    Had a few errors that wouldn't let me download it (same for shuffle party weirdly enough) but eventually it worked. Can't wait to test it out.

    Maybe because the other language variants are not ready.

    I'm also in Canada and it wouldnt let me download it yesterday, but I tried again today and it worked. Maybe it was being rolled out in regions. Best maps app by far!!
    I heard they're also looking to release Nokia Transit, which is for public transit. It would be neat if they just had Nokia Maps which combined both

    If you add a favourite then go to favourites and tap n hold, you can rename them. This isn't obvious at first so I thought I would mention it.

    Works great on Verizon. I did notice, however, that when my phone is connected with my bluetooth car system, you can't hear the voice.

    Weird I can connect to my cars Bluetooth system and I can hear the voice from the navigation. I have an HTC 8x connected to ford sync on a 2010 focus.

    On WP7, my car has to be set to "BT Audio source" for Nokia Drive to speak. Bing maps would speak over the "Phone" method which lets it cut in over whatever you are listening to. Somewhat annoying.

    if it's the language pack why its not released in other country's. the only thing I can say is: release it now, add language packs later. At least in the netherlands please!!!!!!!!!.

    Nokia Drive already works on Lumias in over a hundred languages, so it's not a language pack issue. The restriction to UK, Canada and UK most probably seems to be a licensing deal. Nokia doesn't simply give out their apps for free.

    This needs integration with the native apps map. My dell venue pro had turn by turn voice directions with the default maps app. Not sure why we need a separate Nokia app for that now.

    Downloaded for my 8x, tested it out the other day! Its fantastic! Luckily I never drive so I wasnt missing my google navigation that much, but I really thin Nokia Drive is better, a lot more accurate and even tells you wheres gas stations and what the speed limit is...

    Does anyone know how to install the voice turn by turn though?

    Open the app, press the settings (3 . & 3 ---) after settings, navigation voice, download new, check for English street names announced, then select it.

    It's not available on Mexico yet. I just hope they don't take long to release it in other countries.
    It would be great to have it on my 8X.

    How does the phone verify that you are in the UK, US or Canada?
    -GPS?
    -Service provider?
    -Phone settings?

    Any way to get around this and get the app to work in other countries?

    It checks the country code of your SIM card. I managed to install and use it by changing the region setting and using my English SIM card, but it won't start when I use my German SIM.

    Is there any way to get see a list of the directions for my trip? I used it the other day for directions and couldn't figure out how to see a list of the directions for my trip. That's pretty basic functionality, I"m surprised this doesn't have it, so maybe I just don't know how to find it.

    That would be the country-code assigned to your Microsoft account. You specify the country during your WP device's initial setup, and isn't easy to change afterwards (impossible without going through Microsoft support).
