Re: Official Google Blog: Go thataway: Google Maps India learns to navigate like a local
We would like to let the world know that we (RouteGuru) pioneered this innovation back in 2007 (http://www.pluggd.in/product-reviews/routeguru-techtribe-product-reviewhtml-435/).
Please visit http://RouteGuru.com for a technology demonstration (live for Delhi area).
We use Google Maps API to (and only to) display our route on a graphical map.
We also claim that our landmark-based directions technology is better than Google’s. Compare for yourself for any pair of locations in Delhi-NCR.
But thanks to Google, global markets are opening up to this age-old concept now. Indeed, we have started receiving interest in our technology from markets that were foreign to us till now.
