    Yer same sent it is as a tip the minute I posted this.

    Having a play with it feels faster and the new button to get straight back to where you are is a great option.

    Can't wait to get my car mount and be able to try it for the first time.

    Since I have factory navigation in my car I will wait for a few more updates before installing again. My 920 has been much more stable without it since I uninstalled it.

    Thanks! I uninstalled the app a few weeks ago when I was experiencing the "rapid battery drain" issue. It seems to be gone now, so I'll reinstall the Nokia Drive app and see if anything changes...
