I'm not sure if I'm doing it correct or not.
I'm planning to do a road trip to Mumbai. Does this app offers voice guided assistance? If yes, how much accurate is it for Indian roads?
Do I've to download or buy any other app or map for it?

How to go ahead about it? Kindly assist. I've read that even Garmin does the same. I installed Garmin XT version on it but it popped up saying that it is not compatible app for my phone. I still installed it but when I run it, it doesn't do anything & comes back to "applications" page.

Need suggestions, help with all the above

Hi Vik,

I am using the Omnia HD in India and use the GPS application extensively. Here's what you need to do to get it operational.

Go to Tools--> Location --> Positioning --> Positioning methods. In this, ensure only the Integrated GPS option is selected.

Take the handset out into an area without much obstacles and the gps should work just fine. The native Route 66 software is fantastic and the roads in India are well mapped out. As I mentioned before, I use this extensively for my navigation needs.
