google maps.... have navigation enabled only in u.s.a and neighbours.

this is a modded google maps 5.2.1 app that would enable navigation WORLDWIDE including INDIA . and thus you wont need any other navigation app.

and undoubtedly google maps are the best maps available for android ,iphone, windows etc.
as google maps have already updated to offline maps support...

i have personally tried the mod in india and works very well...

other modded gmaps are older versions but this one is new..

INSTRUCTIONS:
download and extract the .apk
1. install titanium backup.
2. in titanium backup, go to apps and wipe data for maps(i.e official maps).
the mod wont work if data is not wiped..
3. after wiping data, you can also clear cache. so that nothing of original maps is there..
4. now uninstall the maps using titanium backup .
5. you may perform a reboot (though worked for me without reboot).
6. now install the moded maps.
7. again you may try reboot if not working (worked for me without reboot)
and you are done....

I'm getting application not installed problem too. I'm using the JPM ROM. If I install it through ADB it gives me [INSTALL_FAILED_SHARED_USER_INCOMPATIBLE]

I removed data + cahce of old maps and then uninstalled with abslute system root..

This'd be awesome if it worked, any workaround for this?

So this most likely is a problem related with JPM.
I also cannot push anything to /system/app, even after remounting (I get a 'permission denied').

Thanks for the file though. Now I only need to wait for always root kernel for this rom :)

It is because the adb in JPM is locked... You cave to unlock it or put a custom kernel :)

well you have to follow instructions carefully....
coz if a bit of info of official gmaps is there, it shows install failed.

you may try reboot after uninstalling data and cache and the maps apk

    tried many version, and still says: application not installed.

    google earth comes with google maps, no need of seperate install.
    just go to layers and check sattelite view...

    If everything fails, go to market, search for google maps and install 5.2.1 version.
    Reboot phone
    Open titanium, wipe data, remove app, remove dalvik cache
    Open root explorer, go to /data/dalvik cache and remove the maps.apk
    Reinstall modded file and it should work
