I had a Lumia 710 and used Nokia Drive for work everyday. I am a little disappointed that the 8x does not have turn by turn voice guided navigation but I have some hope for Nokia Drive to arrive in the future.
If it does not then I will just have to get used to the maps installed. There is no way I'm returning my phone just for that....too good looking imo.

Seriously. I have no need for Nokia maps, Bing maps, google turn by turn maps. I am a man with a wonderful sense of direction. All you need do, is find it once, save and proceed. Bing provides that. How is the sound?? Makes me feel a little good inside..

Well the only reason why I used it is because I work for a medical equipment company in southern New Mexico where everyone lives out on dirt roads away from the city. Nokia Drive definitely made my arrival time quicker and driving safer. But for most patients, I remember where they live at.

If I remember right, southern New Mexico, was like it was up North. I had 8 years in Taos. I've heard literally "Turn off the highway at the VW bus. After the arroyo, a mile down, turn right at the burnt tree. A mile later you'll see the water tank. The three legged dog will be in the drive right after. You turn in there. If you see any sheep, turn around."
I miss New Mexico so much....

Playing around, I deleted the VZ Navigator app and from my directions list, there's simply no button in the bottom menu to navigate now. I hope there's an API for map developers to add their app as the default navigation because I like having the navigate button in bing maps.
