Google on Wednesday announced the beta release of a GPS navigation application for Android 2.0 devices. The application is part of Google Maps for mobile. Android version 2.0 will appear on the upcoming Droid handset from Motorola and Verizon, and other manufacturers also plan to release handsets carrying the updated, Google-backed mobile OS. Although Google makes other mobile applications that work on a variety of mobile platforms, it's unclear when or if its new nav app will make its way to Android rivals like the iPhone or Research In Motion's BlackBerry devices.
So Google have finally released a full blown Sat Nav system for upcoming Android 2 based phones. Why Android 2 and what about the hundreds of thousands of existing Android phone users?
I have an HTC Magic running the latest Android 1.6 software, but will the Google Sat Nav work on my phone?
I have emailed support at HTC and typically still no reply.
M'mmmmm, thinks I may be paying for Co-Pilot, but it's very annoying when my phone is only a few months old!
