Google Navigation Available on the G1
Well, it’s almost the update we’ve been waiting for…Google Navigation on the G1. We’ve been hoping for Android 2.0, but hey, Navigation has been the major Wow Factor, and we’ve wanted it.
Visit the Marketplace and download the update to Google Maps. When requesting directions through Google Maps on your Android phone, simply click Navigation and Whammo! GPS navigation just like the big boys but for free.
You can also navigate through your phone, check emails, etc. and even have the display turned off and the phone will still speak the directions to you. Your phone may ask you to install the text to speech engine, but the steps are easy, just press “Install.”
