The Android OS speaks for itself that there is no end for its rising power as an OS. Last month, a high rise in the number of applications in the Android market was seen ( around 9000), which brings the total around 44000 applications in the Android market. Now, Google brings Free turn-by-turn navigations on Android devices in UK.


The Android users in UK just have to update the version of the Google Maps to 4.1.1 and free navigation is now in their device. HTC Desire and Nexus One, the handsets running on Android 2.1 got the navigation after the update, while Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 which runs Android 1.6 also successfully ran the navigation supported Google Maps.

Until now, the free turn-by-turn free navigation was available for the US Android users only.
