Google Maps Navigation Goes Live In Kenya

Mobile phone users with Smartphones powered by Android 2.2 or newer and iOS 5.1 in Kenya can now take advantage of Google Maps Navigation, making driving to unfamiliar destinations easier.

Google rolled out their Navigation services to Kenya along with Ghana, Cote d’Ivoire and Senegal in Africa, and Estonia, Bulgaria, Latvia, Lithuania and Slovakia in Europe.

Google Maps Navigation is a mobile application that comes as a feature of the Google Maps. It was built from the ground up as an Internet-connected GPS system, allowing users to search for their locations through voice recognition.


The turn-by-turn voice-guided navigation allows users to follow the route without having to look at the phone screens.

In addition to offering address search, Google Navigation allows users to search for locations by their business names. It also allows users to identify landmarks along the route such as petrol stations, restaurants and parking areas.

Google’s navigation tool is regularly updated with the most recent data from Google Maps, which means users will not be required to purchase map upgrades or manually update their devices.

Interested users can get Google Maps Navigation, search for and download the newest release of ‘Google Maps’ in Google Play or the Apple App Store.
