Nokia updates Maps, Drive apps for Windows Phone

Navigation now works when phone is offline

Nokia has quietly updated its Maps and Drive apps for Windows Phone. The Drive turn-by-turn navigation app now enables users to cache map content for offline use. Users can also take advantage of an audio speed limit alert that provides notification when the vehicle speed exceeds the posted limit.

Other new features are said to include a "last destinations" option for quicker access to frequently visited waypoints, and estimated arrival time information presented alongside the traveling speed or route selection screen.

Maps 1.3 is a minor update, bringing localizations for additional countries located in Asia. Social networking integration is also new, while recent locations are displayed next to the favorites menu and users can place waypoint shortcuts on the Windows Phone homescreen.

Both apps are available in the Nokia Collection section of the Windows Phone Marketplace. via WPCentral (2)]
