SatNav (raised $7mn from Sequoia) has launched its GPS navigation product – SatGuide – for major retail chains across India. SatGuide has partnered with chains like Croma, Staples, E-Zone and Reliance Autozone to bring its range of GPS products into the neighbourhoods of consumers across India.

SatGuide is available in 500 stores and company plans to reach out to more consumers by partnering with more retail stores in the future, taking the number to 3,000 by the end of 2008. [source]
