HERE Maps

HERE Maps is the solid mapping experience from Nokia, which was only available on the Lumia 2520 when it came to Windows Phone 8.1 tablets and PCs. We recently covered plans for the app to be pushed out to all hardware, ending the Lumia 2520 exclusivity. Nokia has today made the popular solution available for all consumers to download, no matter which Windows device you're using. 

As well as opening HERE Maps up to more consumers, Nokia has also included the following improvements in the universal update:

  • Speed – “The offline maps load as quickly as your computer can manage, of course, so it’s a lot faster than using a website for navigation. But there are also speed improvements to the online portions.”
  • Mouse + keyboard support for traditional PC users, in addition to the continued support of touch displays
  • Latest high-resolution satellite imagery

Consumers will now be able to enjoy a synchronised experience across multiple platforms and devices, including Lumia phones, tablets and PCs. Head on over to the Windows Store to download HERE Maps. If you're unable to download the app, give it some time for the store to roll out the update to your region.
