Google Mobile Maps Now Give Turn by Turn Directions for Pakistan

We have covered before how Google Maps works, and then also reviewed when Google Maps started giving driving directions for Pakistani audience.

Now, widely considered as a big breakthrough, Google Mobile Maps also offer Turn by Turn navigation directions for Pakistan.

Google Mobile Maps are community driven maps, through Google Map Maker. We know that Pakistan netizens posted more localized information and data to the Google’s ‘map maker’ than the web users of any of the 160 countries which are using the leading internet search engine’s experiment.

How to get Turn by Turn Navigation Direction on Google Maps

You need to have Google Mobile maps installed and working on your mobile phone. (Be informed that GPRS data transfer charges may apply).

Download Google Maps for your Mobile device from here

Install application and simple open Google Mobile Maps, from menu, select “Get Directions”

Here you need to select

  • Start Point
  • End Point
  • Travel by (Car, Public Transit or Walking)

Hit the search button – If found, you will get a detailed suggested path as a result of your query and enjoy the turn by turn directions on your mobile devices.

Paid mobile navigation service providers must be worried with Google’s this move.
