[How to] Google Navigation on Android G1

With Motorola Droid came the world’s most advanced Navigation GPS – Google Maps Navigation. And now it’s hacked to be installed on other Android Devices : G1

Google Maps Navigation will be part of Android 2.0, and Android 2.0 is expected to come to most—if not all—Android handsets on the market eventually. But this hack (requires a rooted phone) makes it possible now.

Google Maps Navigation Beats All GPS

Android 2.0 Feature Review

Step 2. When phone is rebooted, run Part 2.bat and again as before, When prompted to press any key, the installation process is done.
Step 3. Enable GPS, if not already and then Open Maps and press OK.

    • Bat files run on PC only, so you have to run it on your windows. After running it, you will be prompted “press any key” do so. Hope that helps. Sorry for late reply though, I nearly missed it.
