^I think 'Navigation' is part of Google Maps itself. Once you have Maps installed, the navigation icon will also appear.

I hope they will cover whole India pretty soon....

How can we get offline maps. This 3G/2G isn't reliable always and is a PITA.
Well go in options , its available . I have around 200 MB+ maps offline saved . I have selected 550 KM route saved in offline . When i go travelling just use the same offline maps . I know the route but open google maps just for the heck of it . The only issue to open offline saved maps menu it requires internet , then you can switch it off and work from saved maps .
