Those folks from Mountain View have been working hard to bring their popular services to as many regions as possible. Yesterday it appears that the awesome Google Maps Navigation feature has been given the green light and is now available in Mexico. It’s in a beta stage, but users in Mexico should be able to use and enjoy Maps Navigation with all the features we currently enjoy elsewhere.
According to Android Police Mexico got added to the official supported list and help page for Google Navigation earlier this week, so they were quick to assume it was coming soon. However yesterday @GoogleMexico confirmed the news right to Twitter.
Google recently added Singapore and other locations to their offering, and today our friends (and drug cartels) to the south just got the same treatment. Google’s been updating Navigation frequently and in March added a new menu and improved the user interface significantly.
For now Google Maps Navigation is still considered beta and tells you so each time you fire it up, but it works pretty flawless for us here at Android Community and has for a long while (insert Apple Maps joke here). If you’re in Mexico give Google Maps Navigation a try today. For those in other regions check out this list to see if your area is supported.
