Google Maps For Android Update Brings Turn-By-Turn Sidewalk Navigation

You can now use the Google Maps app on your Android phone for a long walk in an unfamiliar neighborhood. The latest app brings the turn-by-turn navigation feature, hitherto available only for vehicular navigation, to users who travel by foot. This Android application had until now offered walking directions to its users though turn-by-turn navigation was not possible.

However, here is some caveat for the short term. The app is still in its beta. This means that the app can make the mistake of including directions that do not contain sidewalks. Besides this, the new update also includes a omnipresent search window along with one-tap solutions to launch Places and Layar screens to explore your neighborhood better.

If you are eager to check this new update out, hop over to the Android marketplace and download this application.
