Google today announced another update to its Maps and Navigation products for the Android platform. Now, when users start a navigation session, Maps/Navigation will provide several different routes (old Maps defaulted to fastest), including the shortest and fastest. The routes offered will take into consideration real-time and historical traffic data for each route, and will automatically suggest different options if it determines that there is traffic ahead. The new version of Navigation is available in North America and Europe starting today.
