Google Maps Navigation version 4.2 is now available in Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, and Switzerland for Android devices 1.6 and higher. Google Maps Navigation is an Internet-connected GPS navigation or “satnav” system that provides turn-by-turn voice guidance as a free feature of Google Maps. Try Google Maps Navigation in your local country and language today — and have a great time touring around the Continent this summer if you get the chance!
Free turn-by-turn navigation could be an important reason why people choose a mobile phone, so Google and Nokia try to make the most of Google Maps Navigation for Android and Ovi Maps for Symbian. Most likely, in near future, all smartphones will include a free application for navigation.
