google shows me where to go!
as reported by gizmodo & android australia, and announced on the official australia google blog itself, google maps navigation has arrived in australia as of today. and thanks to the recent gift of a 1GB/month mobile data on my current Telstra plan (who would've thunk it right?), i tried it out tonight on the way to dinner, as well as for the trip home where i went the "wrong" way a few times to see how it copes with rerouting on the fly. i'm happy to say it works pretty well, and seems to do a solid job of delivering turn by turn navigation. while i don't have a great need for a GPS/satnav unit, this new feature of my android phone is a most welcome addition. i'm liking android more and more :)
