Official figures show HERE Maps has been downloaded 2.5 million times from the Google Play Store
But an estimate of 1 million to 5 million is so wide, you could drive a truck through it. So on Tuesday, Nokia decided to cough up the real official number. The popular and highly regarded mapping service has been downloaded 2.5 million times from the Google Play Store. That figure doesn't take into account the 1 million downloads that took place prior to the app's listing on Google Play, when it was just in Beta. HERE Maps can be installed on any handset running Android 4.1 or higher.
According to Nokia, HERE Maps is the top app in the Google Play Store's Travel & Local section. With 37,477 ratings, the app has a 4.4 average score. Since many Android phone owners have been using Google Maps since the turn-by-turn directions launched with the Motorola DROID, it might be hard to get them interested in a third party mapping app except as a curiosity. One nice thing about HERE Maps is its ability to work while offline, a feature that might be able to save you some precious data.
