    Confirm or Deny Navigation Not Working Outside The US?

    Can anyone confirm or deny if you can/can't use Google Navigate outside of the US?

    I'm in Germany and speak "navigate to Paris, France, and it comes back and says there is not a route for the address I provided.

    So I want to confirm it isn't just my phone...

    currently it only works in the US. So frustrating, I don't get why not.

    what they should work on is telling people purchasing outside the US that its currently not working because I was quite annoyed when I found out. was 1 of the reasons I was looking forward to this baby.

    I knew that it wasn't working in UK before I bought it - and that they were "working on it". There is a hack that makes navigation work outside US but you do lose some functionality.

    I was under the impression Google had closed the loophole in the modded Maps app, if not then I'd like a link as well

    in germany on a non-rooted nexus, this works for me:
    [Think Tank #2 - SOLVED] Modifying Maps to enable Navigation outside USA - Page 108 - xda-developers
    post 1074 contains the link to the maps-file. just install it with something like ASTRO. and install Nav Launcher from the Market.

    It does say:

    The reduced functionality is as follows:
    *No street name at the top
    *No arrow indicating next turn direction
    *Voice guidance is delayed, if at all present

    This does make the Google GPS somewhat less useful I suppose. Back to other GPS apps...
