Nokia has updated Nokia Drive and launched a new Nokia Reading app for its Windows Phone handsets. The new Nokia Drive app supports full offline routing, as well as the ability to reactivate routes from saved destinations. Nokia Reading reformats webpages and news to suit the Windows Phone screen.

Nokia Drive also gets live traffic integration, allowing you to see what delays may be ahead of you. A deal between Nokia and Groupon puts the daily deals service into Nokia Maps, across Windows Phone and Nokia Belle devices, meanwhile.

As for Nokia Reading, that adds a new hub pulling in news and other information. There's a pared down easy reading view, along with the ability to show breaking news on a homescreen Live Tile.

Both will be preloaded on Nokia Windows Phone devices, at no charge and with no ongoing subscription fee.
