        • Add Iran to HERE Drive, turn-by-turn voice-guided navigation

          HERE Drive does not provide turn-by-turn voice-guided navigation for IRAN? Why? This is unfair and disrespectful to millions of loyal users in Iran.

          • Transit directions for Windows Phone

            Bing Maps has transit directions on the website, Bing Maps for the BlackBerry PlayBook has transit directions. Bing Maps on Windows Phone does not have transit directions. It's baffling that this is even the case, and it's unacceptable. Nokia Maps and Nokia Transit don't yet have directions for all the cities that Bing (and Google) Maps do, and Google hasn't released Google Maps for Windows Phone. Third party programs that access the Google Maps APIs, such as gMaps and Transit Directions eventually stop working due to API changes on Google's part. There is really no excuse for not including Transit…

                    • Add compass support in Bing Maps

                      There is no way to know my current orientation (as it does on iPhones) when I'm looking at the map. This would be VERY useful.

                      • Fix the compass problem at southern hemisphere

                        The compass in southern hemisphere is always wrong, no matter which manufacturer, or which app we are using. and the value is always 180 degrees, resulting in problems with augmented reality apps, which shows stores that are in front of us, in the phone they appear right behind us. thats pretty annoying.

                                  Please give us the option to turn off A-GPS. Because it often makes more sense to record no position than a false position.

                                  • "Find My Phone" Map location in India

                                    Although Bing maps is available for India, its surprising that "Find My Phone" feature doesnt show on map location of the phone. Ringing the phone is a total waste of feature if one leaves the phone in a mall.

                                    Just wondering what could be the technical hickup in enabling the feature?

                                    Its a must. and lack of a solid App that can do this makes it all the more essential. There's not a single app on the market place which is good enough to proxy for this feature. Pretty shameful !

                                    • Save maps to memory card

                                      Some WP8 models DO support memory cards.
                                      In this case, the users already have the possibility to choose where to store new photos, videos or music files.
                                      On the other hand, maps can only be saved to phone memory - which e.g. in Lumia 820 is not THAT big.
                                      Why don't you give the possibility to choose where to store the downloaded maps?

                                      • enable app integration - let Nokia Maps & Nokia Drive be integrated

                                        enable app integration - let Nokia Maps & Nokia Drive be integrated. So when I find a place on maps on my lumia and want to drive there or take the tram there, Drive app and Transit app opens up seamlessly. Also, all favourites that I save on Maps can also be applied to drive & Transit.

                                        • Integrate "We're In" so we can set groups/individuals to check each others location anytime.

                                          We would not have to launch "We're In". Parents could keep an eye on their kids, friends could see each other on map always.
