Google navigation works in big Europe countries

Android 1.6 of better, tested

The day has finally come, Google navigation works as of late last week. Navigation on android based phones already worked in the US and UK, but this time it also Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain and Switzerland.

If you type the address outside of these countries nothing happens. We just read that Canada also got its own version, joining this joyful crowd of countries. Since we tried it we can confirm that it works just fine in the Austrian capital and it knows how to drive you to villages and small towns in other Austrian provinces, such as Lower Austria.

If your high school geography knowledge still serves you well, you can see that Google took care of the biggest countries in Europe whereas the smaller ones will have to wait.

The navigation application for Google maps will update to 4.2 and you are good to go. Exclusive to navigation in Europe are the satellite maps that can give you more realistic picture. The downside is that this kind of navigation requires an active internet connection, which might cost you some serious money in roaming.

Since its free, we are not complaining and it will certainly be another argument for getting something that is not windows or iPhone based.

More details here.
