This is one thing I would really love to test out. It won't work in India for sure :D

yeap. google is very weak in this area too. i so much wish that the management of Ambience Mall and other big malls would upload their flood data to Google servers so that one can use Google Maps to locate stores inside the mall.

In some malls I have seen these touch screen displays where one can search for and see directions to the store (generic). However, they are very rare, and usually only one per mall, which is appalling. I remember seeing this thing in Kuala Lumpur and that thing - which was placed at several locations inside the mall - even suggests which lift, which stair case, or escalator to take if its on a different floor, and all that from the current location, not a fixed point

right. and in a country like ours, these are likely to start malfunction in a matter of days. i have not seen a working kiosk at PVR in months now :confused: best is to add support on existing platforms. offer data to nokia maps. offer data to google maps. it is free for them. compared to lakhs they would be spending on such machines. of course, it does not help everyone. but it is still better than nothing.
