Ghana: Google Maps has added driving directions in its African maps. Drivers with GPRS navigation systems or mobile phones with such applications can use Google Maps to get directions to their destinations.

According to the Google Africa Blog, “Well, the wait is over, we’ve recently launched driving directions for maps in Africa. So the next time you are in Ghana driving from Kotoka International Airport to Hotel Novotel in Victoria Borg, Accra or you just want to drive from Nairobi to Kampala, visit Google Maps and allow us to help you get to your destination.

“Our African online cartographers have helped make our African maps what they are today, through our community mapping tool Google Map Maker. Try out the driving directions today. If anything is amiss, you can correct it in Google Map Maker.”

Google said the addition of this feature is the latest in a series of launches which included local domains for most of the African countries and is testimony to “focus on improving geographic content in Africa.”
