Nokia continues to add further functionality with every upgrade they make to their apps. It wasnt that long ago that Nokia announced Nokia Drive 2.0 and now 3.0 has been announced. Here is what is on tap in Nokia Drive 3.0.
My Commute learns your driving preferences and uses information about the latest traffic conditions to help you choose between the different routes you usually take to get to the places you travel most. It even remembers when you usually leave, providing traffic updates along your route so you’ll know in advance whether there are delays or if you have time to stop by that new café on your way home.
Automatic day/night mode for optimum visibility
Unless you are driving in Lapland in summer, when the sun never sets, you have to probably adjust your settings to day or night mode depending on the light conditions. This does not apply to Nokia Drive anymore: the app will automatically adjust your Nokia Lumia display for better viewing during day or night driving conditions, reducing potential distractions.
Pin to start: find your way with a tap
Last but not least, you can now pin to start your favourite destinations for one-tap access to directions there. This was one of the most requested features of Nokia Drive and we are happy to have implemented it in this update. We think this one of the best examples how to use the Windows Phone tiles: one tap on the start screen and you are all set to drive to your destination. It doesn’t get easier than that – no continuous search and browsing through different options and menus. What destination are you going to pin to start?
This is all in all a very nice update and everyone with a Lumia doesn’t have to wait until Windows Phone 8 to enjoy them. The update isn’t currently in the Marketplace but check back in the next 24 hours.
