About two years ago Google announced the expansion of its Maps turn-by-turn navigation to 20 countries. Chile didn't figure on that list, but some of the country's Android users reported getting directions and a limited set of functionality on Maps. That seems to be expanded to full support now.

Google Maps' support document has been updated to add Chile as well as Colombia to the list of countries with turn-by-turn navigation. Whether that means the feature is already activated in the two Latin American nations or is about to be, we're not sure. If you're a resident or happen to be there now, you can open your Maps application and check for yourself. Hopefully, it's all already working and you can enjoy some Google directions while making your way around the countries. You still need a connection to access the feature, as the recently announced offline navigation and POS search haven't gone live yet.
