    I used Nokia Drive for the first time today and experienced some issues with the distance being inaccurate when shown in yards.

    Things I liked:
    Voice turn by turn was great.Speed limit stuff was awesome. Very accurate. I don't know how it updated my speed and the posted speed limit so quickly.

    Things I didn't like:
    Small distances were wrong. Anything in yards was exaggerated. It said 300 yards and the turn was 150 feet away.
    A wrong click took you out of the app. It would be nice if there was a lock to keep you in the app, but I guess that is true of all phone GPS apps.

    Overall, I was very impressed though. I imagine once it leaves beta it will be a 10.

    App runs in the background from my use, which is amazing. I backed out & was texting & it kept navigating

    Hold down the back button while in another app. It will bring you to the multitask screen. I quite like it, although it would be nice if it gave you toast notifications for directions. This way I can keep navigating while browsing the web or soemthing (don't worry, I only do this while being the passenger).
