Sorry if this has been addressed... I couldn't find the info in Dan's WP8 review so I figured I'd ask here. I'm deciding between the 8X and the 920. Previously, I had a 710 and a Radar...the biggest difference for me was turn-by-turn. I prefer HTC build quality, but I hated the lack of navigation.
So, I'm a little confused as to the current situation. Will non-Nokia devices have turn-by-turn with WP8? Thanks in advance!

Yes, but it's the gimped version provided in Bing maps until the OEM partners release Nokia Drive for their stores. This means that you may not get it for a long time.
You can only guarantee the best turn by turn support through Nokia Phones until we get something more concrete in regards to drive availability on other OEMs

It has turn by turn but no voice.. I believe Nokia held voice to their own devices. Someone can correct me if I am wrong. I just sold my 8X and can verify it only had text turn by turn.

I bought Navigon with the impression that WP7 apps work on WP8. Navigon currently does not. I e-mailed their tech support without a response but read somewhere that they will update the app to work with WP8.
Nokia Drive was "OK" on WP7. I didnt like the lack of ability to select your route or alter a route. It's not ideal for long trips in areas you are not familiar with IMO.
