One issue preventing a bunch of people from viewing Google Maps as the navigation godsend that many others see it as is its limited availability in certain parts of the globe. Well, Google is working to change that. The company has rolled out support for navigation in the countries of El Salvador, Libya, Nicaragua, Paraguay, and Tunisia.

Here are screenshots of the feature enabled in Paraguay, where an Android Police reader has noticed it for the first time.

    Would've come in handy when we spent a year in Nicaragua. Though truthfully, I can't imagine it's all that effective there, as some (most) roads don't have names.
