India phone data connections and preloaded maps
Ok, I know I shouldnt be in here because Ive got three wheels instead of 2..... but...
I wass hoping for a little guideance please.
Im travelling from Kochin in India upto Sikkim on the northern border with Bhutan in a TukTuk...!
Im hoping to use my unlocked iPhone a local data enabled SIM card for emails and blogging as we go. But with the limitations of not having reliable data connection I am thinking of buying a second hand GPS enabled Nokia phone, such as the N95, with the India maps pre installed.
So my questions are:
- Is the N95 the way to go or are there better options ofr navigation and basic text based emails
- What is the best PAYG Indian SIM card deal which includes data roaming throughout India
- Can you reccomend a good qulaity flexible solar roof panel which prefferably has a USB outlet.
Many thanks in advance
