Google launches free navigation program in Hungary

Initiatives

US-based IT company Google on Thursday presented a navigation program it has launched in Hungary.

The navigation program is integrated with the Google Maps service and allows users to enter businesses or buildings as destinations, not just street addresses, said project manager Darren Baker. It can be used with satellite view and even takes into account traffic jams when planning routes, he added.

The program, which is free of charge, operates on smartphones only with the Android operating system for the time being.

The service works with Android version 1.6 or higher for the time being,  Baker said, answering a question by MTI.
