The launch of the Mini Cooper in India at Rs 24.9 lakh was not the only interesting piece of news to come out of the Delhi Auto Show 2012 last week.

This year automobile accessories and special gadgets got their own spotlight alongside the latest cars, bikes and SUVs. And this one might be of special interest to travelers.

MapmyIndia, pioneer seller of portable navigation devices in the Indian market, launched Zx250, India's first portable 3D navigator which offers an augmented reality-like experience with unprecedented map details. These include house-level maps for 36 cities (20 cities in full 3D); more than 6.3 million places; and street-level maps for 4,000 cities and all towns and villages in India that are connected by highway or road network.

MapmyIndia was initially launched as a navigation tablet CarPad on Android 2.2 and is now the first 3D portable GPS system navigator in the country.

It wirelessly streams music, movies and turn-by-turn voice navigation instructions to the car audio system over a user-chosen FM frequency.

It also connects with a mobile phone over Bluetooth, enabling hands-free calling, and contains built-in city and travel guides.

Currently the Zx150 Deluxe GPS device (also with integrated Bluetooth handsfree profile) costs Rs 17,490. Mumbaikars can also download voice guidance in Marathi.
