The Version of Nokia Drive we have all been waiting for is finally here, The Nokia Drive 3.0, which was announced way back during the MWC event in Barcelona, is finnally available for download on your Lumia device via the marketplace.
This new version brings with it some pretty amazing features, the most notable feature being the "my commute" feature which learns your daily commute and figures out new ways to get there faster should there be traffic or any other type of obstruction along your route, it works in real time, so it updates your route as you drive. This is pretty innovative and another reason why I think Nokia is #1 when it comes to location based services and good reason why Microsoft adopted Nokia Maps services to be all on its Windows Phones.
Nokia Drive with My Commute learns your driving preferences and uses information about the latest traffic conditions, this feature is only available in the US for now, but Nokia is working on collecting data from more countries and as they do it will become available in other regions.
My commute is not the only new feature coming with Nokia Drive 3.0.
There is now Automatic day/night mode for optimum visibility in the Nokia Drive, this feature automatically adjust your Nokia Lumia display for better viewing during day or night driving conditions, reducing potential distractions.
Also, you can now pin to start your favourite destinations for one-tap access to directions there. Yes, you can now pin routes to your start screen. one tap on the start screen and you are all set to drive to your destination. It doesn’t get easier than that.
So it is safe to say the update should be available to everyone over the weekend

It kinda sucks that HTC, Samsung, LG and other windows phone OEMs will have this on their devices too...
