Google denies plans to bring turn-by-turn GPS to iPhone

updated 04:50 pm EDT, Fri April 23, 2010

Spokesperson claims iPhone support isn't confirmed

Contrary to earlier reports, Google has denied suggestions that it plans to bring free turn-by-turn GPS navigation to the iPhone. A company representative claims an executive was misquoted regarding plans to expand the free service, which is being considered for other platforms. The Maps Navigation feature is currently limited to devices running Android 2.0 or higher.

"We did not say we would bring it to iPhone, we said to date we've had it on Android and that in the future it may come to other platforms but did not confirm this will be coming to iPhone at all," the spokesperson told PCWorld.

The denial does not explicitly reject the iPhone from consideration for Maps Navigation, although the company is careful to avoid official confirmation of such projects.
