Google Navigation officially released on Android 1.6

This was really unexpected, Android 2.0‘s most talking about features, Google Navigation, is now officially available to all Android 1.6 (Donut)devices.

A few weeks ago we launched Google Maps Navigation (Beta) as a free feature of Google Maps on Android 2.0 devices. Today we’re expanding availability of Google Maps Navigation to devices running Android 1.6 (Donut) and higher, such as the T-Mobile myTouch 3G and the G1.

Unfortunately HTC Hero‘s (Android 1.5) aren’t compatible yet (but are rumored to get an Android 2.0 update in the future). You can download Google Navigation now in the Android Market.
