Google Launches Voice-Guided, Turn-By-Turn Navigation For Maps In Four African Countries
Google has added advanced features such as voice-guided, turn-by-turn navigation to its Maps in four African countries, including Kenya, Ghana, Senegal and Ivory Coast. The new features works like a GPS navigation system which provides turn-by-turn voice guidance and automatic re-routing and also gives access to information about any of the thousands of cities, towns, roads, and points of interest that have been mapped by users in Google Map Maker. Google Maps Navigation (Beta) is accessible to any smartphone user running Android 2.2+, is available on the Google Play and requires no downloads or updates whatsoever. If you use an iOS 5.1+ device, it is also available in the App Store in those African countries, except Ivory Coast.
