Motorola Milestone comes with lifetime free access to voice-guided street-level maps of 401 cities in India
The Moto Droid was launched in USA last year with Google Turn-by-Turn navigation , it’s not available in India as of now. But Motorola has joined hands with local maps company MapMyIndia to offer lifetime free access to fully voice-guided street-level navigable maps of 401 cities in India

This offers voice-guided navigation and routing in the cities and across major national and state highways. With this the Indian consumer can drive to 400,000 towns and villages and explore over one million points of interest like budget/premium hotels, petrol pumps, eating joints, ATMs, hospitals as well as tourist and religious spots. All the consumer needs to do is to launch ‘India’ maps from the MOTONAV application to enjoy an unparalleled navigation experience. The GPS navigation service is free with no activation or data charges, independent of mobile networks and can be used even without inserting the SIM card, as the maps are fully loaded on the MILESTONE
It sounds really cool and would have been cool if Moto bundled the phone with a Car holder. I had a chance to talk with a MapMyIndia executive recently and they claim to have the best maps of India just next to the government . I’m really eager to try this for navigation inside a small town and also a major city !
