Google Maps for Android adds Transit Navigation

Google has announced Google Maps 5.7 for Android, bringing a version of its turn-by-turn Navigation service for public transport routes.

Google Maps Transit Navigation brings detailed public transport information for over 400 cities around the world, allowing you to plan your journey more effectively.

Instead of turn-by-turn directions, Transit Navigation offers a stop-by-stop service, making it easier for users traveling in foreign countries to keep track on their journey.

The new functionality also supports multi-tasking so if you leave the app, you'll get a notification telling you to get off at the next stop or when to transfer to a different train.
