If you keep up with mobile tech news, you know that a bunch of Android devices are coming out soon. They'll soon be running Android 2.0 and with that will come a new feature: Google Maps Navigation.

Google Maps Navigation brings GPS navigation to Android. It will provide turn-by-turn directions, 3D views and automatic rerouting. It will also have, of course, powerful search features. Those search features include:

Search in plain English - This helps you when you don't know the exact address. You can search the name of a business, for example.

Search by voice - Hands-free is the safest way to search while driving.

Search along route - Find what you need along the route you're driving. Think food, coffee, gas, accommodations, etc.

Google Maps Navigation also provides some robust information including:

  • The most recent map and business data
  • Satellite view
  • Street View
