experience : share it with us so that we can share it with everyone.

MapmyIndia’s Lok Sabha elections portal helps voters take informed decisions

New Delhi, April 13, 2009: MapmyIndia has just launched a special online portal at http://elections.mapmyindia.com to help voters in India make an informed choice on issues that matter to them during the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections. Combining the power of MapmyIndia’s detailed and highly accurate India maps with exhaustive data on constituencies, like population, literacy ratio, area amongst others and information on parties, candidates and their track record, the elections website places a wealth of information and analysis for voters to refer to. For example, with the click of a button voters can view constituencies where candidates with cases pending against them are contesting elections on a digital map – red markers showing up against these on the map versus green markers for the others.

With the analysis page, visitors can splice and dice data as they like and bring up statistics like oldest and youngest MPs in the 2004 parliament, number of women candidates elected in the previous polls, public record of candidates, number of constituencies per city, social details about constituencies like working population, area and literate population amongst others. MapmyIndia has joined hands with NoCriminals.org in providing this information on candidates.

MapmyIndia has had earlier links with the election process as well. The highly popular Jaago Re campaign is powered by maps from MapmyIndia for displaying constituencies.

One notable feature of the site is that of constituency boundaries being marked on the digital maps. Due to the constituency delimitation exercise since the last polls, voters now have a quick reference to see which polling booth they can go to cast their vote.

“With the release of this website, we at MapmyIndia wanted Indian voters, especially the first time voters, to learn more about their constituencies and candidates before they vote. We could think of no better way than to combine the power of MapmyIndia maps with database on constituencies and candidates and provide this to voters for analysis. We also host a forum and polls for voters to make their views heard. If initial response is an indicator then people are delighted with the initiative, especially with the feature where they can view candidates with cases pending against them. The site also serves as an effective platform for agencies, parties, party supporters and general citizens to get quick analysis results.” says Rakesh Verma, Managing Director, MapmyIndia.

The other features of the special elections portal of MapmyIndia include:

  1. Search your parliamentary constituency: Key-in your street name and find out where you need to vote
  2. In-depth analysis of political parties and constituencies: Analyze political parties and constituencies in multiple ways; find who’s the oldest and the youngest MP, which constituencies have female MPs etc.
  3. Constituencies and their area: Find how constituency boundaries have changed since 2004. Search for the largest and smallest constituencies by area, population, literacy and other parameters.
  4. Polls and forums: Discuss issues that you feel strongly about and vote for them in online polls with participation from like-minded people.
  5. Track record of politicians: View data on clean and other MPs and the cases against them.
