Video: Nokia Lumia 800 Uncovered: Drive

| November 7, 2011 | 25 Replies

 

In between lectures right now, so can’t hear what’s being said in this video. Hmm…probably for the best. :p

Here’s Nokia Drive in action, from leaving London ExCeL heading off to the London Eye. Just start it (possibly from the tiles) find where you want to go, click navigate. The view switches to the sat nav mode which can be further optimised for driving if the phone is in landscape.

The second in a series of in depth videos looking at the Nokia Lumia 800 and some of it’s best features: http://nokia.ly/unuRGU. This one is all about Nokia Maps on Nokia Lumia – specifically the Nokia Drive feature.

This was recorded from the Excel right up to getting to the London Eye. We actually saw the London Eye as a 3D landmark on Nokia Drive first before seeing it outside. That was kinda weird.

    Ah, this proves it: MNB is paid off with big bucks by Nokia/MS to say good things about Lumia and WP! I mean come on, I am sure a student like Jay could not otherwise afford to ride around London in a taxi!!

      Why the hell would that be Jay? Are you all fools? Can’t you read where he says

      “In between lectures right now, so can’t hear what’s being said in this video”

      So he recorded a video, but doesn’t know whats being said in it? Click on the video to open it in youtube. It has been uploaded by nokia

      • Viipottaja

        1) /s means I was being sarcastic
        2) It say’s Jay @jaymontano on the video…

        • http://thescurvydawg.blogspot.com Ronit

          I was wrong. You were right. We have been betrayed!!

      • Just Visiting

        @Ronit…Well, the video does identify the speaker as Jay/@jaymontano….

        Anyway, thanks Jay, for the mention about ‘walking’ – my question had been if we would still be able to get navigation while walking even though the app is called Nokia Drive.

        • Jay Montano

          That bit they put in was when I was talking about the N8. We were just talking randomly about stuff we like, and I mentioned how they’re maps is pretty brilliant, using it everywhere whether in a car, or train or walking or whatever or something like that.

        “So he recorded a video, but doesn’t know whats being said in it? Click on the video to open it in youtube. It has been uploaded by nokia”

        I had not seen the final clip. I knew what I said, but I didn’t know if there was anything else. Plus there’s some bits that was added where I wasn’t even aware they were filming.

    • Jay Montano

      lolol, Steve Ballmer was the one filming it.

      • Viipottaja

        Oh man, WP must be doing like crap if Ballmer has to take a taxi now! :D ;)

      • Hypnopottamus

        LOL. Good stuff.

  • Deathcoder

    damn… you have huge hair!

    nice vid! :)

  • Cod3rror

    Congrats Jay, you’re famous dude!

    Why isn’t that asshole Nokia contacting me? I’d give them a a fair review.

    Like what do I do if I want to plan multiple routes? What if I want to avoid the road ahead? What if I don’t an address but have coordinates instead?…
