  • Ghana
  • Kenya
  • Cote d'Ivoire
  • Senegal
  • Estonia
  • Bulgaria
  • Latvia

There's no news on when we should expect more countries to gain the navigation abilities to Maps for Android, but its good to see the Mountain View-based company at least beginning to stretch their navigation legs.
