Google Maps continues the march of progress, officially adding traffic support for 13 European countries today. Aside from the obvious benefit of being able to see traffic in Maps, Navigation will now re-route you based on traffic conditions.


The countries:

  • Austria
  • Belgium
  • Czech Republic
  • Denmark
  • Germany
  • Ireland
  • Israel
  • Luxembourg
  • Netherlands
  • Poland
  • Slovakia
  • Spain
  • Switzerland

The new functionality is live on Android, iOS, and in the mobile browser.

    Israel isn't in europe

    • JjjustIn

      True that ... Yet, they're in EuroVision. Since we both know they are not warmly welcomed into Middle East clubs, others forget and lump them into Europe :)

      Israel has European Mentality and democracy and freedom.

      people there got on average 2 high-end cellphones per person.

      and Israel isn't 3th world country.
      so They Are in "Europe Club"

  • Steltek

    Neat, now I wish we could get 'Navigation' in Luxembourg as well. All the neighbouring countries seem to have it.

  • Kuba

    Well, yeah, live traffic conditions are not so fun while you still can't get Navigation at all. Poland here.
