Here Drive + Now Free for all WP 8.1 Users

Here Drive One of the announcements of WP 8.1 was that the Here + suite of premium features would become free to all users. This means that people on Non-Lumias, or lumias such as the 720 which came without the global licences of Here can now fully enjoy those features.

Also Windows Phone 8.1 is powered by HERE, but we wanted to make it even better for a mobile lifestyle. This is why we extend the benefits of free voice guided car navigation in 97 countries to everyone. No matter whether you have an entry-level Nokia Lumia 520, a Samsung Ativ S or a HTC 8X, with Windows Phone 8.1 you get HERE Drive+ for free, saving up to €35.

So great news for anyone on WP in general, as Here being one of the remaining focuses of Nokia should benefit from the increased user base, and whatever licensing fees Microsoft are compensating them with.
