    Google navigation on my Android phone doesn’t show any street names

    I own a HTC One S which runs on Android 4.1.1 (JellyBean). And my device has Google maps version Maps 6.12.0. Whenever I am in navigation or ask for navigation my the map shows like “in 500 meters turn right” or “in 200 meters take the ramp”. It will never show any street names or highway names. What I really need to do for making it work properly?

    Re: Google navigation on my Android phone doesn’t show any street names

    hey friend..

    You must be knowing the fact that GPS receivers use signals from a network of satellites and ground stations to search out current location and where you would like to go....
    This information is then linked with the maps that are stored on your phone...
    So , firstly we can say that satellite signals are not completely accurate and trustworthy as they can identify your location but not the exact one .. they can be close but not accurate...
    *
    Also the reason for your problem that is you are not getting the street name while using google navigation could be that your maps are now outdated....
    So , its better to update your maps in your phone first and then try to use your google navigation feature ..

    Hope i helped
    thanks
