Do New With Tata Docomo’s SMS Based Route Finder

By June 16th, 2011 AT 1:19 AM

Tata Tele’s GSM arm Tata Docomo which is the innovative powerhouse of Indian telecom space, has come up with another new product.

Tata Docomo Route Finder is a SMS driven location based service which works on any handset as it is completely based on SMS and no data/internet is required.

It fulfils your requirements for accurate directions to locations & also offers a robust database with millions of points of interest, including restaurants, places of worship, shops and hotels.

What makes this service one of its kind is that it isn’t partial! You don’t need a smartphone or a 3G connection to use this service; it is open for all the 2G as well as 3G users. What makes it unique is that you get turn by turn directions right on your phone anywhere anytime via sms’s.

If you do own a smartphone you can also get assistance on a map! Essentially the way it works is to ‘figure out’ the location through triangulation and then deliver the best possible route to the destination – on SMS or on MAP.

Moreover, they have also clubbed in a ‘buy one get one free’ offer, that is, If you request for direction for the first time, your next request will be complementary! Strictly following fair play, they also assure that you won’t be charged until your requested direction is delivered to you. Plus the pricing remains only Rs. 5 per direction.
