Turn-by-Turn GPS applications that include voice commands and driving instructions
“Check out ""HERE Drive+"" for Windows Phone
GPS turn by turn is useless...it is trash... I would be ashame to release this thing if I was a company.. I lived in Atlanta..and this thing cannot even put you on a road...what's wrong with Microsoft...is this rocket science..? ook at google free gps solution on Android... if those guys can do it, how about MS?
I need Turn-by-turn voice guided gps that I don't have to touch at all.
I'd like to be able to have the map take up the whole screen, as my screen is already pretty small (coming from a 4.3 display)
this is also interesting,
VOTE FOR THIS:
NO MORE a App-list-view,
please make an icon view like in iOS/Android:
Not in German language
Not in German language
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.
