If you're rocking an Android 1.6 device like the T-Mobile G1 or myTouch 3G you'll be happy to know that you can now download Google Maps Navigation in Android Market. Yep, after drooling over the screenshots of Google Maps Navigation in Android 2.0, Google has decided to extend this killer app over to Android 1.6 (and above) devices. According to Google:
If you have a phone running Android 1.6, you can download an updated version of Google Maps from Android Market to use Navigation today. Google Maps Navigation is in beta and is currently available in the United States. Some features of Android 2.0 are not available on Android 1.6, for example, the ability to use the "navigate to" voice command as shown in our demo video.
We're getting this onto our T-Mobile G1 as we speak and will report back on how it compares to Google Maps Navigation on the Motorola DROID. Go and get it now!
