The latest update to the already feature filled Nokia service for WP “Nokia Drive” just hit version 3.0 bringing some pretty cool features such as:
- My Commute learns your driving preferences and uses information about the latest traffic conditions to get you there faster. According to Nokia “This revolutionary feature is so new that we are going to roll it out selectively based on the available traffic data. We are then going to collect experiences that we can learn from and that will help us improving the service. The first country where My Commute is going to be availableis the United States.”
- Automatic day/night mode for optimum visibility – self explanatory
- Pin to start: find your way with a tap – you can pin your favorite destinations and routes right to your start screen
Worth noting that the features seen above are what Nokia showcased at the WP summit and promised to bring to the current devices, if my count is correct they’ve delivered the “play to” app, the camera extensions to some markets and now Maps 3.0; leaving only the “data counter” and the promised Zynga games to be released hopefully soon.
EDIT: It would seem that another feature added is the ability to set favorites “as a destination” as well as saving a favorite from the drive screen itself; which is something I’ve been asking for for months, Yay!
