    API for Nokia Drive for WP7?

    Is there a way for a WP7 app to send data to and initiate Nokia Drive -- like a "Task"?
    Or, can Nokia Drive read in a GPX file (standard GPS waypoint/route/track XML file)?
    Specifically, my app maintains a route of waypoints. Is it possible to send a set of waypoints to Nokia Drive which then would provide the voice turn-by-turn navigation?
    Regards,
    Rick

    As far as I know there is no way to do what you are looking for with Nokia Drive. Perhaps there is with Nokia Maps or Bing Maps you can open the maps on a specific location, but I don't see a way to start the turn by turn navigation in that case also.

    Is there a way to pose this question to the Nokia-Drive developers or is there a Drive support forum/web site?

    No real way to contact them, no special support forums, I'm not even certain whether there would be any API for it planned.

    On wp7 you cannot initiate any "task" implemented by 3rd party application. But maybe you use "Bing Map Directions Task" for your scenario.

    However, you cannot set your route.

    that sounds cool, actually haven't got time to check that, but would that be something different than Routing ? (basically does it really give you turn by turn navigation, and automated one as well )

    for routing you could use the APIs as well, as shown in routing examples: http://www.developer.nokia.com/Commu..._Windows_phone

    Hi, this is not a supported scenario for Windows Phone. We're looking into what we can do there in the future.

    Well, I think I see what you mean -- not a direct way to interact between apps. However, one possibility is for Drive to import GPX files from skydrive. My app exports GPX files to skydrive. Drive could use the waypoints from the GPX for turn by turn navigation, couldn't it?
