Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) Maps now available in Mexico

Google Inc(NASDAQ:GOOG) has extended its Google Maps with navigation support to Mexico, the company announced on Wednesday via the Twitter handle @GoogleMexico.

Google Maps are already available in countries such as France, Germany, Denmark, Hong Kong, and dozens of other locations.

The app is currently in beta, but as many users can attest to, however, it works exceptionally well.

Navigation can be launched by tapping the blue triangle icon, at which point one will be presented with a few different options, including viewing starred locations and adding directions, Slash Gear reported.

Directions can be either typed or spoken, something more convenient for those times you need last minute help while behind the driver’s wheel, it said.

Users can utilise the app in a variety of situations toggling between driving and walking for elderly and infirm people.

Certain requirements can be specified when getting directions, such as only routes that avoid toll roads or highways. Navigation can also be used to view a map with one’s present location, which is tracked with a blue dot as the user moves around, Slash Gear said.
