Nokia gave us a hint of Nokia Drive 3.0′s commuter-friendly additions all the way back at Mobile World Congress in February. It’s been quite the wait, but the update is at last lurking in the Windows Phone Marketplace. Although developed at the same time as Google Now, the Drive update will feel like a small slice of Android 4.1 for Lumia owners through its predictive routing: it can learn when you leave for work and how driving habits will affect the trip, giving a heads-up about traffic jams before you turn the ignition. Windows Phone reasserts itself through the option of pinning favorite destinations as tiles on the home screen, and an automatic switch between day and night modes is just as new. Drive’s My Commute feature will initially work only in the US, but it should be available within the next day or two for any Lumia owner — so those being denied Windows Phone 8 still won’t have any justification for being late to the office.
