    Hi,

    I just got an 8S today after my HTC Desire died after 3 glorious years.

    One thing that has really knocked me back is the apparent lack of voice navigation....

    Is there an update for Maps or a free (small memory burning) app that acts as a GPS voice navigation

    Also is it possible to get Google street view - or something very similar on this device?

    I have seen in other threads that it is possible to download a nokia produced navigation programme - if i do this can i then delete the 'maps' app that came with the device?

    My old phone literally died while i was in town and i bought this phone without any research or knowledge (based upon aesthetics and my Xbox habit mostly).

    Have i bought a crappy phone? It seems a large portion of the internet is now telling me i have (esp since im using chrome haha)

    Thanks in advance!

    Nokia Drive is available but only for a few select countries.

    HERE Drive Beta | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    Nokia Drive+ is now HERE Drive with true offline, turn-by-turn voice navigation optimized for drivers. With turn-by-turn, voice-guided directions and an interface built with drivers in mind, HERE Drive Beta helps you get there safely, even without a data connection. Available for users in the US, the UK, Canada, Mexico, France, Italy, Spain and Germany.

    Street view is natively supported only on Android phones. Even the system browser won't display this as it requires Flash.

    Does anyone know if Nokia are going to make drive available in other countries (i.e. Ireland).

    Or does anyone know who I could contact to find out.
