Hi Andre900,

 

Thank you for your post and welcome to the forums!

 

Unfortunately it is not possible to synchronise favorites or routes on Nokia Drive 3.0 as they can be stored only on the phone memory.  However, it is possible to transfer favorites from maps.nokia.com to Nokia Maps, but not to Nokia Drive. Please see here for instructions on how to set up the sync for Nokia Maps.

 

Hope this helps,

Duh!!! How dumb is that? Non Windows models did not have any problem managing to synchronise favorites on Nokia Maps with driving instructions.

Re: Nokia drive 3.0 unable to sync favorites

It might be me, but if Nokia maps is installed on my Lumia 800 and the favourites are synced and stored on my phone, I would have thought Nokia Maps & Nokia Drive (both by Nokia) apps could access these synced favourites, after all what is the point on having to enter every destination for 'drive' when it's already stored by you in the 'maps' app. This does to things: 1. Annoys people having to enter things twice. 2. Wastes storage space on the phone (even though it might only be a small ammount). Also Nokia maps on my C6 seems more accurate, as I live at number 9 and my C6 says either 11 or 13, but Nokia Drive says number 24. Which is on the other side of the street and 5 houses away. Even my Garmin says number 11. It's. A pitty that all Satnav units and apps could not allow the user to calibrate then to there exact position. E.G. while outside our home, use a calibration option and press cursors until it shows the exact location. From then on everything should be correctly displayed.

Re: Nokia drive 3.0 unable to sync favorites

Hi Guys, U can use your previous maps application to sync with OVI, see in favorites tab.

 

further for the Nokia Drive Sync, it seems that u can use nokia maps to select a favorite location and start the navigation from Nokia maps itself, this will start nokia drive app and create the route. 

 

Hope this helps..

 

Cheers

That is a solution, but so far it only works in some of the Lumia models.

Re: Nokia drive 3.0 unable to sync favorites

I completely agree with you RiyadhDriver, this is an indictment on Nokia. Nokia provided better service with ovi maps 4-5 years ago, which is a real shame as it use to be something to rave about. But now its just poor half integrated solution that is spread across many different operating systems with only some still being supported. Poor form Nokia..
