Hi folks, I have performed a basic search and didn't turn up an answer to these so am looking for some guidance please.
I love my Nokia Lumia 800 and think Nokia Here (nee Maps) and especially Nokia Drive (which I use every week) are awesome but here are my three questions/requests and hope Nokia is also monitoring these posts.
1. Could we please be told if Nokia are working on a way to use your address book contacts to set a destination. I used to have this on Windows Mobile 6.5 and most other smartphone OS's have this. I find it hard to believe that Nokia with such innovation and being a recognised leader in mapping that this isn't available.
2. Can someone tell me how to enter a junction of two roads into Nokia Drive and Nokia Here as every combination I have tried doesn't seem to work e.g. High street and Bond street
3. Could we please be told if Nokia are working on a way to use a separate volume / audio session to avoid impacting any playing music when using Nokia drive or maps, this will allow a driver to lower the volume of the GPS app and leave the music at the correct level without impacting it. I used to have this on the Smartphone TomTom software on Windows mobile 6.5 also
Thanks and apologies if these questions have already been dealt with elsewhere
About n°1: the method I was told to use does not work:
To navigate to contact: from the contact list, open a contact, click on "map home address", this starts Here maps, then click the "directions" button, then enter, then choose the car, this starts Here Drive.
The problem with this method is that at the "direction" step, the destination is not is exact address you're heading to, it's just the town.
So I still haven't found a way to do that. It seems pretty simple for Nokia to repair the missing link between here maps and Here Drive: just set the full address in the "destination" text field mentioned above.
