Nokia's HERE navigation apps unveiled for non-Lumia phones, too, add My Commute feature
0. phoneArena 09 Jul 2013, 09:27 posted on
This way, if you happen to have an HTC 8X or Samsung ATIV S handsets, you will be able to download the HERE Drive, HERE Drive+ and HERE Transit apps, along with the new Traffic info and My Commute features from the Windows Store. The novel features will look at the time in the morning and warn you that you might be late for your regular commute to work unless you head out immediately, due to some heavy traffic ahead, and the info can be taken out on a double Live Tile at the home screen, if needed...

This idea of offline navigation is quite good. They just need to polish Bing Maps a bit more cos there are still a lot of inaccuracies.

bad move. It has distinguish Nokia´s phones from others windows´ devices and make it more exclusive and a wiser choice. Now, samsung fanboys will be elated that finally they´ve got a reliable nav solution even though they were whining that google maps was better and Nokia´s solution is half-baked, bad, etc. Change one´s tune as always. Here you go Nokia haters. They giving their best

Nokia is never going to give it's best 'feature' to others, in my opinion that is the camera...

Nokia is ready to give out this app to other vendors, but it is totally partial toward its own customers who helped them to build windows market. This is still not available for lumia first generation phone.
seems complete affect of MS. As MS too has a better version on Skype in non-windows phone.

Offline navigation was just about the last exclusive thing to Nokia handsets, so long Nokia, you'll be missed and Microsoft and samsuck will pick up your patents

liveing in stoneage man if your talking about wp then it doesnot matter now that maps goes live for others since nokia phones itself are unique

can't agree. Nokia's apps were factors which helped to differ oems as the hardware was almost identical (except design).

Wtf that's exactly my point, no more reasons to get a Nokia handset, at least lumia range, I still love my 808 PureView, still the best camera lol
