It's not available everywhere. Their website lists available countries, and while Guam is not considered a "country" per SE, I imagine it would have been listed separately...and it isn't.
Navigation (Beta) Availability
Google Maps Navigation (Beta) requires at least Apple iOS 5.1+. Google Maps Navigation is available in the following countries:
We're working on bringing the Navigation feature to as many locales as possible; please check back here to see if Navigation becomes available for your country.
**Only available for certain regions
I noticed this last night when I created a walking route. Only the preview was available.
When I choose to drive the route, I can go turn-by-turn!
Same issuein Slovakia
Which is one of the countries where it shoud work - I dont see many posts though so I wonder if there is something wrong with my set up. anyone else having this issue?
The button says "Preview" for me as well (in New York) but when I tap it, the turn-by-turn starts and works normally.
I'm experiencing the same thing - only "Preview" button, no "Start"
I'm in one of the supported countries and still no go.
Anyone found a solution yet?
Does it have anything to do with the cell signal?
The app on my wifi only iPad only shows preview as well but my iPhone works perfectly.
I've tried it on cell signal with my iPhone 5 and still "preview" only.
So I'm from Bulgaria and I only have Preview option too. (Bulgaria is listed as supported). I have an iPhone 4 and my girlfriend has a 4S and it is the same on both, on Wifi and on Cellular. I'm really disappointed from Google's maps and while Apple Maps aren't nearly as good I'll have to stick with them for turn-by-turn (by the way not supported on the 4). I have to admit though that the NAVIGON Europe app works great and has much much more POI in my city than any other mapping solution. But I'd really like to make use of the Google maps app because when it comes to finding a POI fast and easily it has no competition. So please, someone tell me why does this Preview only thing keep happening.
I'm getting the same problem in South Africa. When we traveled to Upington the start function turned into preview and turn by turn navigation stopped. We have no access while driving in Namibia.
Has anyone found a solution. I get preview and I have signal and I've tried it in wifi and still see preview. Unlike the fellow in NYC when I hit preview it doesn't navigate as it usually does. It'll give me directions but I have to manually move to each step. What's the deal with that. Does anyone knew?
I was messing around with this the other day. I can always get it to work turn by turn if the start location is "My Location".
If this was Apple Maps there would be a witch hunt.
To anyone who runs across this thread, I discovered the cause and solution to this issue in some cases.
When you search for a location using google.com or the google app, then tap the directions button, the start and end points are passed to the google maps app. When you select the route and only see the preview option, it's because google.com/app passed a starting set of coordinates to the maps app, so your asking google maps to provide directions between two points, not your current location to a point. Thus no turn-by-turn. Simply tap into the start field and select current location, bam.
Thank you for this solution. It has solved everything.
I tried the suggestion of using my location. Not only did that not work, I don't even have the preview tab that I can click on. It works fine on my iPhone. What's going on with my iPad?
