HERE app updates offline maps for Brazil, Barcelona and more locations

HERE app users can download a major update to its offline maps data, with "millions of changes" for locations around the world. Some of the bigger changes can be found for the country of Brazil and the city of Barcelona, Spain.

HERE's blog says:

In Brazil, we made it possible to download more granular maps, requiring less space on your phone, to aid both locals and tourists alike. Previously the country had been split into 5 territories but now you can download 32 smaller packages corresponding to local regions and states. So if you want to go to the state of Acre in northern Brazil, you no longer need to waste valuable phone space with the whole north region of the country.Also, maps for Barcelona and the surrounding area have just received a sweet update for the summer time. When you activate the transit view you can see commuter train lines (Rodalies de Barcelona) in addition to the previous coverage of Metro and FGC lines.

This update is the first since Nokia announced earlier this week it was selling off the HERE business to a consortium of German car companies (Audi, BMW and Daimler) for the price of €2.8 billion ($3 billion).
