Google is certainly in the all conquering mood! It took on the online music business yesterday with its One Box service and now Google is ready with its free Sat Nav application for the Android 2.0 users. The service is available for free in the US only but Google has plans to expand it globally once there is ample data collected regarding the same. Motorola Droid will be the first Android 2.0 phone and the HTC Hero will soon follow with an Android update-all this means that the free app will be available on the Verizon Droid and the Sprint HTC Hero.
This application will offer 3D views, turn-by-turn voice guidance and automatic rerouting. This development is a consequence of the fact that Google is no longer using the TeleAtlas data, which helps Google make the service free. Other big players from this field namely TeleNav and TomTom are pretentious is mentioning that the App does not affect their business. A clear proof of their deterioration is the fact that their shares have already started plummeting in the share market. Video after the cut.
