Google Maps Launches Navigation for Android 1.6

Recently, Google Maps launched Navigation, a robust GPS system for Android. But it only came out for Android 2.0, meaning it could only be used on the brand spankin' new Motorola Droid from Verizon.

Good news for Android 1.6 users. You'll get to use Navigation for your Turkey Day travels this week.

Simply update Google Maps from the Android Market to gain access to turn-by-turn directions, search by voice and to find coffee along that traffic-packed route you find yourself on this extended holiday weekend.
