I've used it for the first time today, on my Lumia 920. I must say, at least in my area, it is very accurate. No rerouting messages, when you don't go the exact way it tells you. It just tells you where to go, when you do. Example, I went straight, instead of making a left, and it just told me to make a u-turn, when I got to the next intersection. It also works through bluetooth, the speed limit settings work pretty good.

This navigation app should be a joy to use for most people. I plan on testing it further, when I get a chance. But, for now, I think it's one of the better navigation apps out there, I would dare say right up there with Google Drive. Actually, I do dare to say. Very Happy

That's awesome to hear! I can't say I had much hope for it, as I've found the older Nokia Drive app to be fairly terrible. I kind of hope us older Lumia users will get a Drive+ app, maybe shortly after we get the 7.8 update. A good navigation app is the one thing I've been truly missing since I made the switch to WP.

I hope that is the case. I would hate to see you and others, who have slightly older devices, not be able to use this app with the 7.8 update. I don't want to see MS and Nokia leave owners of WP 7.5 devices behind. They need to make sure all Gen one and Gen 2 devices get updated, and be able to use at least this nav app.
