Last night Google Maps Navigation 4.1.1 Beta was quietly delivered to UK devices in an update which gives free navigation services. Engadget reports that the service also works on devices with version 4.1.0. Also in development is an enhancement of the app for bicyclists.

TalkAndroid summed up some of the update's features well, saying:

Using both vector and StreetView mapping for easy navigation around the UK, the app also includes voice search along with searching the route ahead to let you know about local hotels, petrol stations or restaurants that you might encounter on your journey.

In a related article on EuroDroid, Google Maps UK head man Steve Lee told ZDNetUK that roundabouts are one of the reasons for the delay in launching the update.
