Thanks @roadmatix

Hi Jitin, This is going to be a good trip and I am glad you selected these centers. Here is your recommended itinerary:

1. Mumbai - Aurangabad
2. Aurangabad
3. Aurangabad
4. Shirdi
5. Shirdi - Shani Shingnapur
6. Shirdi - Mumbai

Here are the things I recommended you do on this trip,

Aurangabad and around: Bibi ka Maqbara, Ajanta Caves (Day trip), Ellora Caves (Day Trip),

Shirdi and around: Main shrine, Shani Shingnapur

Return Journey: Just head back home ASAP, without detours. Everyone must also be tired.

Please check this map I have made for you which has all the places of interest which you can visit. The itinerary is day wise.

Guys, I did this trip in June 2012. We were 2 couples and 2 kids in a Wagon R.
We started from Thane at 3 AM and proceeded to Trimbakeshwar. Had Darshan at Trimbakeshwar and proceeded to Sula Vineyard. Learnt a bit about wine making and tasting. Then we had breakfast in Nashik and continued our journey to Shirdi. Had Darshan and proceeded to Shani Shignapur. Left Shignapur to reach Aurangabad by 11.00 PM.
Had planned to book Aurangabad Hotel enroute but mobile data coverage wasn't strong enough. So we started looking for hotels and got an expensive place to stay by midnight.
Aurangabad was usual 3 days itinerary and we had Darshan of a few Ganesh temples, part of Ashtvinayak and Mini Tirupati temple while returning.
Benefits of traveling by own transport enables us to visit lots of places enroute.
And yes, I've been using a Mapmyindia GPS all these years and updated the maps two years back before my Leh trip.

Thats quite a trip @sudeepbagaria. We've been planning a Maharashtra road trip ourselves, and I'll ping you when that happens. Mostly in December; when the weather will be more pleasant and cooler.

Have you tried Garmin in India, or know anyone who has?

I've not met anyone using Garmin or Tom Tom. Most travellers use mobiles and I've seen very few using mapmyindia but didn't get a chance to get their feedback

Have you tried using the offline maps of Sygic? Have used them in my trip to Himachal recently and it worked well for the most of the time. It did re-route once or twice
