Update - Version 3.0 is now live in the Marketplace as we just got the notification! Link after the break...
Although we’re still seeing version 2.0 for Nokia Drive on our Lumia, Nokia has finally pulled the covers of their highly anticipated version 3.0 which should be hitting the Marketplace in the next 24-48 hours. It has us so excited, we’re almost yearning to get lost just so we can use it.
Version 3.0, in our opinion, finally makes Drive the app we all wanted and expected from Nokia—sure the other versions were nice, especially for free, but they paled to the pay apps of Garmin, etc.
With Version 3.0, you get the newly added features listed below:
- My Commute learns your driving preferences and uses information about the latest traffic conditions to get you there faster. According to Nokia “This revolutionary feature is so new that we are going to roll it out selectively based on the available traffic data. We are then going to collect experiences that we can learn from and that will help us improving the service. The first country where My Commute is going to be available is the United States.”
- Automatic day/night mode for optimum visibility – self explanatory
- Pin to start: find your way with a tap – you can pin your favorite destinations and routes right to your start screen
Head to Nokia Conversations to read more and we’ll update this post as soon as we see it live on our end. In the mean, you can check here in the Marketplace.
