MapmyIndia’s location-aware mobile apps cover the complete SNT (Social, Navigation and Tracking) spectrum.

“The products that connect the customers at home or office are quite different that those required in a car, due to unique dynamics and space constraints. With MapmyIndia Connected/Convergence suite of products and location-aware mobile apps we have been able to offer seamless in-car connectivity while addressing these constraints,” said Shivalik Prasad, executive director, MapmyIndia.
