The Play Store is filled with navigation apps, but only one comes pre-installed on most Android devices. Google's resource isn't without its drawbacks, but it's a pretty solid enough option to satisfy many users out of the box. Of course, the service has to be available in your country before it's usable in any sense. For Panama, the time has come for people to give the app some hands-on time and decide for themselves.

WeTransfer's New Android App Lets Users Send Files Up To 10GB For Free
