Google Maps Navigation adds 11 nations

Today, Google expanded its Google Maps Navigation system to cover 11 more countries: Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain and Switzerland for Android devices running Donut (Android 1.6) and higher. The turn-by-turn directions can be read in the language of your choice and the voice destination search works with the accuracy that we’ve come to expect from Google in French, German, Italian and Spanish for Éclair (Android 2.0/2.1) and up. All of the Google Maps features are enabled in the supported countries, street view, POI search, gas stations, etc. Although Google Maps and Navigation is always a free service, it’s important to remember if you’re traveling, although the Map and Navigation service may be free, the data connection used to run it most certainly is not.
