An updated version for Australia would be appreciated. Though we are quite an isolated country with kangaroos jumping around the city!

Seriously though, please update the navigation for Australia; currently it's no use to me if it only works in Europe and US.

@wizzy, @anonymous

Not for Nokias. Not for Bada OS.

Google Maps NAVIGATION is for ANDROID ONLY.

The rest of you get vanilla google maps.

The best Navigation Ever! Free, easy, decent and it looks great! Also the dutch voice navigation works fine. Just tested it on my android phone.

In Europa i don't think it will be a name to remember Google Maps, maybe at the level of each country to use the service. Also in Europa it's a lack of the Android fones, Nokia is the best friend of europeans. Do you know how much will cost you to use the internet from Italy to Holland, maybe the same amount as the fone himself. How can you travel through Romania till Ireland , all the companies Vodafone, Orange will charge you every bit, byte, kilobyte, dont you think it's better just to go on the computer and download all the countrys on the device and just hit GO.Nokia will rule at least Europa for a long time, in Pfones and GPS capabilities.Ciao

Nokia maps has an advantage because it does not require an internet connection. Many people have told Google, directly and via other sites, to offer an offline option for Google Maps but there has been no word on this.

I think Nokia is addressing the POI issue together with Yahoo as well as 3rd party listings. Should improve dramatically, like it has in the EU. Works fine here.

What I see as an utter fail though, is the following.

In the EU, you are likely to be crossing borders, especially in those situations where you need navigation. That is one of the most common use cases. And guess what, Google maps will NOT be used because of the crazy costs per Mb and usage because it does not have offline maps.

Terrible.
