All the tech blogs are raving today about Google’s new GPS application for Android based phones called Google Maps Navigation. My good friend Frederic Lardinois over at ReadWriteWeb calls it the first killer app for Android 2.0:
Android 2.0 just got its first killer app: Google Maps Navigation. Google Maps Navigation for Android 2.0 will be available for free and will be part of the default Google Maps app on Android 2.0 phones. The service offers all the features that users expect from a modern GPS app, including traffic data, 3D view and turn-by-turn voice guidance. Because it’s connected to the Google cloud, the app can also display street view images, satellite imagery and real-time traffic data. Google also implemented a voice recognition feature.
And when Google jumps in, you can be there’ll be huge ripples.
