Google Maps Navigation

Beta of Google Maps Navigation is out and is another wonderful technology by Google. It  is an internet-connected GPS navigation system with voice guidance. It is  available for phones with Android 2.0. The best past it is totally free and is going to change the face of the navigation marketing. I wonder what will all mobile companies and others do as they charge monthly fees for navigation services.  This service uses the phone’s internet and directly communicates to cloud of resources giving most accurate and latest data. The other good part is the voice enable search which is pretty impressive and best I have seen ever.
