      Thanks Sunil G for the approval. Yes, V6200 helped us a lot in getting out of the crowded and confusing Margao city without asking for directions. Also the torch was handy enough to check the bike's rim condition etc at night. Indeed a cell phone for sports enthusiasts.

          Gray-haired riders don't get that way from pure luck.

                    Cheers

                        Shrinath ji, this ride was posted on FB at least 5 days before the ride complete with route etc. Seems you didn't pay attention to it

                        This phone's GPS takes at least 4-5 mins for the satellites to align and start the GPS reception. Earlier even I thought that my phone's GPS isn't working when the device didn't catch signal for first 2-3 mins. But later realized it takes 4-5 mins. Once activated it's very easy to use.

                        The MMI device is so damn accurate that it even showed small country roads along the NH17. Totally blown away by it's accuracy. Another good thing is it's battery. I used GPS continually from Karwar till my home on a small island near Old Goa and the battery consumption was very little. Even if you sway away from it's predicted route, it recalculates the new route within seconds. What surprised me is it could locate even the small remote island where my ancestral home is in Goa. We were riding late night in fog and bone chilling cold and this phone saved a lot of efforts of asking people for directions.

                        Almost all the sports features work brilliantly and accurately except the thermometer which sometimes fails to show exact temp. But the main USP is the life time activated MMI GPS. Definitely worth spending Rs. 8250/-
