You?ve probably been there?one hand on the wheel, another scratching your head as you drive around and around looking for an elusive house or business that really should be right there. But it?s not. You?re lost. All the looking-it-up-in-advance and stopping-to-ask-for-directions stuff just hasn?t cut it. If you?re anything like me, a slowly creeping panic makes you even less likely to find your way. But now that I?ve got Nokia Drive on my Nokia Belle smartphone, being lost has become a faint, distant memory (kinda like how those unlit house numbers look from my car in the dark). And with the latest Nokia Maps Suite for Nokia Belle smartphones release, Nokia Drive is so convenient it?s the obvious remedy to my direction anxiety.
Now when I want to go somewhere, I just input my destination in Nokia Drive and plan my route before I start my engine. Back by popular demand, the updated Route Planner lets me see a preview of my whole route in advance. I can even customize the itinerary by moving my starting point or adding new route points along the way. The new Nokia Drive keeps up with my busy lifestyle, letting me plan multiple trips and save my favorites for future reference. Plus, with a bigger map, Nokia Drive is not only easier to customize, it?s easier to see. And that is pretty important to me.
For now, English speakers in the UK also get premier access to Voice Search for hands-free flexibility in Nokia Drive in Nokia Belle smartphones. Those lucky blokes just tap the microphone icon and speak where they want to go. ?St. Pancras Station,? they might say. And Bob?s your uncle?Nokia Drive will do its thing, no hands needed. Jealous? I know I am, stuck here in Berlin. (It?s hard to find good shepherd?s pie here too, I?m afraid.) But I?m only a wee bit jealous, as I know it?ll be coming soon for other languages and regions too.
Are you now excited to try out the new Nokia Drive? It?s conveniently part of the latest Nokia Maps Suite release, which you can download to your Nokia Belle smartphone from Nokia Beta Labs. In case you have a Nokia Anna smartphone, you can upgrade to Nokia Belle and download the Nokia Maps Suite from Nokia Beta Labs.
