it does. have you started moving? i know the first time i used it i i said "navigate to......" and the map pulled up with the directions, but nothing happened. i thought "is there a setting or somethin i am missing?" but then as soon as my car started moving it began speaking.
Hi I understand your concern regarding hearing the navigation when using Google Maps. I am happy to tell you that I actually use that feature all the time and it does give voice directions. Just make sure the volume is turned up when you are in the application. When you start moving, it will start talking. I probably would not use it myself if it did not talk
Please let me know if it worked for you.
You might also want to check the Market for an update of Google Maps. It won't show in your downloads, but if you search for Google Maps, you can download the latest version to the phone. The preinstalled version of Maps may or may not have the Navigation included.
I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
Go to Settings>Applications>Manage Apps Then pick "All" tab and find Maps, once you open that screen press "Clear Data" This will clear out your cache for that app.
Now if you are on the Screen that shows the location and list of direction make sure you click on the "Navigate" button. You can also hit the Menu button while in Navigation mode and make sure your Navigation Volume is not on "Mute".
