Nokia today introduced HERE Auto, its connected car in-dash navigation software suite. HERE Auto is meant to take car-based navigation to the next level and takes advantage of an internet connection so that the data is always up to date. The software offers voice-guided, turn-by-turn directions in 95 countries with live traffic, re-routing, and fuel prices. The system provides helicopter views when traveling on the highway, but will zoom in to street level when the driver approaches their destination. It also provides information such as parking availability and indoor maps. Beyond the car-based software, Nokia also introduced a companion application for Android and Windows Phone devices that can interact with HERE Auto. The HERE Auto Companion App lets users find their car (via LiveSight), monitor in-car sensors, such as fuel level, as well as remotely lock or unlock the car. HERE Auto is being made available to car makers along with APIs so they can add the software to their vehicles. Nokia didn't say with the companion app would become available.

Man. Nokia here is awesome.

So man the more I use nokia here the more I love it and this reading off their website looks like its even more to love. Yes google maps is good but nokia here is simply better. I feel bad for them because they truly make a better product no question but the whole windows phone 8 os is holding them back.... I've been doing this whole phone thing for a little and im hoping that windows phone and break into this ever raging google wave but they just didn't make enough options on the phone software. The nokia hardware is decent but the dang OS is missing a bit and hopefully windows can do something. on a side note hope that Apple does something great with this next iPhone too. Google is decent I know but still. Way to Go nokia HERE development...
