Do you like free GPS? Do you think GPS that could lead you around traffic would be even cooler? Then you should definitely be using Google Maps Navigation. They recently added a new feature that can re-route around traffic. Don’t forget that Google Maps Navigation is still considered beta so there will most likely be a few bugs here and there. If you use Google Maps on your phone then please don’t manipulate the device will driving, it’s dangerous, and we here at DHTG want to see you come back.
Follow the break for the Google Mobile Blog release.
You don’t have to do anything to be routed around traffic; just start Navigation like you normally would, either from the Navigation app or from within Google Maps. … Starting today, our routing algorithms will also apply our knowledge of current and historical traffic to select the fastest route from those alternates. That means that Navigation will automatically guide you along the best route given the current traffic conditions.
