‘Navigation for Google Maps Go’ fixes one of Android Go’s biggest problems [APK Download]

<p style="text-align: center"><a href="https://www.androidpolice.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/Navigation-for-Google-Maps-Go-hero.png" class=" no-style"><img class="alignnone size-hero-size wp-image-505409" src="https://www.androidpolice.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/Navigation-for-Google-Maps-Go-hero-728x410.png" alt="" width="668" height="376" /></a></p> <p>The single largest omission present in Google Maps Go (and, in part, Android Go) was the lack of proper navigation support. If you tried to use the app to get turn-by-turn directions, you were pretty much out of luck, as it would just point you to more fully-featured Google Maps app—pretty much defeating the purpose of a "maps" app, in my opinion. Well, Maps Go <em>still</em> can't do navigation, but Google has seen fit to break that functionality out into yet another Go app: Navigation for Google Maps...

JerryRigEverything's latest video showcases just how easily the Find X snaps.<span id="more-505362"></span></p> <p>The phone fared well in most of Zack's durability tests, thanks to the Gorilla Glass 5 display and aluminum frame.
