How To Pin HERE Drive+ Locations To Your Windows Phone's Start Screen

If you drive pretty often to a certain destination, it might prove be quite convenient if you could pin your favourite places to your Start screen. That way, you wouldn't have to first search for the location in Here Drive +, so everything will be faster. Fortunately, Here Drive + for Windows Phone lets you do that and, in this article, we will show you how. Let's get started:

How To Pin Your Favourite Locations To The Start Screen

First, you need to add the location to Favourites. To do this, open Here Drive + and tap Set a destination form the main menu.

Type the address or the place in the text box and select one of the suggestions displayed.

Now, a map with your location will appear and below you'll see the distance to it. Swipe to the left or right to find locations with a similar name.

Then, instead of pressing drive to, press the star button from the right corner of the lower menu and the location will be saved to your Favourites.

To view your favourite places, go to the main menu and tap Favourites.

A list containing all your favourite places will be displayed. Press and hold the location you want to pin to your Start screen and tap pin to start from the pop-up menu.

Now, the location is pinned to your Start screen. If you tap the pinned location, the app will automatically find a route to your destination.

Now you either go ahead and follow the directions you're given by HERE Drive + or, if you want to customize your route, you can follow the steps we've shown in this article: How To Use HERE Drive+ To Reach A Destination Using Voice Guided Navigation.
