Are you one of those that adopted Android early on? You probably rushed out to get your hands on a T-Mobile G1 with dreams of running all the latest and greatest Android apps that were to follow. With the launch of the Verizon Driod Android 2.0 based phone Google included the Google Maps Navigation application. Many users who were on Android 1.6 wondered how they could get their hands on this awesome new navigation app from Google.
Slowly but surely the Android development community figured out a way to back-port the Google Maps Navigation app on their phones with flashing, custom Android builds and 3rd party hacks, it was a time consuming process and definitely not something that uneducated users would want to attempt.
The good news breaking today is that Google has decided to release Google Maps Navigation for Android 1.6. You can find Google Maps Navigation in the Android marketplace right now. This is sure to be one of their most popular downloads across all Android devices.
