Last week, Google rolled out turn-by-turn navigation for the first time in the UK, rivaling the paid-for alternatives that are currently available on the Market, and dedicated satellite navigation systems made by companies such as TomTom and Garmin.
The update was rolled out to users of Android 1.6 and above (sorry HTC Hero owners) without any updates being pushed to phones, so many users that I speak to are still unaware that they actually have the feature available to them. Having the choice of satellite navigation available to me on my Google Nexus One handset is a great addition to the Android mobile phone platform.
