    Very good 😊

    No landscape, gets stuck recalculating route screen, battery use is ok, best used on charge though. Road name pronunciation is poor and could be misleading. Runs better on android, hasn't been updated for a long long time. Seems abandoned. Shame, good idea but needs sorting out to be truly great. Here Drive seems to be the better option.

    Nice but still poor

    Would be 5 stars, with not being able to rotate to landscape view its only 4 stars

    Doesn't work for my lumia930 📱. It doesn't show me the map. Have 4G signal and it say "searching for network"

    I drive a lot and I've tried a number of navigation apps (free and paid), this one is usually my go to navigation app. I use it daily for my commute to work and it nearly always manages to find me the fastest way there. I like the interface, I know lack of landscape orientation makes this unpopular but it's not a big deal for me. The turn-by-turn directions are excellent, clear and well timed but it does struggle to announce some street names correctly! I like that it collects information whilst driving as I don't like to interact with the app whilst driving. This is the thing I dislike most about this app. It craves attention and almost makes your driving into a bit of a video game. Everything you report earns you points. Every time someone likes your report you get points. Collect enough points and you level up. The app is also pretty basic compared to competitors - no speed limits/active lane assist etc that you get in more premium products. But for a free nav app it's really good.

    Better than android but no landscape mode. Nokia drive is terrible. Rerouting is bad, when you hit traffic you're stuck for options other than to view jams not avoid them

    Since you've (Google) stopped development of the WP version, wouldn't the honest thing be to pull the app from the store? This version is lacking in all areas.

    Connect to Facebook link doesn't do anything (Lumia 1520 with Dev preview) but other than that I have no problems.

    It tells me the way and help me to reach to my destination.. What else I want .. No need for landscape . It shows us the routes all v need this. V simple and quick in calculating the routes. 5 stars :)
