Google Maps navigation beta now available in El Salvador, Libya, Nicaragua, Paraguay and Tunisia


A beta for Google Maps navigation is now available in El Salvador, Libya, Nicaragua, Paraguay, and Tunisia. While some countries may take this feature for granted, other territories don’t widely have access to this type of free software. For example, residents of North Korea have combined their efforts to produce a community developed version of Google Maps.

In the case of these aforementioned countries, Google appears to be testing the waters, so routes might not always be the most reliable. Nevertheless, if you get lost during a road trip and have no idea where you are, a few taps on your phone’s display just might save the day.
