Nokia’s Drive+, Nokia’s exclusive offline SatNav navigation app on Windows Phone has had its Beta version updated.
The new update enables more efficient battery use when the app runs in the background plus a few other improvements. The updated app will turn off the GPS receiver when you send it to background to save battery (except in the cases when you are in a guidance mode, of course).
Nokia is also improving its free navigation offering by adding a ‘Back to my position’ function while exploring the map, and a distance measurement from your current position to any place you happen to be looking at.
