Nokia Drive+ beta available for a test drive

The turn-by-turn navigation app Nokia Drive+ is available in beta version from yesterday and will be free and accessible to all Windows Phone 8 customers in the UK, Canada and the United States to download via the Windows Phone Store. As this application still remains in beta while the team fine-tune it for the best customer experience, feedback will play a big part in their end product, giving them an opportunity to improve this application according to fan reactions.

With the beta of Nokia Drive+ users can access full turn-by-turn voice-guided navigation, as well as speed limit warnings, offline maps, and both day and night modes. The announcement made on the Windows Phone Blog means this app is now available on more Windows Phones and the voice announcement of streets and highways should be preferred by many, as opposed to being told directions. Additionally, other route calculation options are brilliant for those who are trying to avoid toll roads, specific freeways, or highways.

To find out more on the features as well as the download options WindowsPhone.com feature a list of the specifics that include full offline support for 89 countries worldwide, voice guided navigation with spoken street names, speed limit warnings and over 60 different voice guidance packs available for free to download. For those requiring 2D and 3D landmarks to help orientation this app will also create, personalize and save your favorite places on your phone and pin them to the Start screen.
