Google Navigation now available in the UK

by David Brooks | 21.04.2010
Earlier Engadget reported that Google Navigation was available in the UK.  We can now confirm that this is indeed true and we have tried it out for ourselves. So far, it has only been confirmed that this works with Android 1.6 devices and above. Google Navigation is the free GPS Navigation app available for Android phones only, which you access through Google Maps. The app works in a similar way to your typical TomTom, but it takes advantages of the exhaustive information available in Google Maps, such as the Places Directory (Cinemas, Pubs etc) and Google StreetView. Google Navigation has been available in the US since early 2010. See below for a video of Google Navigation in action or visit the Official Google Navigation website for more information.
