Google Introduces Satellite Navigation To Android mobiles

UK mobile phone users can now avail themselves of Google's satellite navigation apps on their Android based handsets. Google has added a new tool to its handsets running on Android OS to provide step-by-step directions, following which users can easily reach their desired destinations anywhere in the UK and Ireland.

Users with the 1.6 version of the Android OS handset can download the apps for free from Android stores. The new feature includes a voice-search technology that can follow voice instructions. It understands the name of places and businesses simply by talking into the phone and directs users to their place of interest.

According to Steve Lee, Google's Group Product Manager for Mobile Maps, “as the technology relies on satellite links to collect information; it requires a web connection, although it can deal with a temporary signal failure on the road. He further added, ”Maps are presented in 3-D, though you can switch to a satellite view (similar to Google Earth) or Street View. It offers the detail that you've come to expect of Google Maps experience."
