Indian GPS set to hit the market early 2018

India's own GPS, NavIC, is set to hit the market early next year. Touted as more accurate than US system, NavIC (‘Navigation with Indian Constellation’), in Hindi means ‘sailor’ or ‘navigator’. The name has been given by India's Prime Minister, Modi.
Sources say that the Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System (IRNSS) with an operational name of NavIC is currently being tested for its accuracy and is most likely to be available in the market for public use early 2018. India needed a constellation of seven satellites in space to complete its Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System+ (IRNSS), a feat the country was able to achieve on April 28, 2016, when Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) successfully launched IRNSS-1G, the seventh satellite in the series, and guided it to its orbit.

So from next year onwards if you ever lose your way in any part of the country; road, locality, mountain, river or sea, you just have to put 'NavIC' to use, to rescue you.
