Google Maps Navigation already covers a massive amount of countries, but today their coverage is getting even better! Google has now added support for 25 new countries, including very small nations such as Djibouti and Andorra.

With today’s addition, Google Maps Navigation now covers 99 different countries in total, which is a little over half of all the world’s nations!

The complete list includes the following: Andorra, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Burundi, Central African Republic, Croatia, Djibouti, Gabon, Guadeloupe, Haiti, Lesotho, Libya, Maldives, Mongolia, Puerto Rico, Republic of Congo, Samoa, Serbia, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Togo, Tonga, Tunisia,Vanuatu and Zambia.

Keep in mind that these new map updates might help residents in some of these countries, but they are equally targeted at international travelers that might be passing through. In fact, some of these countries don’t officially offer Google Play support to their residents, making it impossible to get ahold of these updated maps unless you come from another country.

With today’s addition, Google Maps Navigation now covers 99 different countries in total, which is a little over half of all the world’s nations! Not bad at all.

Of course it’s important to note that even though Google Maps Navigation has fairly wide coverage, it’s still technically listed as a “beta” service, as there is room for continued improvement when it comes to the overall accuracy of the maps. That said, you’ll be hard pressed to find another mobile devices navigation app that comes close to offering as detailed of a navigation experience as you’ll find with Google.
