    Interestingly, the app advertises itself with images of the UK however, I can't download it and it says it's not available in my region.

    EDIT: Scrap that! I've just got it to install! :-D

    Looks like it! Now, if they could just move it out of Beta (and if I could just get a WP8!)...

    Since I have an HTC and haven't been able to try Nokia Drive myself, does this replace the Bing map links with Nokia Map links - or does Nokia Drive provide the directions via Bing Maps?

    I don't want to install this on my HTC if it'll obfuscate my beloved Bing Maps.

    It will not show up in app store. You need the direct hidden link.


    Also on the details page of the app in store, scroll down to the link 'More from NAVTEQ EUROPE B.V' and install Nokia Pulse beta too!

    Finally a navigation app that will allow me to get directions from Bing Maps. I have Navigon, which I really like, but I always have to copy or re-type the address when I'm looking something up

    It doesn't replace or obfuscate anything. It is just an extra app... Bing and Nokia maps are two entirely separate apps.

    super, now all phones can suffer poor battery life.

    Nokia should have got this out of beta before inflicting it on everyone.

    Also...

    1) You can search for directions via Bing (Nokia) Maps, then in the the direction list screen, launch Nokia Drive from there, via the "Drive" button. This button used to launch GMapsPro for me.
    2) Nokia Drive uses the same offline maps already installed on your phone.

    Its a newer version to the one that was on Nokia devices. Apparently the battery drain issue has been addressed.

    Youve got to try out the Surfer Dude voice pack - not sure how long before it would get annoying though - but its alot more friendly and chilled than the standard.

    Why does everyone like this so much better than Bing maps. I get my turn by turn directions fine with Bing maps, is the only difference that Nokia is voice turn by turn?

    Its a proper sat nav feature that competes. I like Bing Maps for walking, but it doesn't even rotate the map in the direction travel, so it can get confusing. In terms of what the competition are providing their customers, a free sat nav solution for all Windows Phone was much needed.

    Initial test ran fine. Altered course twice, and it corrected nicely. Had new streets in as well as a new round-a-bout. Will really pound it today, going from central Seattle, down north and then back up south, 4 stops between the two, lots of roads. Will see how it works, and how well the battery issue is. All running through bluetooth as well. Will post the results around 3:00pm today. But so far, so good. And the surfer dude is funny, although not sure how long I will put up with it, will post that as well. Oh, and it worked all offline, as I will set it for today as well.

    I also tried it on the way to work today. It impressed me to be honest, it avoided two sections of road that are terrible in terms of traffic that other sat navs send you down. Is this a feature of the software or just beginners luck?

    I also went the wrong way a couple of times to see how it reacted and again it did well, re-routing in seconds. I was very impressed with the voice directions, its done so well that you don't have to look at it.

    I did an hour and a half drive on battery and didn't notice any big drop in battery level.

    Very impressed so far, more than ticks the boxes.
