    I have a 520, 521, and HTC Pi86100. *The 520/521 comes with WP8 and HERE DRIVE/MAPS. *Is it possible to install HERE DRIVE/MAPS to the HTC running WP 7.5? *With the 52x, I go to STORE/APP to select and install HERE DRIVE. *Is there a similar method with WP 7.5? *
    *
    I thought that HERE DRIVE/MAPS are also available for non-Nokia WP 7.5 smart phones.

    TIA,

    Here drive is only for WP8 devices. Nokia WP7.5 devices can install Nokia Drive. It is essentially the same software with some missing features.

    Thanks. I know that HERE DRIVE/MAPS work for WP8. But I'm interested in running HERE DRIVE/MAPS on the HTC with WP 7.5. I've seen other HTC phones with WP 7.x and HERE DRIVE. But when I try to install HERE DRIVE for WP 7.5, the app would not load.

    Also faced the same problem with the 52x WP 8 phones unless I install HERE by going into STORE/APP. Perhaps there's a similar technique for WP 7.5.

    Do you know the exact procedure to install Nokia Drive? I clicked on the link below, but the app would not install. We have an HTC with WP 7.5. With WP 8, I have to go in STORE/APP to install HERE DRIVE. Is there a similar process for WP 7.5?

    Please provide more details/link about this process (change oem marketplace). The HTC Pi86100 phone is unlocked. Originally locked to AT&T. Now on T-Mobile.

    Thank you. So we need to "jailbreak" the HTC to install Nokia Drive because this app will only load on a Nokia phone running WP 7.5? It appears that my HTC Titan II is stuck with the original AT&T FW. Does this mean that I cannot install the Nokia Drive app?

    TIA,

    Thanks for your input. Do you have the HTC Titan II phone? Will the force upgrade to WP 7.8 work for any HTC phone running WP 7.5? My understanding is that a custom ROM is needed, but the HTC Titan II does not have a custom ROM.

    There is version 3.1 Nokia Drive for WP 7.5, but app won't load with the stock AT&T Titan II. I have not seen Nokia Maps for WP7.x.

    SevenEither upgraded without problem. Try install that on your computer and plug your phone. If there is not Wp 7.8 on Microsoft's servers it will not modify your phone. So just do the steps 2 - 4

    And here is the FAQ of the SevenEigther developer:
    "Q: Is XXXX device supported? A: Yes. This is completely device independent. The update works using the UpdateWP created by Microsoft, so it's roughly the equivalent of Zune updating."

    It appears that I cannot complete step 2 per your instruction because I have the HTC Titan II Pi86100.

    Supported WP7S devices:
    *Omega (HTC Radar C110e)
    *Titan (HTC Eternity X310e)
    HTC Radiant (Titan II) IS NOT SUPPORTED!
