Thank you for your post.
We currently do not have any information on when or even if Nokia Drive 3.0 will be released or what features it may contain.
I recommend you keep an eye on the following Nokia websites for all the latest and offical news.
I always loved my Nokia phone because of the Maps and Navigation, N95 & then a N8, so the next phone i got was the Lumia 900, logical choice? But i'm so disapointed, only my favourites can be imported, not the route, and the favourites can only be imported into maps not drive, so it will show you the route but you can't navigate there?? How stupid is that?? You can download the maps to drive and use it offline, but the maps you can't use offline. Whats the use of hving a adresbook with everybody name and addres and you can't use it in the phones gps/maps program. Please Nokia, i've given you a chance, but i think i should have gone for the Samsung SIII
Nokia Drive 3 still does not have real-time traffic updates. Which was available on my N8 but not on my Lumia 800. So I have a satnav that drives me into the back of traffic jams. A huge step backwards and frankly makes Nokia Drive useless.

I think the Nokia Lumia 800, is a massive disappointment
You now need 3 icons on the front screen for maps, nokia maps and drive
drive and nokia maps do not interact, so favorites are effectively useless in drive
Nokia why did you go backwards from the N97 mini system?
even if you found all your favorites you cannot click on the place on the map in drive and save that location
or drive to it.
I agree I should have purchased a Samsung, unless Nokia sorts this out real soon, this will be the last Nokia I ever by. It is really stupid to go backwards, I would. Have thought Nokia would improve on what they already have NOT go from a single functional system to a 2 part thing that is a pain in the *r**.
As for Zune, why not just stay with OVI, and improve that, Zune is just as big a pain in the *r**
why can I not see my folders in the phone storage?
My son wanted (yes past tense) a lumia 610, well I loaned him my 800 and only a few hours later he now wants a Samsung, which I will buy for him with pleasure.
Also noted that Nokia reported a major financial loss this year, so probably better to start to use other phones as Nokia is heading for the history books,
bye bye Nokia, you had my vote for the last 10 years but now it is over
Yeah I have to say Nokia Drive is a HUGE disappointment for me as well. (Especially since it was the number one reason why I stuck to Nokia in the first place) The loss of my favorites is really bad, but can at least be somewhat worked around because they are still in Nokia Maps. But sadly there are plenty of other bad things about it:
* no traffic info (even though in Nokia Maps they are available)
* no possibility to simply point to a destination and drive there
* keeps freezing on my Lumia 900
* very strange routing. Apparently it uses a very aggressive 'shortest path' algorithm that will make you leave and then enter the highway if there is an exit ramp during a right turn. (Happened to me twice in Munich)
* very often thinks that you are on the wrong side of the highway (bad GPS or bad street coordinates maybe?) And then keeps recalculating the route even if I am travelling in the right direction at well over 100MPH. There should be some logic built in that if I travel in the right direction the software should assume that I am on the right side of the highway.
Nokia ovi maps was a good software with some minor flaws which i had hoped would be solved in the wonderful 'nokia drive' software. Thus i bought a lumia800. Obviously Nokia Drive was only designed so Nokia could claim they have a free navigation software. I think, they hope that after 10 seconds every user will realize, that it is useless and buy 'Navigation Europe' (45€) (which is still not as good as ovi maps used to be.)
And i do not expect that any of the next updates will solve any of these issues, else nobody would buy the navigation europe software.
so as things are now i would recommend to buy any other phone with gps and buy some navi-software. 'free nokia navigation' is not an argument for anything.
