    provided you have a gps phone, you can *cough*download*cough* Garmin, the second best would be eicher maps. read somewhere on what a life saver it can be when you run outta batteries.

    If you have a Nokia phone, download Nokia Maps from OVI website. Its free for life time & has decent route calculations. Eicher maps are a must if you are solo & haven't ridden through before (into the smaller towns of Karnataka / Kerala). Otherwise, you can ask people for directions - the best way.

    Also, do your homework before leaving:

    1. Take print outs from MapMyIndia / Google Maps of the total route.

    2. Waypoints - Including smaller towns - will help you navigate through even if you are lost.

    3. Pen down if the locals tell you any other shorter / scenic route - it will again help you if you are lost.

    4. Use your GPS phone ONLY if you are really lost & have no other go - The GPRS is normally charged more than usual in roaming.

    5. Use lots of common sense, ride on in accordance to nature, start early - take a lot of breaks and try to call it a day just around sun set & dont just push onto the night in the hills / forest
