    Indian Guides for Nokia Maps v2.0.4503
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    As most of you all might know by now, Nokia and Lonely Planet have entered into a collaboration where Lonely Planet's guides will be offered within Nokia's Maps application.


    The Delhi guide in Nokia Maps has the following index :



    thanks nicesoni_ash



    On selecting a category,such as "Eating", you're taken to a list of places under it. In this case, restaurants. It also tells you how far away from each place, you are. I am still here in Manipal, so it told me I was at least 1900kms away from everything in Delhi :



    The "Night" section takes you to a list of places to hang around in the evening :



    The "Sleeping" section takes you to the Hotels :



    "General" takes you to a list of nearby places that you might find important :



    The "Shop" section takes you to a list of nearby market places :



    The "See" section takes you to the Sightseeing tourist places in the region :






    Now, say you're in the "Eating" section, you can select a restaurant, and when you open it, will be presented with the following options :



    If you select "Show on Map", it will directly take you to where the restaurant is, within the Nokia Maps application :




    If you select "Show Details" :



    It shows you a small brief description of the place :



    You can also select "Drive to" or "walk to" and the application will begin to guide you to the restaurant or place that you've selected.

    The Nokia maps for Delhi are already pretty darn good. Especially when you compare it to the non-existent maps for Udupi or Manipal or lesser known cities. All the Lonely Planet points of interest (POI) are clearly marked with the blue on white Lonely Planet insignia, and appear in addition to the Nokia Maps POIs :



    You can zoom in and pan around :



    Even scroll around the map to see the other places :



    (Note : If you want Nokia Maps not to display places like Hotels, etc , you can disable the category within the Nokia Maps application by going to Options-->Tools-->Settings-->Map-->Categories and check mark and uncheck whichever categories you want. )

    In terms of number of places, the Nokia Maps Lonely planet guide has most of the places that are in the book, although not nearly as organized as the book. I'd say they skipped out on about 3 or 4 in each category though, but all the major places are there.



    For instance, which traveler in India, does not know Cafe Coffee Day (Indian version of Starbucks) :



    It even has a description, like all the items in the guide :



    # Please make sure you have the Indian Maps data installed in your phone before putting these files.., and then just extract the whole contents to your Cities folder.

    besides Delhi, only Mumbai guide is available, though Lonely Planet has almost all cities map of India, but till now only two cities maps are available though I guess when you open the Indian Guide, there are lots of Info like Agra, Mathura and so on... but not like as much specific like this one for Delhi.
