Nokia announces HERE Auto with app for smartphones

0. phoneArena 30 Aug 2013, 07:19 posted on

Thursday evening, Finnish OEM Nokia posted a cryptic message hinting at an announcement for Friday morning; there was some thought that the announcement would be related to cars since the message concluded with Nokia wishing everyone a safe drive home. Sure enough, on Friday morning Nokia introduced a series of applications that offer more than just navigation for cars...

Google is a search engine company who also produce Android and provide services like gmail.google drive,google plus,youtube,google maps etc
and one of the great company who gave us nice hardware in affordable price tag like nexus 4,7 etc
Google also is a very innovative company and keep improving their products, for example Android itself.

and yeah... Go Nokia........

Nifty except for the fact that Here Drive still isn't what it needs to be. Driving directions are still off here in NJ. My Gamin still gives me the better route 9/10 times (the one I would rather take). Plus at least my Garmin tells me what side of the road my destination is on.

I'm slightly concerned about this traffic feature that "keeps us out of congested areas". The last place I want to be driving through is the hood because Here Maps thinks its less congested, or be diverted off the route that I know is going to be better despite the fact that traffic is slow there.Mapping is all about trust. I can trust that Here will tell me when to turn at the proper time, but I still can't trust its route choices or that it knows where I am (it will always track the route rather than actually tracking your position. I find this all the time when I purposely divert off the route and it doesn't stick with me.

In my country I think this is the best navigation solution.I hardly use google maps on my optimus 4x.This is so inaccurate.In that field my lumia 920 here maps works better than anything!

That is very strange since Garmin itself is powered by Nokia's data. How can Garmin be more accurate?

Exactly! If it uses TeleNav's info (which Garmin does) it's using Nokia's info.

Don'tHateOnS60: what device are you using HERE on? Both my Lumia 900 and 925 give me complete directions and the side of the street, and work a lot faster than my parents-on-law's Garmin.

Lumia 920 is what I'm using. Coming up from South River NJ to my home, it recommended me to take the NJ Turnpike which I didn't want to take. My Garmin (its a 5" model bought 2 years ago) recommended roads cutting through New Brunswick taking me north to US 22, which was a better route.

Clearly they are not using the same info to figure out what route to take.

My 920 has never ever given me which side of the street my destination is on either, but it does reroute a lot faster than the Garmin for obvious reasons.

It's not about accurate, it just gave me the more preferred route without me having to drive off route and force it to do that. As I stated in the comment below, coming from central NJ up north the Lumia wanted me to take the NJ Turnpike which I wanted to avoid due to tolls. My Garmin, which never had toll roads turned off pointed me in a route that was more direct and preferred.

that statement shows that apple did it first instead of nokia- the navigation part.

not literally saying the exact term "i did not say nokia copied apple" (coz he saying apple is first to concept/do the maps stuff)
