The new Google Maps Navigation has now arrived in the UK and Ireland, and UK satnav providers will be wondering how much damage this will do to their sales.
The free Google Maps Navigation turns any mobile phone running Android 1.6 and above into a satnav and is available from the Android Market.
If you have your Google account logged in on your phone the app will allow you to select their address and then convert that into directions via the satnav. Directions can be shown in step by step format, with traffic indicators and the remaining journey time displayed bottom left and the current road number in the bottom right.
