Nokia Drive 2.0 for Windows Phone Lumias now allows for offline navigation, Nokia Transport goes live
Finally the day has arrived for Nokia Lumia devices to receive what their Symbian cousins have been enjoying for a while - free voice-guided navigation that doesn't use your data allowance to download map and navigation details.

Instead, now you can download detailed maps, POI and everything, of more than 100 countries worldwide on six continents where 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.
