Google turn-by-turn navigation now available for Android 1.6 phones
Google has launched an app on the Android Market that allows those with phones powered by Android OS 1.6 or higher to have the same turn by turn navigation seen on the Motorola DROID and other phones that will be released with Android OS 2.0. Actually, the app will not have some of the advanced voice features seen on the Android 2.0 version, but does come with voice guidance, traffic info, satellite and Street View images and Layers. According to the report in RWW, while the app is supposed to work only in the U.S., some have been able to hack their phone to allow the app to work anywhere in the world.
