Microsoft today announced that a beta version of Nokia's Drive+ navigation application is being made available to all Windows Phone 8 devices in the U.S., the U.K., and Canada. The app had previously only been available to Nokia's Lumia-branded Windows Phones. The application features turn-by-turn voice-guided navigation, offline maps, speed limit warnings, and day and night modes.
