    Traveling from Rio to Chicago this week I found out my Here Drive + beta can track my location at 35.000 feet in airplane mode with no wifi ' also giving me details of speed and area that was so cool.

    As far as I'm aware flight mode only stops your phone from transmitting, and GPS is a receiver which Here Drive uses to calculate your position from satellites.

    Therefore, I believe what you are saying -- I wish you would of posted this the other day, as I've just been on a flight myself and I could of tested it for myself.😁

    Nokia Maps tracks in airplane mode, as well (as mentioned in a 928 thread). I tracked myself in real time on a flight last night from Providence to Philly; most of the flight occurring over the Atlantic Ocean.

    For a screenshot just press power and windows button at the same time. No need for an extra camera ;)

    I just took screenshots of both (using in-flight internet). Will post tonight when I'm finally at the hotel. Here Drive is pretty funny with the excessive speed warnings. ;)
