Tried the Nokia one and just not very used to it.
What do you think the best navigation app is in WP8?
Thanks.

Well, if you prefer Waze over Here Drive (I don't), it's available...

if we talking about offline navigation's apps, here is from best to bad from my point of view:

1. Nokia Here Drive+ is excellent and much better than any pay navigation app... also can install global licence with proxy trick if not available for your phone (Lumia 520 for example) in navigation missing some features but in overall give most for nothing
2. Navigon is expensive but every few month have price discounts, and dont have my local language (not important for me but in android and iPhone my local language is available)....
3. Copilot not bad but in some region of my country routing is very bad and give terrible and longer routes...

Nokia Here Drive+ uses the same maps (navitel) and speed limit database as Garmin. This makes it superior, in my opinion, as those are the most accurate. Navigon uses the same databases as Garmin as well, but doesn't offer any significant benefit over Nokia's offering. In fact, Nokia's is better in my opinion. CoPilot has outdated maps, maps that are just plain wrong, and the speed limit database is very sparse.



To me, the only two options are Here Drive+ and Navigon... and only Navigon if you don't have a Nokia.



I'm a very picky GPS user, and only use offline GPS apps.
