Turn-by-Turn GPS applications that include voice commands and driving instructions
“Check out ""HERE Drive+"" for Windows Phone
They have this already
Pay off the licence (I know that is the issue) and give US turn by turn with out having to touch the screen.
This should have been included in Mango. End of story.
Yes but we still have to keep taping the screen for the lady to give us directions which is counter intuitive when you dont want the phone in your view and you want both hands on the wheel or shift. You just want to hear the directions.
tested the navigation yesterday and it works fine. i only tap once when i missed the exit and recalculate.

What's there is nice, so far, but there is room for improvement. Don't make me tap, and beep at me when I get close to the turn so I know when it's time to turn. Plus, pre-downloading and caching relevant maps (source, destination, and turns) will help when driving in and out of dead zones or "home" areas (when data is off for roaming).
Please do not forget to put this into CHT/CHS/KOR UI again. I am very disappointed that MS has pull this out from those 3 languages (Even setting the search language to ENG(US/UK)), not sure if they think the Asia market is not important at all, and can be ignored?

While this is somewhat already available on Mango, voting +1 on this because this feature needs to be improved. One being that it should not require a tap at every turn to hear the next command (major distraction to driving!). Second is that it should give you a command when it's actually at the right place to do so, not giving a command 5km beforehand and expects you keep count on how many kms you've gone since.

Isn't Nokia already supposed to do it? I think so...
GPS without internet connection and a telephone handset offlin need to be very important for all Asian countries.

This is already available, in the US market at least. Here is a sympathy vote: +1
If it totally copies Google Navigation then I am a very happy bunny!
THREE VOTES from me along with the notifications centre/pane.
And make it available everywhere where you have maps available, not just a select few markets.
asdedc...you can get it at the following link:
Seems compatible with WM7. Just download and install.

asdedc: Garmin Street Pilot will download your data on demand (as in, you select an area before going and it will pre-load it so it doesn't have to roam).
Turn-By-Turn GPS app I used, also let you literally paint the areas of the map you wanted to save on your phone and download them. It's very simple, and effective. Turn-By-Turn is only $4.99, so I'd go that route first. Garmin's better though.
StanInAsia: thanks, but there is no app like that in the marketplace :-(
1: there is nothing in that rumor about the OFFLINE navigation.
2: if enough people VOTE HERE, then the solution will come much faster.
This just in from winromrs.com which has come straight of a Nokia marketing poster http://bit.ly/mQkyaL
“With Nokia drive safely at the finish – including 3D representation and voice-controlled navigation"
So remove your precious vote now and use it on something else!
asdedc...you can try Co-Pilot Live, it's not free but runs its maps on-board. The only thing you need internet for is if you want live traffic conditions (which I disabled). Not sure if CPL is compatible with WM7, but works like a dream on my WM6.5.
