Google Maps Navigation got announced earlier today, just a bit later after Google stated that Android SDK featured support for Android 2.0. Maps Navigation is a free navigational program that offers voice guidance and search, 3D views, automated route re-calculation and instant, Google Maps-based traffic alerts. Similarly to the standard version of Google Maps, Maps Navigation needs active internet connection in order to function properly.
The first device to run Android 2.0 will probably be the Motorola DROID and its owners will be able to take advantage of Google Maps Navigation on unpacking the handset. The DROID have already been announced by Verizon and is expected to hit the shelves across the US on 6 November.
