Poll results: Does Nokia's HERE maps app have the potential to overthrow Google Maps?
The software features voice-guided turn-by-turn navigation for vehicles and pedestrians, as well as public transport schedules, lane switching and traffic guidance. You can download detailed maps of various regions, countries (more than 200 are available for download as of now), and even continents. Said maps are kept on your device, and pave the way for faster access, route planning and rerouting, all while being offline. More than 100 of the maps in question allow you to make full use of turn-by-turn navigation, while 40 of them will provide you with traffic information. Previously such offline navigation apps did cost tens of dollars or euros, and we are now witnessing a rapid decline in their pricing, thanks to the HERE maps suite. Thus, HERE maps comes as a godsend when traveling abroad, as those data roaming charges can be pretty steep.
