ive recently moved over from google maps navigation and im currently struggling to find nokia maps as useful
When i do walking navigation to somewhere, is there any way to get the app to show me which way im pointing (and have it update in real time)?
I found this one of the most essential features on google maps and am finding nokia maps really hard to use without it
My Phone is a lumia 920 and maps version 188.8.131.52
then you tap on the small compass symbol, then it will ask you to rotate your phone several times (to activate compass),
This is only a feature of Nokia City Lens upon Lumia 920 where compass needs to be calibrated.
Happy to have helped forum in a small way with a Support Ratio = 37.0
thanks for your replies. So are you saying that maps CANT show you what way your pointing?
ive tried pressing the compass button as well as the green locator ui button and it never shows real time direction
I find it amazing that an app which has such a major feature that is to give you walking directions between 2 points doesnt make use of the compass, especially seeing as they have another app which does!!!! however, city lens wont let you navigate between 2 points so whats the point? Nokia have got it all backwards here.
Its probably the clincher which is going to make me return my lumia for an sg3, as i use these features a lot
Is there any way to pass this feedback onto Nokia? If i knew a fix to this was at least on the horizon i would have something to think about
thanks for the suggestion. tried this but it doesnt make a difference. still no compass 😣
It would be great to hear from Nokia on this. i have to say that for their 'official' support forums, they really dont offer much/any official support
Well, due to the lack of reply from Nokia on this, im going to recommend people try gMaps, which is google maps for windows phone
It will map your path to your destination AND show you which way your pointing!
