Nokia Drive 2.0 for Windows Phone Lumias now allows for offline navigation, Nokia Transport goes live

Nokia Drive 2.0 offers voice guidance, turn off your wireless data transfer and simply drive on your merry way. Or walk, if that's your thing. Given the price of full-blown navigational software for Windows Phone, Nokia just saved you a pretty penny.
Nokia Maps also got an update, and allows you to pin favorite locations on the home screen Live Tiles, and share them via Facebook or Twitter.
The other member of Nokia's navigational suite for its Lumia Windows Phones - Nokia Transport - went live on the Marketplace today in its turn, starting you off with live detailed schedule and station whereabouts for bus and metro in 80 major cities worldwide. When it rains, it pours for Lumia users.

That Nokia Transport app looks so good on WP, but so drab on my N8! And the information that it gives on the WP version has so much more information than on Symbian; but the trade off, I guess, is that Nokia Maps is more robust on Symbian than it is currently on WP. Still, I am getting a Nokia WP!

How much pre-downloaded map could you store?

I disagree with your first comment. In my country (the Philippines) Google maps provide much more detail than Nokia Maps. And I agree with your second comment, Google should allow users to cache maps for their countries for offline viewing
