Put away those GPS devices! Google Maps Navigation is now available on Android Phones in Canada.

Android Phone users will now have a fully functional Google GPS device in the palm of their hands.

Google Maps Navigation version 4.2 is available in Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, and Switzerland for Android devices 1.6 and higher. Google Maps Navigation is an Internet-connected GPS navigation or ‘satnav’ system that provides turn-by-turn voice guidance as a free feature of Google Maps.

It also features Google Voice Search so you can navigate without ever taking your hands of the wheel.

Can’t wait for this to hit the iPhone :)

Thanks for the tip Ryan!
