Google has pushed out a new beta version of Google Maps for Android in the UK. The main new feature is that UK users can now get turn by turn directions on Android handsets, a feature that’s been available to US Android users for several months.

Google Maps Navigation shows you a 2D or 3D map while providing you step by step directions. You can also add gas stations, ATMs, or other locations to the maps.

If you’ve got a Google Nexus One, you can also use the speech to text input feature to get directions by talking to your phone instead of tapping away at the on-screen keyboard.

Engadget reports that Google Maps Navigation should work with all Android 1.6 and newer phones in the UK.
