    This is probably the best navigation app on windows phone. It is very accurate and even forewarns you about incidents on the road you are on or about to go on. I don't get why some people are giving less favourable feedback. Please appreciate the effort by the coder. I use Lumia 830 - UK.

    How do you get past the terms and conditions page. Unusable due to this so uninstalling. Very poor app. Now crashes on start up.

    I used this all the time on my old win6 phone. Kinda forgot all about this app. I find this takes better routes than all the others. Life saver for van drivers.So cool that it's here for win8 now. Always has been a battery drainer. Needs landscape mode.

    Great on my Lumia 930. I like the concept of crowd sourcing the data

    This app looked good but it doesn't even start up when I go on to it. Lumia 735. :(

    Rubbish

    Runs like a dog even on a flagship Lumia model, whilst also obliterating the battery. So much worse than the iOS version it's not worth bothering to explain all the reasons. Here Drive+ p****s all over this just stick with that instead.
