Finland: HERE, Nokia’s navigation and mapping business, has announced to launch HERE Drive+ for all Windows Phone 8 smartphones. This move will enhance the navigation and extend the benefits of HERE Drive+ beyond Nokia Lumia devices.
HERE Drive+ provides access to global voice-guided turn-by-turn navigation with true offline maps, enabling people to reach their destination safely even without a data connection.
The HERE Drive(+) update introduces additional enhancements to the experience, including My Commute, an innovative feature helping to improve the everyday commute. My Commute learns daily driving habits and provides predictable and personalized commute recommendations based on current traffic conditions. HERE Drive now also comes with the option to upgrade the navigation license from local to global coverage from within the app.
The latest update to HERE Transit further simplifies public transportation, taking advantage of the Windows Phone interface with a streamlined experience and a new panorama view. This new design is expected to make it easier for people to plan routes and access previous destinations and favourites as well as nearby transit stations. HERE Transit will also be available for non-Nokia Windows Phone 8 smartphone.
