HTC just called Nokia’s raise and enabled free voice-guided navigation through its Locations app, available on its Windows Phone smartphones. This should help even the playing field between the HTC WP handsets and their Nokia Lumia rivals.

Even though Locations was not initially meant to compete with Nokia Drive, it will now allow you to download maps for offline use and navigate you through them. Turn-by-turn voice guidance for both walking and driving is supported as well, so all the basics are covered.
