Add this app to your lists
This application brings you a simple shortcut to launch Navigation for Maps. It relies on your device having the latest Google Maps installed and simply launches the Navigation part of it. If you don't have Google Maps installed, then this application will not work on your device.

Why did I make this?

I used to have a shortcut for Navigation, but for some reason it's disappeared. I think it's down to the latest Google Maps update.

Anyway, the source code for this app is open source, check it out at

Recently changed in this version

    ....for making it so simple to start Google navigation. Brilliant stuff! One question. If you already have a route in progress when you exit the app and then re-enter via the shortcut, a dialog appears saying, "you already have a route in process...skip

    You took the the time to do what Google should have left alone from the start. You are an amazing person.
