Get turn-by-turn voice navigation for Google maps in India on Android
By default, for some unknown reason, Google has disabled turn by turn navigation on Android for most countries including India. However a member of XDA-Developers by the handle Brut.all hacked Google Maps and enabled turn by turn navigation for all the countries. However, brut.all has stopped the development and now chinese developers are continuing to release the mod which was started by brut.all. The thread at XDA-Developers is kept always up to date with the latest modded Maps apk files.
Installation is fairly easy:
- Wipe data and uninstall Maps and street view.
- Copy the apk file downloaded from above link and copy it to the phone.
- To install the apk manually, Unknown sources should be enabled. To enable it go to Settings->Applications->Enable “Unknown Sources”.
- Using any file manager (I prefer astro) install the maps apk file.
- Install street view from the market again.
That’s all. Turn-by-turn navigation should now work for any country on your mobile. You can find alternative installation methods at the same thread on XDA-Developers
