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.

I'm one of the 2.5 Million who downloaded :) but i haven't tried going offline though. By the way, the video sounded like it was made only for Samsung Galaxy smartphones. :-/

Havent had that experience. Last year google on my note 3 wouldnt pull up a church we were going to for a wedding. It kept giving me out of state results. I did not know the name, just half of it and a poor spelling at that, and Here maps/drive pulled it right up. For google i had to do a search first then load maps to find it from the churches website. Everything else, both maps and here have worked the absolute same for me, and my experience.

My experience was quite the opposite. Apparently, Here maps can't even find all the stations in London. In public transit mode sometimes it even doesn't take into account that it's weekend and the bus/train services run on a different timetable. The street view is also not available for the entire city unlike Google Maps. If this is how they've done London it will only be worse in less developed places. The traffic info is also very false. Since Google has much wider adoption rate then Here has an advantage in giving more accurate traffic prediction. Their integration with Waze only makes it better.

To clarify, the 2.5 million figure is the cumulative number of downloads from here.com, Samsung Galaxy Apps and, most recently, Google Play. We mentioned the number yesterday in a post over at the HERE 360 blog.
