Nokia HERE for Android downloaded more than 1 million times from Google Play

As you probably know, HERE is one of the businesses that Nokia kept for itself after selling its Devices and Services unit to Microsoft. The HERE app provides maps and turn-by-turn navigation, its highlight being the fact that it can be used offline (you can save interactive maps for over 100 countries).
Have you tried Nokia HERE for Android? If not, it can be downloaded at the first source link below. If yes, what do you think about it thus far?

HERE Maps is immensely useful in areas with bad signal coverage. Too bad Google Maps doesn't have an an offline feature...

Agreed. Here maps are better than Google maps (in offline mode).

Google Maps does have an offline option, but it's limited in area, and only lasts for a certain time (30 days? I forget). There's other apps that offer full regions, but they cost. I haven't tried Nokia Now. I might, even though I haven't left Tucson in years.

You know out there is OpenStreetMaps.org and it is used by Maps.Me. And you can navigate offline too. I used when I was traveling abroad without data connected and it is pretty good. Transportation ia in. Also I used NokiaHere as a backup for offline navigation. But when I'm online (wi-fi hotspot abroad) Google Maps is the king. Better to use all the services you have for particular situation.

Too bad it doesn't have satellite view offline, that would kill Google Maps.

I used Here Maps on a recent flight from Miami to Buffalo and since I was on the window seat, I had my 1520's GPS tracking the flight. It was cool to see the Maryland coast come across my screen just as were about to fly over it. Here Drive+ is even better especially with speed limits being shown and speed trap locations.
