Google’s Turn-By-Turn GPS Navigation May not Come to iPhone

Posted on April 23, 2010 by

Yesterday MacUser reported that google has announced that it’s bringing their free turn-by-turn GPS navigation app to the iPhone.

From MacUser:

Google confirmed at a London press conference that it plans to bring free satnav to other smartphone platforms, including the iPhone, although it wouldn’t say when.

However, according to PCWorld,  Google says this statement is not true.

From PCWorld:

“We did not say we would bring it to iPhone, we said to date we’ve had it on Android and that in the future it may come to other platforms but did not confirm this will be coming to iPhone at all,” a Google spokesperson told PCWorld.

So it sounds like we don’t really know either way whether Google Navigation will come to the iPhone or not.  Hopefully this is an unannounced addition to OS 4, but I wouldn’t put any money on that.  We’ll just have to wait and find out.
