Nokia Gives HERE Drive More Real-Time Smarts

Posted by at 11:25 am on November 26, 2013

Nokia today announced a major update to its HERE Drive navigation application.

HERE Drive, which is available to all Windows Phone 8 devices, offers step-by-step, voice-guided navigation. When planning routes, the app now shows a list of all the turns before the driver begins navigating. The app now also provides an overview of the entire route with real-time traffic included, so drivers can see ahead of time whether or not they should take an alternate route. The live traffic feature is available in all views of the map. HERE Drive is now better at calculating estimated time of arrival thanks to the more accurate, real-time traffic data. Last, Nokia has added a feature that automatically geotags the driver’s parking spot when they complete a door-to-door route.

The driver can then use HERE Maps’ LiveSight feature to find their car, or view it on a map. HERE Maps is free to download from the Windows Phone Store.
