Nokia HERE gives you superpowers in new video ads
HERE will be earning all sorts of licensing fees from the likes of Microsoft and numerous other industrial applications that use the services available through the platform. Those initiatives do not touch us, but if you are a Windows Phone user, you know how good HERE Maps, Drive, Transit, MyCommute (aka Transit) and LiveSight (City Lens) really are.
Nokia is getting the ball rolling in what we hope will be a continuous visibility campaign showing off the HERE branded services. Kicking off that initiative is a super-no-so-secret-agent-and-HERE-employee named Alex Osaki. Clearly a James Bond wanna-be, but with the “Get Smart” theme music in the background, he is more like Maxwell Smart. In this case though, he is regrettably lacking an Agent 99 sidekick, yet thankfully, instead of a shoe phone, he is sporting a Nokia Lumia.
Check out the videos below and to their credit, the third one ends with a bang (of sorts).

Yep, nothing makes me want to jump onboard the cool-train like a fedora wearing nerd talking about superpowers.

I alway having problem with Google navigation not showing accurate position, but on my n8 it's 100% accurate with offline. Go Nokia.

Irrelevant reply since I was mocking the "commercial", not the already highly praised HERE trademark.

though google map is great, here maps should be present in android as another option. i like its offline facilities of searching.,

HERE is excellent. But will be outstanding on the Nokia Lumia 1520 :)
I have already ordered my scratch proof cover for it :)http://www.sunsky-online.com/product/default!vie

Agreed mate! HERE on my Lumia 920 puts any decent GPS to shame. My girlfriend also uses it on her iPhone 5 and tells me it's better than Apple and Google Maps.
