Sat Nav comes to Windows Phone
Nokia Drive Review
by on February 19, 2012
Nokia Drive is one of the primary ways to get Sat Nav on your mobile phone although it’s currently only available on the Lumia range.
It’s very basic – but then again that’s a positive thing in our eyes when it comes to Sat Nav. You’ve got a basic layout that can be viewed in 2D or 3D, and an easy to see arrow that denotes your location.
There’s not a lot more to it really – 3D landmarks will pop up in the big cities, making it easy to see where you’re going if you’re unsure of your surroundings…although this would work better if there were more in the app to keep you on track.
Night mode and day mode make the UI different if you’re feeling a bit fancy, but that’s your lot. There’s no link to Nokia Maps or Bing Maps, which makes it a bit redundant compared to the likes of Google Maps on Android.
Overall, a decent app for navigation, but needs a lot of work to make it more useable.
