We all know that now a days with Smartphone, maps are very useful to get direction to your destination. One of India’s leading telecom provider, Tata docomo launched a new service for Tata docomo users, (Route Finder) which will let you get direction to any destination via SMS.
Since it’s SMS based service, it’s not limited to only 3G phones or smart phones. You can use this new Route finder service on your normal phone.
This service is charged at INR 5 per direction. More over Tata docomo is offering free complementary direction. That means when you request for one direction, the next direction request will be absolutely free.
