Nokia’s HERE Drive+ to be available for all Windows Phone 8 smartphones

Nokia’s HERE Drive+ will be available for all Windows Phone 8 smartphones.

This move will extend the benefits of HERE Drive+ beyond Nokia Lumia devices.

HERE Drive+

HERE Drive+ provides access to voice-guided turn-by-turn navigation with offline maps, enabling people to reach their destination safely even without a data connection.

The step to broaden the availability of its navigation app correlates with new releases of HERE Drive(+) and HERE Transit, both available for download from the Windows Phone Store within the coming days.

The HERE Drive(+) update introduces enhancements to the experience, including My Commute, a new feature helping to improve the everyday commute.

The latest update to HERE Transit further simplifies public transportation, taking advantage of the Windows Phone interface with a streamlined experience and a new panorama view.

HERE Transit will also be available for non-Nokia Windows Phone 8 smartphones in selected markets.
