Google Maps Navigation, Android application that offers turn-by-turn directions for free, is now available in UK and Ireland for Android devices 1.6 and higher. “Like other satnav devices, Navigation includes 3D views, turn-by-turn voice guidance, and automatic rerouting. But because Google Maps Navigation is connected to Internet, it also features powerful functionality you can’t get from other satnav services, including most up to date map, business, and traffic data, access to satellite and street views, and of course, search. With GMN, you can search by voice, and in plain English — just press voice search button on your Android phone, say “navigate to Sainsbury’s,” and Navigation will open automatically and guide you to the supermarket. Running out of petrol? You can search along your route for nearby petrol stations, cash points, restaurants, and car parks, without exiting the navigation path,” explains Google. To get the app on your Android phone, search for “Google Maps” on Android Market and download the latest update.
