It was only just last year that Google introduced lane guidance to their turn-by-turn navigation in Google Maps, adding much needed assistance to finding your way on a new and unknown route. The feature is now rolling out to users in fifteen more European countries, so that they too can find their way.

This latest batch of additions to the lane guidance list more than doubles the available countries supported by Google Maps. With a new total of 23 supported countries, the newest addition of 15 includes the following:

  • Austria
  • Belgium
  • Bulgaria
  • Czech Republic
  • Denmark
  • Finland
  • Greece
  • Hungary
  • Liechtenstein
  • Luxembourg
  • Netherlands
  • Norway
  • Portugal
  • Sweden
  • Switzerland

Google Maps Lane Guidance Europe

This is exciting news not only for those that live in these areas (that still want navigation in their own towns) but also for the millions that travel to these countries every year. Whether looking for the world’s best chocolate, skiing, old world castles or just out for a monstrous drive across Europe, Google Maps will now help you always be in the correct lane as you try to get there.

Any globe trotters excited for lane guidance in Google Maps navigation for these additional European countries?
