MapmyIndia makes its maps available to Garmin devices
Indian map data provider MapmyIndia has announced that users of Garmin GPS devices can now install MapmyIndia’s maps on their devices. With this new development Garmin device users will have access to Indian maps of 202 cities, 130,000 towns and villages, 450,000 point of interests, and navigate to 640,000 unique reachable destinations across India. The maps are available at INR 7,000 ($140).

These MapmyIndia maps are compatible with a range of Garmin devices including Nüvi 2xx, 2xxW, 6xx, 7xx and 13xx series. They are available on an SD card and incorporate technology provided by Garmin, to fully integrate with the Garmin device and give users the best GPS navigation experience.

“With the growth in demand for MapmyIndia Navigators we also received queries from users of other GPS devices. They were interested in knowing if, and when, they would be able to use MapmyIndia maps on their devices. There were similar queries from foreign travellers – both business travellers and tourists – who could not use fully utilize their Garmin devices in India because of lack of good quality digital maps. Therefore, it was natural for MapmyIndia to make available the India maps for other devices, starting with Garmin devices,” says Rakesh Verma, Managing Director, MapmyIndia.
