In times past, we've seen Google add new countries to its list of supported territories for Google Maps Navigation shortly before we see the update itself rollout. Today, there's been a pretty huge change to that document that added 10 new nations including Bulgaria, Estonia, Ghana, Iceland, Ivory Coast, Latvia, Lebanon, Lithuania, Senegal and Slovakia (for some reason Singapore appears to have been added to the list, even though that nation already has Navigation).

Right now, it doesn't look like Navigation has actually appeared for the countries in question, but if history repeats itself, the service should appear for residents of these nations before too long. Possibly after having the names removed from the list and then replaced a week or two later.

    Thanks to you guys at Android Police!!! Fantastic job...

    Honestly, ever since the iOS maps came out, I've been watching and waiting for Maps to be updated. Almost everything that gets Google's attention has been updated in the past 4 days, wonder what's coming to Maps. As long as they don't go too much in the direction of the new Google+ and maybe Currents

    These countries are flopping on that page - Google keeps removing and re-adding them. What the hell are you doing, Google?
