I was looking at a new phone a week ago and the phone bloke was talking this up for Sydney, so I expect its worldwide, maybe.

Yes, worldwide - as uses internet (I think Google bought them a while ago). Beware remote areas have no signal, so check you can download offline maps.

HereWe Go is also OK - downloadable offline maps. (Google Maps also has a map download facility).

WAZE is good because its interactive, live reports from other drivers in front of you.... not just navigation.     saved me heaps of times from those pesky motorcycle police hiding behind trees  and sitting on the onramps along the M1.   Surprizing how accurate WAZE is with Police reports and shit traffic, I recommend it.   But as mentioned,  its only as good as your internet coverage   :(

I used WAZE while travelling in Israel last year worked great, I think it was developed there, Google bought them out.
