Google Navigation hacked to work outside of US, and on G1 European users who were thinking of purchasing the Motorola Milestone (the DROID), had one large disadvantage when considering. The lack of Google Maps Navigation, the free turn-by-turn GPS that is included with the DROID in the US.
It appears a user over at XDA Developers has found a hack that will allow users everywhere to use the impressive GPS. Additionally, the T-Mobile G1 can use the Navigation, despite not officially having the Android 2.0 software.
