Google Maps Navigation Navigates To Canada
Oh ya, it’s true. If “YOU ARE CANADIAN!”, then you now have access to Google Maps Navigation. Google Maps Navigation is a free turn-by-turn navigation service which was released with the Motorola Droid last year in October and has since become available to all devices running Android 1.6 and above. That’s right, you knew it was too good to be true. Most devices in Canada are still running Android 1.5 such as the HTC Dream, HTC Magic, LG Eve, and even the lately released Motorola Quench and DEXT. If you happen to be lucky enough and own a Motorola Milestone, Sony Ericsson Xperia X10, Acer Liquid E, HTC Legend, or maybe even a Nexus One you can now access it through Google Maps where it was until recently inaccessible. Be sure you have the latest version of Google Maps from the market (V4.2.0).
To use Google Maps Navigation:
1) Click Menu and select Directions.
2) Enter a start and end point with “Car” as the mode of transportation.
3) When the directions appear click “Navigate” from the options.

Without knowing all the details, it stuns me that record labels in America continue to be very short sighted about the fact that the vast majority of consumers get their music digitally from the internet. Perhaps they are still smarting over the Napster debacle from the 90’s, but if an internet giant like Google came to me and said, “Hey, let’s launch a killer service that all of our users will have access to and will get you guys paid, but it will be in a different way than you are used to.”, I would sit up and listen and most likely act. Not so with the current major recording companies, as Engadget is reporting that someone has leaked that Google Music will be announced today at I/O, but as a cloud storage and streaming service rather than a subscription based offering. And the labels wonder why the continue to hemorrhage money.
