    Now that the release of Windows 10 has broken many devices running Windows 8.1, the users of 8.1 will be forced to upgrade to Windows 10 if possible or get a new phone.

    Windows 8.1 had an AMAZING GPS app called HERE Drive. Also HERE Maps. They were all NOKIA. Nokia sold their devices division to Microsoft. It is likely that if your phone runs Windows and doesn't say NOKIA on it that it is still a Nokia. The recent Windows 10 release and breaking of Windows 8.1 devices caused another issue. After upgrading to Windows 10 from 8.1 the Nokia HERE Drive and HERE Maps were still installed, but not only no longer supporter but unable to be accessed! Instead when you open it you are told that WINDOWS MAPS is now what you have to use. I used HERE Drive. All of my favorites.....saved addresses that I visit and need to navigate to, they are gone. Windows Maps has an option that allows you to import all the Favorites and options from your HERE Drive/Maps. When you try to do it you are told that there is NOTHING to import. You've lost it all. Then after that you think that you can just reprogram new Favorites right? Wrong! WINDOWS MAPS offers NO FAVORITES. There is a star button labeled FAVORITES. You click it and there is a selection named "CAR". You can program an address into it, but it is still labeled "CAR". You can add a note to it, say "Home" for instance. That is your only allowed "Favorite". You cannot program any additional favorite addresses for quick navigation access. Windows Maps is MESSED.

    I knew there was no hope, so I had to set out and pick a new GPS app. I had heard about Waze and so many people said that it was better than Google Maps. There was so much support for Waze!

    The company that gives us Waze doesn't think there is a large enough number of Waze users that use Windows phones. They may be right. But what they haven't considered is that the very recent Windows 10 upgrade just RUINED the Windows/Nokia HERE Drive and Maps GPS system. Everyone that used to use HERE Drive or HERE Maps is now looking for a new navigation provider for their phone. Waze can offer that! Let Waze know that there is Windows phone user support for it and that there are orphaned GPS users wanting to try something new. Waze can capitalize on this!!!!
