Great news! Google have updated their maps for Mauritius!
If you've ever tried to browse Google Maps (& Google Earth) or Live Maps for Mauritius, then you must have noticed that most of the roads were wrong!!! Not only the labels, but the map itself is completely off-way. Like above on Live Maps!
Well, Google or the mapping company commissioned by Google have finally sorted things out, with so much precision that I'm certain they enlisted Mauritians to do it. :)
So what we now have is the most complete Map of Mauritius!
But the best thing is that this map is accessible from your phones. Say you want directions in Port Louis... grab your S60 (or iPhone), open the Google Maps app & off you go! With A-GPS, you can have your exact location & even turn-by-turn navigation.
Next time you're lost at UOM, you now know what you need to do...
Can you identify my house? ;)
Update – February 2010
Also note that Google have launched their Mauritius cache servers. Hence accessing YouTube content & Google Maps will be faster on My.T connections! :)
