• Launch Android Google Maps™ in phone or tablet
• Launch Navigation Viewer client app in smartwatch
• Google Maps™ directions will be shown on smartwatch
• Google Maps™ voice guidance will be played on smartwatch
• Incoming manoeuvres are signaled in smartwatch by simple or advanced vibrations: left turns will be signaled via two short vibrations, right turns will be signaled via three shorts vibrations

ⓘ This app shows only directions, distances, manoeuvres and ETA, map is not displayed on smartwatch.
