Google Maps Navigation Launching Australian Beta This Week

It’s about time! Google’s Map Navigation software for Android devices made waves last October when it launched in the States, and now it’s coming to Australia. We’ve just received an invite to the Beta launch event in Sydney on Wednesday morning.

In case you’ve forgotton, Google Maps Navigation essentially turns your Android phone into a satnav for free. You get turn by turn voice navigation, traffic and never out-dated maps without having to spend a cent. It’s the kind of development that could put companies out of business, and it’s big news that it’s coming to Australia. We’ll be at the launch and will let you know all the announcements as they happen.
