Nokia Drive 3.0 is now available on the Windows Phone Marketplace for Lumia handsets. The latest iteration of Nokia’s turn-by-turn directions app adds a new My Commute feature, as well as the ability to pin locations, automatically switch between daytime and nighttime driving modes, and much more.
My Commute is the most impressive addition to the app. Simply enter your home and work addresses, as well as what time you generally get in the car for work, and Nokia Drive 3.0 will begin learning your driving preferences and offering route suggestions based on live traffic reports and common routes. All of this information is also presented on the live tile, for at-a-glance information before you leave the house.
The app has also received a few visual improvements, like a cleaner and more Metro-style driving interface. It’ll also automatically transition between day and night modes, so you’re not constantly entering the settings menu.
Lastly, Nokia Drive 3.0 will let you save your current location to a new favorites menu and pin locations to your Start screen for easy access. Tapping on the live tile will instantly launch Nokia Drive and begin feeding you directions.
Nokia Drive 220.127.116.1178 is available now on the Windows Phone Marketplace. If, for some reason, you haven’t been prompted to download the update, simply look for the app in the Nokia collection, back out, and then select the app a second time. The update option should now be available. Please note that My Commute is currently only available in the United States, and the app itself is available exclusively on Nokia Lumia handsets.
