Did Nokia fixed their lousy routing algorithm by now?
Nokia has just announced that one of the things it is going to do with its newly acquired money mountain is to invest $100m of it (€71.7m, £58.9m) in connected cars. This is a bit of a change of heart for the Finnish firm, which six years ago sold its automotive business to the German VC Novero. But these are different times …
I only just found out that the current Lumias don't do re-routing according to traffic conditions, so my N8 has been pulled out of the drawer; so much for convergence. Maybe Nokia should spend some of their billions on bringing Here Drive back up to the standard it was several years ago on Symbian. With Google now pushing towards offline maps, Nokia are in severe danger of being left behind in mapping, just as they were with smartphones. With mapping gone, there won't be much left and they'll have to go back to selling wellies.
