Google GPS - Google Maps Navigation : v5.7.0 with Downloadable Maps
Posté le 12 juillet 2011 à 18:30:00 par gpspassion. EN - General News

Updated July 12th, 2011
Google are continuing to add features to Google Maps Navigation (GMN), arguably the "killer app" of Android, their mobile operating system. After v5.0 in December that introduced local caching (navigation without a network), here comes v5.7.0 that adds the local storage of map sections.

In what looks like the first step towards onboard navigation, the new version lets you download any number of 10x10 mile mapsets to your mobile device for use when out of network coverage or to save on roaming fees abroad. Give it a try and catch up with the early feedback in the [TOPIC] Google Maps Navigation - Reviews - v5.7.0 topic of the gps4android.com forums...

Updated March 7th, 2011 - Google are continuing to add features to Google Maps Navigation (GMN), arguably the..."killer app" of Android, their mobile operating system. After v5.0 in December that introduced local caching (navigation without a network), we got v5.1 in February and v5.2.1 today.

While some sites are saying that Google have introduced dynamic traffic based routing, it seems the (excellent) alternate routes feature that shows three routes with ETA is unchanged. What's new is the feature to rate and write reviews on places and the ability to ping Latitude contacts to ask them to check in. You can use the [TOPIC] Google Maps Navigation - Reviews - v5.2.1 topic of the new gps4android.com forums to discuss.

Updated February 6th, 2011 - Google changed the way maps are looked at with Google Earth and Google Maps a few years, notably by making available for free high definition satellite maps. Hard not to spend hours recreating trips or seeing Google Earth animations in news reports. Now you can even ask to be notified by email of map updates thanks to the Follow Your World service. Just pick any number of areas and you'll get an email when...... they change. Give it a try and you can use the [TOPIC] Travelling with Google Earth and Maps of the "GPS and Mobile News" forums.

Updated December 14th, 2010 - Google recently took advantage of the launch of the Nexus S with Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) to show the next version of Google Maps Navigation (GMN), arguably the "killer app" of Android. The new v5 that should be available this week adds some new features of interest : vector maps to increase the display speed and allows local caching to navigate when the network is lost and 3D rendering of buildings...

... You can use the [TOPIC] Google Maps Navigation - Reviews - v5 topic of the new gps4android.com forums to discuss.

Updated September 18th, 2010 - Google recently released a new update for their acclaimed Google Maps Navigation (GMN) software for the Android platform. The current version is a far cry from its Google Maps foundation...that still graces the iPhone for instance, likely because Apple have nixed any free turn-by-turn navigation (Google had stated they would be making GMN available for the iPhone)...

...The new v4.5 adds a handy pedestrian mode and a new way to navigate around Street View, now you drag the "pegman" directly to where you want to go. You can use the [TOPIC] Google Maps Navigation - Reviews - v4.5 of the "GPS on Smartphones" forums to discuss.

Updated June 11th, 2010 - After launching Google Maps Navigation (GMN) in the US at the end of last year and in the UK in April, Google are now making it available in 11 More European Countries, including Germany, Italy and France. GMN is free to use but it is an "off-board"...... application that relies on a distant server for access to maps so roaming charges apply. Compared to the previous version, there appears to be a new automatic day/night mode and a new upcoming turn preview. You can use the [TOPIC] Google Maps Navigation - Reviews - v4.2 of the "GPS on Smartphones" forums to discuss.

Updated October 28th, 2009 - Oops, Google have done it again...the announcement of Google Maps Navigation while not entirely unexpected, sent the stocks of the GPS players tumbling down 20% today. Is this an overraction? While the market is always right and Google have clearly spoilt us with great apps over the years, we should keep in mind that this is an "off-board" application with all the data stored on a remote...... server, not locally like on an AIO, so 3G (or even 3G+/HSDPA) will be required for the data rich content. Also only the Android platform is getting it for now and it's limited to the USA. You can use the Google Launches Threat to GPS & Maps Powers of the "GPS and Mobile News" forums to discuss.

Updated February 25th, 2009 - Google regularly enhance their free geo-related applications and Google Maps Mobile has recently received the new Latitude feature that allows users to share their live position with friends. The position can be determined by various means, GSM, WiFi or GPS of course. It will even work in the background when you exit GMM, so make sure you turn it off for privacy......and if you don't want it to drain the battery of your Phone/PDAPhone/Smartphone! You can use the Google Maps Mobile v3 - Latitude with live sharing topic of the "GPS and Mobile News" forums to discuss.

Updated February 10th, 2007 - Likely related to the upcoming 3GSM Show (it starts on Monday in Barcelona and will be covered on GpsPasSion), but after "Google Maps Mobile" last week, here come Microsoft's Windows Live Search and Nokia's smart2go mobile. All these applications offer free over the air (smart2go has a PC companion app too) map viewing, gps positionning, place search, and route calculation, but only...

... smart2go has a for-pay active GPS guidance option. You can discuss these new applications/services in their respective threads.

Posted February 3rd, 2007 - Ever since we got a taste of "Google Maps" on mobile platforms with Mobile GMaps in the summer of 2005 and then with various other applications such as Map4PDA or J2MEMap, we were looking forward to a native Windows Mobile version with GPS support. This is now a reality with Google's own application for WM5.0 that you can download directly from your PC with this link......Keep in mind that this is an "off-board" application, so your PDA will need to access the Google servers for maps, addresses, traffic and route calculation and use your bandwidth, not a problem with WiFi, but with GPRS/Edge/3G, your monthly allotment may get used up fast...

You can catch up with this thread of the forums for some first comments and screenshots.
