MapmyIndia has announced the launch of version 8.0 maps of India that would be included in all MapmyIndia navigation solutions.
The maps now cover 10.33 million points of interest (up from 7.1 million in v7.1), 1.9 million road kilometres, 600,000 villages, 4,787 cities at street-level (up from 4,751) and 50 cities at house-level (up from 39).
MapmyIndia's version 8.0 maps include navigation and driver assistance features with visual cues, such as extended lane guidance (telling the user which lane to get into prior to a turn or exit), junction views (how the upcoming intersection looks in real-life), sign-posts (which major landmarks, localities and cities lie in the direction of upcoming turns), day-time based turn restrictions (based on time and day, whether the particular road is 2-way or one-way in a particular directions) and live traffic (what is the live congestion on roads in the city).
MapmyIndia continues to offer city guides and points of interest (which provide descriptions and photographs of places to visit, stay, eat and shop in popular tourist destinations and cities) voice guidance in 10 regional languages and is also introducing regional maps in 4 local languages (which displays the map in the regional language), to aid users who prefer to communicate and interact with the navigation systems in local Indian languages.
The version 8.0 MapmyIndia maps continue to provide full 3D coverage of India, with digital elevation models and terrain across India, thousands of full-scale 3D landmarks across India, which offer 360-degree views of popular tourist and commercial landmarks, and full 3D city models containing 3D buildings in residential and commercial areas for 46 major cities across India (up from 36 cities in v7.1), including all the major metropolitan areas.
Customers can buy MapmyIndia's GPS navigation systems and update the maps to version 8.0 in their existing navigation systems by visiting MapmyIndia's online store.
