    Hello. Having some major problems with Here Drive +. I'm running it on my new L 830 with Denim and 8.1 and my wife runs it on a L 810 on 8.0. But the problems are the same in Southern California USA:

    1. Navigation freezes. It will tell you to make a turn, for instance, and will freeze there and not give you the next direction.

    2. Poor pinpointing of location. The GPS tracking is off -- and will change it's mind about where your car is. That's a big problems because it thinks you're on a sidestreet, not the freeway, and recalculates.

    Is Nokia planning to update/fix this app anymore. Are there any alternative for voice turn-by-turn?

    Thanks!

    Just used Here Drive+ with my 1020 w/ DP and Cyan over the weekend on a roadtrip, and I had no issues whatsoever. Maybe besides the atypical slightly out-of-date GPS maps ;P

    About to put here drive through its paces tomorrow in Christchurch New Zealand on a 930 running cyan. Will let you know.

    Does your device freeze on other tasks?

    No. It's only Here Drive+ that's freezing. Check out the recent reviews on the Windows Phone App store. Seems like other people are complaining of freezes. This is a big problem. Is there a reliable voice turn-by-turn navigator available for WP?

    Yes, I am having same problems and more. I have to enter destination several times. It seems it has to reboot all the time. I loved this app before 8.1.
    Now its junk. I took some advice and deleted the app with the intent of reinstalling. Now I cannot find it in the app store.

    As a sidebar, I was using waze, then after the 8.1 update, It started acing up alo.

    I have been using copilot and it works well for me but its not free but there are many more options here drive + but again they are in app purchases which I have got all of them.

    Thanks for the tip. I see there's another voice navigator turn by turn that was updated just a few days ago: Aponia GPS. Anyone try that one out?

    Here Drive+ has always made my 920 run hot - it can barely keep a charge while plugged in when I use it. But recently it crashes after a minute or two of navigating. It has become unusable.

    Yep. Here Drive has shafted every single time I needed it. Freezing, telling me to go the obvious wrong direction, dropped signal. I live in New Jersey and have all the maps downloaded on my phone.
