4. Turn-by-turn directions are available on the Verizon Motorola Droid which features Android 2.0
Verizon worked with Motorola and Google to include a navigation app with their Android phones that is powered by Google Maps.
A source with access to a Droid phone shared their experiences:
There’s an app on the Sholes called Navigation that does exactly that: GPS based turn by turn directions, using the Text to Speech library available in Android 1.6/2.0. It even does the tilted map view similar to most commercial GPS units. I think personally the neatest feature in it is that it ties into the Global Search functionality of the phone, so from the home screen, you can tap the search widget’s “speak” button, say “Directions to San Francisco” and it’ll load, calculate where you are, confirm you want “Directions from here to San Francisco”, and when you say “yes” it goes to it.
This feature was spotted on the Motorola site, before it was quickly taken down.
