I am looking to buy a car navigation system, however I need some input on it. Someone told me I can get Garmin and then download searchable Rawalpindi maps on it. However others told me that Rawalpindi maps are not searchable or are not very efficient. Can you anyone please tell me what would be the best option for me?
Also, do these navigation system come with gps tracking as well in case of car theft etc?
A friend gifted me a PAKNAV device which is essentially a copy of the Garmin device, I used it for some days and gifted to someone else. I used it in Rawalpindi behind Naz cinema area in Old Car parts market. It was showing me as If I am in a big desert with no roads or streets. I realized it does not have any data of east side of Murree Road. May be I could improve it by upgrading the maps, but this device really didn’t appeal me.
I use Google Maps on my Android phone which also provide me with Voice Guided Navigation and I am quite happy with it. Very detailed searchable maps, always updated.
Google maps are now officially downloadable in version 5.7.0, you can download and use them offline.
