    It usually updates through the market. Go to "my apps" in the market to update it.

    Success

    Managed to install using APK files since i cant update it in my country.
    But the navigator still not functional...it's just keep tracking.

    However, is it really can function offline? Seems not.

    I'm having the same problem with Google Maps. It eventually (couple of minutes) starts tracking.
    As a test, install Microsoft Bing, and see how quickly it starts tracking.
    Another alternative is to launch the GPS Status & Toolbox app and use the Manage A-GPS State option to manually initialize/reset the GPS before launching Google Maps.

    Google navigation only works in USA, Canada, UK and few other European countries (and maybe Australia - not sure).
