On the other hand, we tested Google Maps GPS Voice Navigation in roads of Kathmandu, Narayangarh, Biratnagar, Butwal and Pokhara it worked well perfectly everywhere. However, Google maps is yet to offer best alternative route to travelers during navigation.

We tried to navigate Pokhara airport from a place called Ramghat, it could barely give alternative routes. Some of the roads in the Google maps need updating as well.

You can exit navigation from the dashboard (notification center control) or directly from the Google Maps app. As of now automated Google Maps GPS navigation is in English, and let’s wait to see if it will come in local Nepali and other languages in recent future.
