Google today announced that their Maps Navigation beta will now cover 25 more countries including a healthy spread between Africa, Europe, Central America and Asia. This brings the total tally up to 99 countries.

The list of countries includes:

  • 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
  • Zambia

Unlike certain nations like Algeria, Bahrain and Russia where navigation is available only in some parts of the country, these 25 countries will have complete coverage for all major roads. Most of the new additions are in Africa though you do see a few more Asian and European nations in the mix. The updated list of maps should be infinitely helpful to travellers who are increasingly relying on maps on smartphones to help them find their way around.
