Nokia Drive video review



Read the full Nokia Drive review

Ovi Maps was one of the saving graces of Symbian as it sang its swansong, and it's great to see Nokia bringing back the best features of Ovi Maps for a Windows Phone alternative. Nokia Drive has the same extensive world map coverage, and the same ability to download maps to local storage, although now this works over mobile data - no desktop computer required. Features are rather limited, but the unified keyword search makes finding a destination in Drive supremely easy, although you do need a data link for this. It's certainly a big incentive for anyone considering Nokia's Lumia 800 handset.

So not as good as Ovi Maps then? Think I'll be sticking with Symbian for a while longer then.

Nokia Drive is crap. Utter, useless crap.

I have tried using it several times on routes that I know well and each and every time it tries to take me miles off course. Do NOT rely upon it. Better still, get a TomTom!

Used this Feb '13 to get from Manchester to Paris and it never missed a beat. Just downloaded the UK/French maps and we were away. When we were in Paris I asked it (without a data connection) to find me the nearest Carrefour. Got us there in under 10 mins. So for me my experience has been virtually flawless and I certainly wouldn't buy a dedicated device having used them in the past. But each to his or her own and all that. I would say the lack of traffic information is a bit of a pain but there's a perfectly good official RAC app for that.
