Google has finally made available its turn-by-turn Google Maps Navigation (with voice directions) from today. Up until now it has only been available in the United States, so today’s release will hopefully see Google Maps Navigation release across other European regions shortly too.
Whilst initially only for Android 2.0+ devices, Google has also made Navigation available to those with Android 1.6 smartphones too. Not that it helps us HTC Hero owners stuck on Android 1.5. We’ll need to wait for the Android 2.1 update, but at least it’s another significant reason to wait.
