    Dash Cams in India

    My review on DDPAI Mini 2P dash cam after using it for more than 8months Brand: DDPAI Model: Mini 2P (2K recording) Price: 7.5K including hardwiring kit Place: Amazon Link: https://www.amazon.in/DDPAI-Mini2P-Distortionless-Dynamic-G-Sensor/dp/B07KYWH7MN/ref=sr_1_2?keywords=DDPAI&qid=1573281833&sr=8-2&th=1 The quality is good, but the concern raised by many regarding number plate quality hasn’t been solved. One will find it difficult while looking at the video at speeds more than 50kph but can be readable when paused and zoomed or by zooming a snap. This cam doesn’t have a screen, can be controlled by a mobile app. DDPAI mini 2P comes with a bluetooth shutter button through which we can take snaps on the go. Smaller model DDPAI mini doesn’t come with a shutter button and records in 1080p quality. Sample Videos & Images Night Quality During Heavy Rains Few Pictures

    Hyderabad to Tirupati

    There are some mixed opinions from hyd to tirupati route, Option-1 - LB nagar - nalgonda - addanki - NH-16 - nellore - srikalahasti - tirupati Option-2 - Gachibowli - kurnool - kadapa - tirupati It all depends upon the start point from hyderabad and also if you want to visit srikalahasti temple. Again no clear clarity on completion of proposed highway kurnool - kadapa, but what I got the information is that almost completed. The only issue you may face is between kadapa to tirupati, this stretch is not a highway and you may not feel comfortable. Even I am planning to travel tirupati 29th Nov. Gachibowli - Nalgonda - addanki - NH-16 - nellore - srikalahasti - tirupati Day1 - 29th Nov - Srikalahasti temple darshan Day2 - 30th Nov - Padmavathi amma varu and local temple Day3 - 1st Dec - reach Tirumula, special darshan (300/-) Day4 - 2nd Dec - Suprabhatam seva and vasanthotsavam seva Day5 - 3rd Dec - Return journey Tirupati - vontimitta (temple darshan) - kadapa - yaganti - kurnool - gachibowli All seva tickets and accommodation (tirumala) tickets are booked except tirupati, I need to try in vishnu nivasam current accommodation if not search good hotel nearby. Any suggestion, please..... Thank you, Raj

    Hyderabad to Nagpur Road Trip

    Guys, I am back to Bangalore on Nov 2nd. Started from Bhopal on Nov 1st early morning 5:00 AM. Reached Nagpur around 11:30 - 12:00 and continued. As mentioned earlier, I wanted to cross Hinganghat - Adilabad stretch during day time so didnt halt much in between. This time to my surprise, after Hinganghat and near Kelapur toll, was greeted by craters. If anyone is crossing this section first time that too in dark its very dangerous. There was hardly any place to move car from there. Somehow crossed that section and within 2kms there is a toll named Kelapur toll. I complained there about the road condition and they told work in progress. I even raised public grievance on "https://pgportal.gov.in/." and awaiting reply. We reached Hyderabad at 7:00 PM and stayed in a hotel for night and started next day morning (Nov 2nd) for Bangalore. After having breaks for breakfast and fuel reached home (in whitefield) by 4:30 PM). With this, I completed the trip successfully :). Thanks , Dhananjay

    Hyderabad to GOA current best route ?

    I did this in the 2nd Week of October (09 - 13 Oct 2019). The route I took was Hyderabad (Miyapur) -> Zaheerabad -> Humnabad -> Gulbarga -> Bagalkot -> Belgaum -> Chorla -> Goa (Candolim). Road was excellent end-to-end, except from a small patch close to Bagalkot (which might have been very well repaired by now). Particularly the entire Karnataka section of the road was buttery smooth. We had taken a break at Belgaum, and continued on our journey next morning. Once we enter the Goa side of Chorla road, expect some broken patches - but at max for 15-20km, intermittently. Btw if you break at Belgaum, do try the Donne Biryani at either Donne Biryani Adda (DBA) or Niyaaz. DBA is my personal favorite among the two 🙂

    Hyderabad to GOA current best route ?

    Hello Guys, I want to know updated road condition as i am planning this weekend. Thanks in advance.
  16. Thanks for sharing the detailed article... Very useful.
  17. Very recently I drive between Exit 12 and 6 for almost 60 kms, around 9pm. I felt just slept for few milli seconds since it was almost deserted!!!
  18. For me this is always is perfect plan. Start early, take off by sunset. I'm not at all comfortable driving in artificial lights.
  19. Even my personal experience with water is same. Take more water, you have to take a pee break every hour. Very helpful.
  20. Good tips. Even though we consider yourself to be experts. It better read such information and keep them in our mind during long drives.
  21. Early mornings always advisable @Sridhar Tandra

    Avoiding Fatigue During Long Drives

    I always start at around 3.30-4 am for any long drive to that matter. 1) I can easily pass through city traffic 2) Drive at this time after a nice nap will be fresh and will not feel tired at least until snack time, by then I will usually cover off the distance and reach my destination usually for the day (Anything around ~600-700 km's). No tiredness means no fatigue! Also, the main benefit by starting at this time (since I do VJA / Anantapur most of the times) avoid heavy vehicles to the most. Buses reach their destinations already or the city outskirts which means no heavy traffic / head lights oncoming and very less truck traffic at this time. Fantastic Topic to discuss! Thanks @SK01
  23. Yes. It's always good and morning drives are pleasent. Also we should not give a chance for trucks or busses to overtake us. If it's unavoidable then need to avoid them and let them go. Need to maintain good distance from busses and trucks at any time. On the last day of my trip as keen to reach back home I'm driving for 600+km or 12+hrs and i should avoid.
  24. Thank you @karthik I always prefer early morning drives, and if night drives will start before 6.00pm before busses start their journey. Always try to be 2hrs ahead of heavy vehicles (mainly bus). This way we can have a peaceful drive. I always follow this while driving to Vijayawada.
  25. Very good tip. Will definitely be useful.
  26. Very well said @sahil I always prefer halting mid way for Bengaluru drive unless started early in the morning. Main reason being traffic. We get easily exhausted after entering city, driving continuesly on highways. Reasons are many...
  27. Thank you @Ranger Absolutely right. I always try to avoid ORR during nights for the same reason.
