On an average, an Indian commuter stops four times to ask for directions before reaching their final destination especially during the first visit. That’s because being assisted by someone who knows the right direction gives you a sense of relief and security. Since life involves exploring new destinations on a daily basis you will have to stop-and-ask, time and again till you reach there. Imagine having a friend who responds instantly to all your direction problems and gets you on the right path, boon isn’t it? Tata DOCOMO’s new value added service ‘Route Finder’ is one such friend who will always be there to guide you and keep you on the right track, anytime anywhere.
Tata DOCOMO has come up with a unique & one of its kind service called ‘Route Finder’.
