This is fresh of the Google press. The free and Google Maps based turn-by-turn navigation is now available in France, Italy, Germany, Spain, Netherlands, Denmark, Austria, Belgium and Switzerland. These countries join the already launched US and UK versions.
Thanks to this launch, Android owners in these countries have now a completely free and fast turn-by-turn navigation application on their handset.
The system is very simple to use. The biggest problem is, that it requires a data connection, to download the map for your navigation. Other than that, the system is very sophisticated and might be a real alternative to TomTom, Navigon and all those other navigation systems for your car.
