The location based services offered by Nokia have their own use cases that make your user experience easier and more delightful. Thus the idea behind the split of Nokia Drive and Nokia Maps in the phone menu is giving you instant access to our key location based services. In the previous release all the services were presented on the main menu under one Nokia Maps icon. Now you can open the different location based services like Maps or Drive with just a tap on your home screen.
We want to offer you solutions for real life use cases. Nokia Drive is specifically designed for in car usage, providing traffic information and a simplified user interface. Nokia Maps, on the other hand, is specifically designed to learn more about the area around you, with places discovery, walking routes and public transportation.
