While Google's Maps Navigation Beta page still says that the software only works in the United States, we heard mumblings that the beta was now working overseas in the U.K. on Android 1.6 or newer smartphones as well. Our U.K. editor Russell Jefferies has confirmed that the installation is available for his G1. It does require a separate text-to-speech app download from the marketplace, but he was able to get it running. Google Maps Navigation provides free turn-by-turn directions, and is included in Android 1.6 or newer OS installs.
