Apparently us Yanks have been spoiled by the warm embrace of Google Maps Navigation
, forgetting that our friends in the UK don't have the same luxury. Leave it to Electricpig
to connect worlds, finding a somewhat hack-induced way to bring the app upgrade to British Android 1.6 devices
. Instructions are pretty easy, so if you're game, don your DIY hat and click over.
As indicated, the gang at xda-developers
forum have been doing this for some time now
. Consider the tutorial provided here as very straightforward and easy to follow -- anyone with an Android 1.6 device would be remiss not to give Navigation a shot now.
