Maruti Suzuki India Limited (MSIL), the country's favourite passenger car manufacturer, has tied up with MapmyIndia for supplying GPS navigation systems to the domestic car buyers. MapmyIndia is one of the leading providers of GPS systems and its domain comprises digital maps, GPS receivers, location apps and GIS solutions. As per reports, all of the 550 Maruti Suzuki retail outlets across the nation will now offer MapmyIndia GPS devices as OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) accessories.

The availability of MapmyIndia GPS products as a Maruti Genuine Accessory at Maruti Suzuki showrooms across India helps us move forward in our mission to power every car in India. It’s our commitment to give the best driving experience to Maruti Suzuki customers.”
