    If you are driving with family, Book you accommodations well in advance. In December accommodation availability is very difficult. All the best and drive safe.

    Amazon Eco Auto in India

    Would love to be part of it. I will PM you the details. May be we can work on it together. You can find many car DIY guys installed Eco dot in their cars. It is fine, but may not be an ideal device.
  4. I came across a device called Amazon Eco Auto.source Features : Connects to Alexa using your phone, is ready in seconds, and plays through your car speakers. Includes Echo Auto Dash Mount. With eight microphones and far-field technology, Echo Auto can hear you over music, A/C, and road noise. Use your voice to play music, check the news, open the garage door, find the nearest gas station, and more. Play Audible books, stream podcasts, or listen to Amazon Music, Apple Music (coming soon), Spotify, Pandora, SiriusXM, or NPR. Make calls, set reminders, add items to your shopping and to-do lists, or manage your calendar. With over 50,000 skills and counting, Alexa is always getting smarter. Skills are like apps and let you do more with Alexa. Set location-based routines—automated actions Alexa can start when you leave the office or get home. Ask for directions and Alexa connects to supported apps like Google Maps, Apple Maps, or Waze on your phone. Simple setup details Specs It is an interesting device, You can register for early bird offer. I thought of installing my Eco Dot in the car, But after looking at this device, I will wait and decide. This is the best part, You can write your own skill set. This is very good opportunity for IT developers who love cars.

    Hyderabad to Kodaikanal roads

    It is the same situation at most of the commercial destinations. But I think we can always search around for off beat locations. Let the Luther update us no. of days. May be we will have more clarity on what we can suggest. Same situation brother. Holiday fever already kicked-in.

    How to handle a tyre blast?

    But a slow puncture can lead to tyre burst. No matter how many precautions we take, chances of tyre burst are still present. I feel TPMS is the only device which helps in alerting the driver.

    I would suggest you to add Munnar to your list. I liked Munnar very much over Kodaikanal and Ooty. For Solo driving Munnar has lot of things to offer.

    Share your best mobile picture

    For me it is a pain. I used to do following things before a trip. 1. Charge your camera (every day) 2. Empty your memory cards 3. Carry a bad, with two lens 4. Change lens depending on angle 5. After the trip, copy pictures to a laptop, edit the raw images using lightroom. 6. Share it on travel platforms With mobile 1. Point and Shoot 2. Edit it in mobile 3. Share it on travel platforms 90% of pictures are viewed on small screen, you cannot find any noise that is generated by mobile cameras.

    No offence taken my friend. I can say that i will agree with your points to a certain extent. Every device has their own advantages/disadvantages. I followed photography when i was young. Recently, I have seen a major shift in mobile photography. Most of the flagships mobiles are matching DSLRS in good light conditions. Low light is where DSLR shine, but Apple/Google algorithms made a huge impact in this area. Let me compare low light photography. Imagine shooting a wide area in low light, what you need from a DSLR? 1. Tripod stand 2. Wide angle lens 3. find a proper place to mount your stand 4. Remote With modern flagships, you can take pictures hand held. They are compact and you have them with you 24x7. Quality may not be as good as DSLR but they are catching up. In 2010, I agree that DSLR is way ahead of mobile. In 2020, mobiles will eat into DSLR.

    Check out the google nighsight. It is doing miracles. DSLRS are dead in my opinion, unless you are serious into photography. I think these brands are happy with mobiles, they mostly won't venture into cameras, which is already a dead market.

    Hyderabad to Spiti Valley, Himachal Pradesh.

    Looks too complicated. Plan purely relies on weather conditions. I want to visit Spiti in December. But after discussing with Karthik and Ranger decided to drop out. May be I have to wait till i buy a proper 4x4.

    Hyderabad to Sikkim road trip planning

    Joining Karthik and Ranger this time. Hope there won't be any last minute drop outs. I know it is a very long drive but If every things goes as planned. This will be my first cross country drive. đŸ˜‰
  13. Looks like it is almost 3 years from your first meetup. I remember the good old days. 10~15 members in WhatsApp group. Now we maxed out. Keep hosting more. đŸ˜€ Hope you guys will plan some local meetup to the WhatsApp group members.
  14. I had a lengthy discussion with a denting/painting guy. Colour mismatch is very rare now. People are using colour codes now, previously they used to perform some mixing. A potential (mid level shop) dent/painter can fix most of the cars. Most of the manufactures give our cars to third party denting shops.
