HERE fights off technical issues to return apps to the Windows Store

You may recall the HERE suite of apps disappearing from the Windows Store back in October, which was reportedly caused by a technical issue. This problem continued until the start of 2016, but now we've been made aware of their return. If you're a die-hard HERE fan, the batch of apps are once again available on the Windows Store.

While we're intrigued to learn more about the technical issues the HERE team faced with its Windows Store offerings, we're glad the suite is once again available for download. Hit the links below to download each HERE app:

  • The windows 10 maps app is soooo much better! I never thought I'd ever say that!
  • I would agree except that the traffic (at least for my area (greater Toronto area) is not working properly. Until that gets fixed, HERE Drive is a welcome app on my phone
  • HERE Drive is miles better for voice navigation in the UK. W10 stock app is woeful with roundabouts. Also landscape view is much clearer.
  • Maps, in UK on 10 is shocking. Mine won't even give me motorway routes. The view is horrendous too. Also the map angle is terrible. Here Drive is a very welcome return!
  • I do about 2000+ miles with work a month and use Maps all the time.
  • Hmm. I used it getting around Milton Keynes recently and it worked fine with the many consecutive
    roundabouts!
  • Now this does say a lot for the app! :-D I always got lost in the round about when I used to frequent Milton Keynes
  • In the Netherlands traffic data is ok (indication on the map), only in the Maps app you can not turn on or off the traffic while getting directions, which is very anoying. Also Maps does not take delays into account in the ETA as far as I can tell, while Here did integrate that. Also a slightly larger font size would help. Landscape orientation of Maps is terrible on my 950XL, the top panel takes up so much space of the screen that the actual map view becomes useless. They could shove that info into a corner. Otherwise I am a very happy user of Maps.      
  • That's strange, I'm in the GTA as well and the traffic in the Windows 10 maps app works well for me. It even has the traffic cameras and accident updates.
  • Same here, works pretty good for me
  • Interesting... what highways do you see traffic reports for? I travel from south Mississauga to Markham on a daily basis. Multiple routes to go. 401 & 407 always show "traffic not available". QEW/404 show "light traffic" with no colour coding on the route. Colour coding doesn't show on the routes (minus a 10 min span where it appeared briefly during the drive)
  • I have never noticed any traffic avoidance on any app in Windows except Navigon and Waze. I prefer HERE and the Windows 10 GPS, but traffic does not seem to factor in either one.
  • I couldn't agree more. In Toronto, Windows Maps "works", but so did my 5 year old Garmin before there was proper traffic guidance/ETAs and other options on my phone (for free to me). Now, if we could only get the default voice navigation option back, I'd be ecstatic. Welcome back, HERE!
  • It has always worked for me.
  • I'm also in the GTA and use Traffic (has an ugly green icon with a car on it).....it is by far the most accurate above the built in maps traffic, here's traffic and inrixs traffic. Try it out
  • I was mostly waiting for Transit to make a comeback.
  • Yes! Transit is the best one out there! WXms' maps UI isn't bad, but it basically gives me just 5 different versions of the extract same route. Just leaving 1 min earlier/later, getting on on next stop etc
  • Me as well. MS jinkst the implementation in their maps app as there are maaaany features missing. Happy to have Here transit Back
  • HERE Transit is legit. Unparalleled. One of the few apps I actually would call a "must have."
  • I also think so...it was the guide for me in NYC tour alone ....I didn't miss anything with it. Missed it so much in Nov while visiting Boston. It's must have app and its being separate , not like in regular map as in Wp10 or Gmap, really clean and useful...
  • In k-w both it and grt app can be useless sometimes as their running the same developer access that for some reason decides its going to bring up the spring/summer schedule in fall/winter & the other way around sending me ultimately to the sportsworld station about 30mins. out of my way. At least now the website is running bing(the app I assume there still working on getting it converted since its still gmaps slow as ****)
  • I don't agree... but Here maps still not compatible with my 950 XL!   
  • What's the error ?
  • Says not available
  • Same here. HERE!
  • You need to go through your apps library in the store to find the right ones. Searching through the store says not available, when I went through my Apps Library, it installed HERE Maps and Drive+
  • Thank you sir! I was finally able to install it by this method!
  • My AT&T 950 has it listed in APPs that don't work on it. When it does come up the information says European version??? This website sure sucks at times. It's taken 3 minutes to type these two sentences. No place else except Windows Central does this happen at. Still can't enter a return to end with signature... MG            
  • I'm having that same problem. I was only able to install HERE Drive+
  • Only able to install HERE Maps. The rest say incompatible for the 950 XL
  • I am able to install only Drive+ on my 950.
  • I'm not able to install Drive+, but Maps is ok.  
  • Installed Here Maps and Here Drive + on my 950XL. Originally says not available for device, but if you search on store and display all, a 2nd option was given for both, which then installed without problem. However, City Lens does not show in the store, and the link above doesn't have a download option.
  • Try going through your "My Library" in the store to find the right ones. Searching through the store says not available, when I went through "My Library", it installed HERE Maps and Drive+
  • Same thing here, no Drive + for my 950 XL.
  • Make sure you are downloading the correct version. Apparently there are two versions of each app. http://www.windowscentral.com/here-maps-drive-windows-10-mobile
  • Same for transit. You have to go to your app library and install from there. After that it works just fine. Got the same error message for my 950XL.
  • Thanks for this tip! ☺
  • Seems they linked the wrong app on this page. Just look at the apps page for HERE Europe b.v. and select the other one
  • Thanks for the tip. Worked for me
  • Works fine on my 950XL this morning. - Here Drive, Here Maps, Here Transit. all ok. All updated maps and useabble
  • It's not compatible with my 1520...
  • there are two versions of the same app.the new one will be compatible .check in the app list of the here maps developer.
  • I saw two versions when I searched the store too... One set I owned and the other set is marked as free.... I just installed the Owned ones no problem,
  • Total bs that it doesn't on work on the 950xl's!
  • Take a deep breath, relax and check the store again. You may notice duplicates of some of the apps. Try all duplicates before giving up hope. If you already tried this without luck, then be sure to get out the pitchfork.
  • Make sure you are downloading the correct version. Apparently there are two versions of each app. http://www.windowscentral.com/here-maps-drive-windows-10-mobile
  • Why is better ? In Romania it can`t find adresses that i can find on Here, and also there is no Voice for Romania, it`s only in english ... on Here i can choose the voice. So what exactly is better on the Win 10 maps ?
  • Everything. For people that don't live where you live.
  • Which are arround 5% of the world population ;)
  • You're underestimating the number of countries by only thinking of the US.
  • I believe both use the same here mapping data, and traffic in ro, maybe from google. Otherwise, for me Here Drive has a more intuitive UX, while native maps has it's own features unmatched by here (single app for maps and driving, tap to resume navigation notification, reroute on demand, set destination via GPS coordinates when address is not available)
  • I would delete maps app anytime, from now. Just this pessky ms do not let me. Is good my ass. It is unable to think for it self
  • I agree. The HERE maps will route me 7 hours out of my way too often. I don't get what everybody sees in them.
  • My HERE drive used to be wonky with directions but seems to have gotten better recently.
  • There is two versions 512mb which is not compatible with 950xl and normal which is.
  • I hate the voice navigation capabilities on the stock app. Here allows you to choose language, male/female and UK/US English accent which the stock app does not. The voice of also more natural in the here apps.
  • I've moved on to using Waze which provides better updated routes, voices and alerts. The built in maps and navigation in winmo10 just absolutely blows.
  • Here transit was awesome in Denver. Need it badly for bus /train schedules. Map app not the same.
  • Does HERE finnaly tell you if your destination is on the right or left?  Like HERTZ neverlost even did in 2005 ?
  • Cant download on Lumia 950XL
  • Try Drive+. That was the only one that worked for me. Perhaps it is still propagating through the store's servers
  • Same
  • Try https://www.windowscentral.com/e?link=https2F%2Fclick.linksynergy.co... for maps, worked on my 950 5mins ago
  • Search for Here Drive and you should see two versions.
  • Both are not available for my device
  • Happy days :)
  • Says not compatible with my device (950)
  • I just downloaded it to my 950.
  • Download from your app library
  • Thanks I'll give that a try
  • There's six apps just click publisher to download it
  • It let me download maps but not drive + on my 950 XL. If you look at the app it says HERE Europe.
  • Not compatible with my New Lumia 950XL!!!?? C'Mon!!!
  • You are trying to download 512mb version of here drive look for the other
  • The store says not compatible with your device. I have a Lumia 950...
  • This is so embarrassing. If the here apps, initially built for Windows phone, has problems with w10. How much problems will other services have on w10?
  • What is much more embarrassing is that even Microsoft's own apps have problems with Windows phone, though they work perfectly fine with iOS and Android.
  • It still saying NO LONGER AVAILABLE
  • As others have mentioned, search the app store for HERE and display all results. You should see two sets of apps.
  • Not compatible for 950xl
  • I am getting the not compatible with this device. Nokia 1520. Windows 10 mobile. I do hope they fix this...
  • HERE is bullshit.
  • Why do you say that? What are your reasons?
  • I wish they would make the app Universal, i have an Asus Transformer T100TAF and i would like to use Here maps instead of Windows 10 maps on it.
  • Its showing on my 950XL. When I search in store I get two returns for here drive. One that isn't compatible and the other works.
  • Why would those with a 950 want to use Here when the Maps app in Windows 10 is based on the same technology? What is the advantage of Here?
  • Habit I suppose.
  • The advantage is that Here Drive lets you download voice language in nav mode. For that, I use Here Maps just because when I hit "Start nav", it asks me which app to use = Here Drive; Maps app doesn't. Maps app isn't suited for navigation, here drive is far more better in any aspect. Yes, I use the navigation once in a while and when I do, I want it to work properly, in my native language. Only Here can to that. Here and other paid services. And, yes, Maps wouldn't existed without Here Maps, which is one of the greatest nav maps world wide(recently bought by german car makers, from Nokia).
  • Based on same map data, technology is different
  • Here can choose what ever navigation apps you have. Normally I'm using Waze to check traffics. Windows maps app button too small need microscope to access.
  • THIS! The problem with Windows 10 Maps app is it wasn't designed for driving usability as Here Drive. Those buttons are tiny even Microphone button is non-existent for voice nav, well yeah we can use Cortana but what about for those who doesn't have? Not to mention Maps app is quite buggy that sometimes I got the UI glitch, talk about reliability which it seems I won't trust the W10M Maps app anytime soon.
  • Same map tech sure but the UI of Here apps are way more polished and for Here Drive which is really designed for driving usability with those big text + buttons and simpler interaction with same features. They worked pretty well compared to W10M Maps in my experience. The default Map is glitchy and tends to crash sometimes, the annoyance I don't want to deal with while driving or even for quick lookup on maps. The performance is also slight slower in terms of rendering the maps too in default Maps app while Here apps was fine. W10M Maps also won't work well or always when searching things offline, something Here can always do even offline IIRC. Offline capabilities of Here Maps and Drive works better. In short they have similar backend but Here got more polished and reliable client-side of things. W10M is still a long way in terms of usability and stability, but it's gaining new nice features though which I like. Its a shame that it tends to crash and unreliable at times.
  • +1 on that! MS maps still looks HERE ported badly onto WP10.
  • Maps is terrible for navigating in UK, told me to u turn on same road twice, it was a straight road for 12 miles
  • Here drive and maps installed successfully (950xl insider)
  • One thing bothers me. Default Maps app and Here Drive use the same offline maps(downloaded).
    Here Map is easily able to search almost all the locations(sometimes not the exact place, but it shows the nearest place atleast). But the Maps app is not able to find few of the same locations. 
    Apart from that Maps app is better in all aspects.
  • Thankfully I haven't had that problem, but Maps is definitely better. Have you submitted that issue in the feedback section?
  • It is wierd! Here in Denmark the Win10 maps app is crap at finding locations and recognizing adresses, but the HERE maps can find them without breaking a sweat. And since they use the same map data, i suspect that the maps app just isnt optimized for POI or anything else, outside the "major" countries... one could even say outside of cortana "coverage"! And i hate that, because the Maps app is so much better and integrated! :(
  • Not just 950/950xl but all phone i guess. I have those three but in the store, only here drive+ can open, the rest of the two says not compatible on my device (L830)
  • Tap on HERE Europe BV and you'll see the apps that will work on your devices. I had the same issue on my 950XL until I did that
  • Thank you SO MUCH for clearly explaining how you were able to get the apps on the 950XL.  I read through I don't know how many posts in this thread to find that bit of information. I guess I should not be surprised  after so many years in IT.  It's not unusual on a tech enthusiast forum that the pertinent information not be presented in an intuitive way.  Anyway, back to HERE Maps.  Lots of people mentioned that the MS equivalent relies on HERE for its underlying technology.  That is true.  The difference is in the user interface, as fewer people have noted.  The use of display real estate, the size of the buttons (a safety issue really), the choice of voices, and especially the commuter function are what set HERE apart from the others for me.  I am overjoyed to have it back.  I find WAZE by the way  annoying, mostly because I can't get it to switch to landscape mode.
  • True, the UI is a lot nicer in HERE apps than the stock Maps app.  Other than the lower quality UI, I like the stock Maps app more. Having maps and driving in one app is nice too. No longer do I have 2 GPS apps running and draining my battery. I eventually had the bright idea to close HERE Maps after Drive+ started up. Drive+ took forever to find directions if it ever did, so I felt like I had to use HERE Maps to get reliable directions. Hopefully the stock W10m Maps app will rip off the Here app style in a future update. Alternate routes are nice too.
  • There are two versions on the store for each app.The one works, the other doesn't.I installed all of them on my 950XL
  • Works fine on my 950.
  • HERE Fights off technical issues and returns to the store.......with CONTINUED Technical issues...HERE Today....gone tomorrow?
  • Here City Lens says N/A.  All the others were installed without a problem.
  • What's REALLY embarrassing is that HERE on iOS and Android is better than Apple Maps and Google Maps for in car GPS, and very good for regular maps (no street view for Android users would be a reason to stay with Google if not driving). HERE also has everything on iOS and Android in the one app, switching laying depending on function very nicely. On Windows.... not touched since the day Microsoft talked of buying Nokia. Pathetic! Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Agreed. I like the Windows 10 maps app more then HERE Maps. The overall experience is better, and having multiple routes to pick from is nice. I doubt the HERE apps will get new features. It's a shame
  • I was the same way but went back to HERE a month or so ago and they have improved greatly (at least for my area). It sounds like MS maps is good for some areas while HERE rules in others. So nice that we now have both to choose from for free. Thanks MS and HERE!
  • The android here app is superb. They seem to have stopped the windows version development except for minor fixes.
  • Not compatible with my device + City Lens allegedly no longer available. L925 Insider build .36.
  • Tap on HERE Europe BV and you'll see the apps you'll be able to install. It worked for me.
  • Indeed working. Many thanks!
  • I really missed those apps! I'm very happy they're back on the store!
  • We don't know what the issues are except that "something happened".
  • Exactly. I actually clicked on the article thinking that perhaps we'd finally get an explanation of that. I suppose it will never happen.
  • Here is better than WP maps in finding street address.
  • Not where I live. Here always is off by a block or two on the address, or showing the address next door or down the road. I've only managed to find a handful of addresses it can actually find correctly, but 90% are off. Microsoft Maps has pinpointed the same addresses accurately using the same maps database. I suppose it depends on where you live. I'm finding MS Maps superier in every way at this point, including finding my car after parking someplace new. 
  • Good for you
  • Anyone cant download them just ebter the here page ( the app maker ) you will find two apps of the same name one doesnt work and the other will be installed properly
  • For our lucky 950 folks... And anyone else.... It you get "Not compatible with this device" either search your Library or search HERE Europe B.V. You will see double (yay store!) 3 will work, 3 will not.
    Hint: If you have any marked "owned" them's the ones.
  • I had only ever used Google Maps, so when I switched to WP from Android, I was sad about losing Google Maps. I was surprised that I actually prefer Here over Google Maps! Here has never gotten me lost, when Google maps did. Even my mother, who has a Galaxy Note 4, has started using Here Drive+ on her Android because she, agrees that it's much better than Android!
  • I'm really happy about this I was waiting for the return just downloaded on my 550 and it's working great .
  • I have a stupid question. I always used Android, and am still fairly new to WP 8.1, when I first got my 1520, it came with Here Maps and Here Drive+ preinstalled. But it also had an app simply called "Maps". What app is that? Is it like Bing Maps or something? Is it worth using? Thank you for any answers!
  • Yes that is Bing maps. I didn't like it when I was using WP8.1, but I like the W10 Bing maps. It's personal preference. I'd say use HERE Maps until you can upgrade to 10, but there is nothing wrong with trying both and seeing what you like. Definitely download offline maps. Things will load faster and not use your data.
  • Thanks, man! Yeah I have the offline maps for Here, but if it is also there for Bing, I'll download those too! Luckily I have unlimited 4G data from T-Mobile. I hope the Windows 10 update hits my Lumia 1520 soon! Yeah I'll have to see which one I like. I mean, I don't use any Google product anymore except YouTube. I just recently stopped using Google Search, and only using Bing. I started with using Bing because of Cortana on my phone, then I finally went and put it as my default search engine on my PC. Google lost a good customer in me, because of their ****** policies in running Android, and Microsoft has gained a devout fan aha xD.
  • HERE Maps and Bing Maps use the same offline maps. No need to download again.
  • I found the fix for people that can't download the apps. Open an app from one of the links, tap on HERE Europe BV, and you'll see two of each app. If you had a Lumia before, then you should see three apps that say you own them. Tap on those and you'll be able to install them. I'm guessing there are a Lumia and an everyone else version like there was for WP8.1.
  • Not available for Lumia 950 At&t
  • It is. Tap on HERE Europe BV in the app listing and you'll see 6 apps (double of each app). If you had a Lumia previously, then download the ones that say Owned. If not, then try one app or the other until one downloads. It worked on my 950 XL.
  • UK Still not compatible Lumia 640 xl w10m (latest build)
  • They must still have issues presenting the Link to the app on their homepage though: https://maps.here.com/ - but I stopped caring when windows maps suggested me alternative routes 
  • Here Maps is discontinued for Windows 10.
  • Tap on HERE Europe BV in the app listing and you'll see 6 apps (double of each app). If you had a Lumia previously, then download the ones that say Owned. If not, then try one app or the other until one downloads. It worked on my 950 XL.
  • Finally!!!!!
    Wellcome back!! :]
  • Sygic for me. HERE isn't detail. But sygic not free.. Oh...
  • @windows central: You put the link for wp81 Version. There are also the apps for lumia 950 wp10 version. Same name. Only city lens is only for wp81
  • I was able to get all three on my lumia 950 xl by searching for Here Maps - clicking on the result and if it said it wasn't compatible to click on the the developer name to find all other apps - showed the ones I owned and was able to install them.... here are the links Here Maps: https://www.microsoft.com/store/apps/9wzdncrfhw6b Here Drive: https://www.microsoft.com/store/apps/9wzdncrfhw6c Here Transit: https://www.microsoft.com/store/apps/9wzdncrfhw68
  • Unfortunately HERE Drive etc. Are not available here in Denmark on my Lumia 950XL. Does anybody know the reason for this?
  • Check install instructions on this page
  • DENMARK Maps loaded fine on my 950XL in UK
  • Tap on HERE Europe BV in the app listing and you'll see 6 apps (double of each app). If you had a Lumia previously, then download the ones that say Owned. If not, then try one app or the other until one downloads. It worked on my 950 XL.
  • All I need is just the street side traffic view in my city which is there just in US. I just need that. Rest everything is enough for me .
  • Despite trying to expand into iOS and Android, HERE's biggest success has been on Windows.
  • Only because they were preloaded on Nokia phones and were better then the stock apps. The Windows 10 maps app is a lot better. I downloaded the HERE apps, but I will probably continue to use the Maps app as my default.
  • Not compatible with my device. Except here drive
  • Read above on how to install - works on my 950XL and on my Wife's 950 no problems (just updated all our Maps too.. You must read how folk have done it as above
  • Here are apps so outdated, would never go back to that crap.
  • In what way, do you think the HERE apps are outdated?
  • I agree. The stock Maps app is much better in W10 than it was in WP8.1. I still downloaded the apps just because I can. I doubt I'll use them. Having alternate routes is really nice. Hopefully the W10 mobile MAps app will get an interface refresh. It's definitely not the best designed map app.
  • A big YAY! Working smoothly on the 950! Missed the old HERE layout.
  • Garmin charged us $40 for StreetPilot and pulled their app. Sick of this crap.
  • Contact then to get a refund. Most reputable companies will honor that if they leave a platform.
  • The Garmin company is not related to the HERE company. HERE was formerly named Navteq and was based in Chicago, Illinois.
  • Finally! Honestly, I like Maps much more than Here, except when it comes to navigation. I like having the navigation on even if im just driving around town and don't have a specific address typed in. Maps inexplicably doesn't have a driving mode unless you give it a destination. Too much of the screen is taken up by the next turn info on Maps too. Tends to make it difficult to observe the navigation..
    On a side note, I really hope Microsoft will soon release an updated wireless car charger/mount that will work with the 950xl. It was a real bummer to find my cr-200 doesn't work with it.
  • There are two version in store...first is not compatible with 950xl..found the second by clicking on developer name so they are real.
  • Just tried to install these apps on my L1520 on.63 . It continues to say not available or not compatible with my device
  • Tap on HERE Europe BV in the app listing and you'll see 6 apps (double of each app). If you had a Lumia previously, then download the ones that say Owned. If not, then try one app or the other until one downloads. It worked on my 950 XL.
  • I prefer Navigon for its UX (user experience) while driving. It uses the offline downloaded maps from HERE and adds information and features such as traffic and lane guidance. I use HERE Maps when not driving for its arial views and its interior maps, such as for Mall of America in Bloomington MN (suburb of Minneapolis and St. Paul Minnesota).
  • Still no city lens.
  • "this so is not compatible with this device" .. Lumia 950... really!...
  • Read other posts for resolution
  • Tap on HERE Europe BV in the app listing and you'll see 6 apps (double of each app). If you had a Lumia previously, then download the ones that say Owned. Otherwise try one app or the other until one downloads. It worked on my 950 XL.
  • It says not compatible with my device. I have Lumia 950XL.

  • Good news. Now we have Here and Windows 10 maps apps!. Maps galore. Hooray! I only wish that microsoft would support landscape support for the start screen for windows 10 mobile now. It's so annoying if you have navigation in landscape orientation and you have to turn the phone around if you want to navigate to a different app while driving. I needed this feature in windows phone 7, I still need this feature in windows phone 8, and I still have high expectations tol get it for windows 10 mobile.
  • As long as they give us a settings option to enable/disable the start scren rotation I'd like to have that too. I wouldn't need to have that for everyday use though, but while driving it would help for when the Spotify app crashes. That happens too often.
  • Autorotate feature for the startscreen for windows 10 for pc and tablets is already a standard core feature via the action center. Windows 10 mobile just needs to be streamlined with the pc/tablet core builds. I presume it shouldn't be too difficult to do that and they' re already tweaking with onecore at this point in time. I would think adding landscape support with autorotate on/off in the windows 10 mobile quicksettings wouldn't be that big a leap to do now.
  • The store shows 3 here drive apps. Only 1 is working, if they wanted they could solve the problem really fast, we have seen problems like this in the past and the fix came ok 4-5 days max

  • Change Macedonia to F.Y.R.O.M and I will download it again.
  • Doesn't Greece have actual problems, for you to turn such a non-issue into an issue?
  • It's an actual problem for me because I'm from the real Macedonia in north Greece.
  • What makes the other Macedonia imaginary? It is a real place. I have visited it several times. Then again, if you know which one is your Macedonia, then what is the problem? Neither Greece nor FYROM own Ancient Macedonia, first of all because its people were neither Slavs nor Greeks (despite the empire embracing and exporting the Hellenic culture), and secondly, because it no longer exists and you have to face the reality: FYROM has as much right to the name "Macedonia" as the Hellenic Republic's prefecture.
  • Who gives a *****. It's a free app. Suck it up and get on with your life.
  • HERE Drive+ shows , "This app is not compatible with this device" - Lumia 950XL. And also shows that you need to buy a Global License i.e IAP?! DFQ ?
    It's the same situation with the other HERE apps. 
  • on 950XL was able to d/l Here Drive+
  • AT&T 950 and still getting a "device not compatible" message.
  • The HERE drive showed I already owned it. So I downloaded it to my 950 and will do the same for my 550 Lord willing . Yet the other HERE drive said it wasn't compatible with my phone.
    Anyway it works. Don't have any app though for city lens.
  • Yeah, I wish City Lens was available for 950XL
  • I was able to download them in w10.
  • Maps, transit and Drive working on my 950 with Fast preview W10
  • Managed to find transit via the here Europe search
  • Sorry HERE, made the switch to Sygic while you were gone.
  • City Lens "...is no longer available" according to Store this morning, so you can scratch than one from the list.
  • I miss HERE city lens app. Which is still missing in windows 10 mobile.....
  • I'm getting am error that app is not compatible on my device.
  • No way, the technical issues are over. The store shows me 3 times Drive+, 2 times Transit and 2 times Maps. (All published by HERE Europe B.V., not the fake ones). 1 DRIVE+ app gives the status "installed", 2 others mention "device not compatible ". Dito for the Transit and Maps app, 1 shows "installed", 1 shows "device not compatible ".
  • I prefer Navigon for its UX (user experience) while driving. It uses the offline downloaded maps from HERE and adds information and features such as traffic and lane guidance. I use HERE Maps when not driving for its arial views and its interior maps, such as for Mall of America in Bloomington MN (suburb of Minneapolis and St. Paul Minnesota).
  • Only Europe?
  • Are you sure for HERE City Lens? It doesn't seem to be available on W10M over here in France...
  • Thanks for fixing the technical problem
  • City lens not in the U.S. either
  • I hate copilot!
  • Here city lens??
  • Maps transit ans city lens are not available in India. Maps and transit are blocked due to some policy.
  • There are a two apps for each Maps, drive, and transit. It appears that one is for w10 and one for w8
  • Gahh! An old bug has resurfaced. It's using more battery than it can charge with my car charger on my 950xl. Had not happened since my 920. I'm not taking a slow trickle either. The phone went from 98% to 78% over a 45 min. Drive
  • U using wireless charging or car charger ?
  • Get a 2+ amp car charger. 950 is high resolution and large screen phone , its not unlikely. My 640 is fine with battery with this maps
  • I'm using a USB-C car charger and have no charging problems when using GPS etc.
  • Sooo happy to see here maps back for Windows mobile 10...infact test i tweeted them when is the app cmg ...today its here....guys installing here maps and here drive....its takes few tries to see app is compatible
  • City lens is not yet available
  • HERE Apps are much better than boring Windows Maps :3
  • Why is it showing not compatible with 950?? :(
  • They don't seem to work with my 950. Anyone else having issues?
  • In US. HERE Transit:  "This app has been blocked due to Company Policy." WTF?
  • It initially shows that it isn't compatible with 950xl in the store, but if you go into your app library you can get it there :)
  • Kinda feels like home doesn't it ? ☺
  • Badly waiting for HERE maps
  • I swear I am so fed up by people posting the same comment without bothering to read the previous ones.
  • Not compatible with 950 XL still
  • It is for me.
  • In India it is pathetic...
  • I think it has been removed again or made not available for the 950 xl I downloaded and installed it soon as this post went up. I'm using a 950 xl so glad its back all works like it did before in win 8.1. I shared it to my mate who has a 950 xl and hour later said the link to the store says app removed and when search it says not compatible. I'm guessing there are bugs that need ironing out still. I count myself lucky having it as it's so much better than maps in the UK.
  • "If you're a die-hard HERE fan"
    Rich...less is more! Unless you are being paid per word, just don't bother with all the journalese guff.
  • Still Lumia only?
  • Says not compatible with my device?? W10 L950XL
  • Does HERE still not do active rerouting? That's the best benefit of Waze in a traffic nightmare city like LA. I also don't like how HERE and Maps cut out the audio completely when I'm using my phone for podcasts or music.
  • Offtopic - almost every single Microsoft app updated, I have 28 app to update in store.
  • Did you change your display scaling or use the Display Dock?
  • IS lane assist available in here dive+?? also, what about biking routes??
  • Much bigger fan of Windows 10 maps than HERE.
  • Not able to install in Lumia 730 windows 10
  • So happy love this so much better than any other app I have used
  • Not compaible with L950!   
  • Here City Lens is showing as not available - checking from Canada - and checking using the Here Europe B.V. hint.
  • Sadly, the App Suite is not compatable with an unlocked 950 XL running 10586.63 on ATT :(
  • Not true. Read the comments. Install it from your app library.
  • Lumia 950 / W10. It says the app is not compatible with my device for HERE Maps, Drive+, Transit.
  • Wow.... I love the city lens....
  • All three HERE apps now installed to my 950xl from my App Library in the Windows Store.  Very happy to have HERE Drive back!
  • For those with 950 and 950xl: There are two instances of HERE Drive and HERE Maps, both the same name, one is incompatible, the other installs correctly.
  • Awesome! All my favorites are back. Maps is also a good app, but well.
  • Here maps - installed, Here transit-installed, Here city lens-not available, here drive-not compatible with my device?????? Why?!?!?! :-( I really needed drive after the hard reset I did a couple of weeks ago and now I have this continuing problem...doh!
  • List your App Librbay in the Windows Store and install it form there, it works.
  • Um....there is 2 of every here app on the store XD ROFL Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Sadly they are not compatible with my 950
  • Update. I can get drive for my 950 and that's all would Luke to get Here maps they are better than windows maps
  • Gotta get the HERE maps. Not being able to use the compass feature in Windows Maps has been a real problem.
  • I install 'Sysapp Pusher' from marketplace and use the links to install all of the here suites on my L950.
  • Here Drive, Maps & Transit not compatible with L950
  • Welcome back!
  • Halleluya. Maybe the new Maps app is better for some. Maybe HERE is. I liked the HERE maps better when I could run them both during the preview period. They have been missing from my Win 10 devices for a while, so I don't know which is better at the moment. Maps has been improving. Nice to have the option though.
  • Sure wish I could use Bing Vision to read the QR code to get to the store entry. Why isn't there a little eye when I use searchto look at stuff, like the little note to listen for music???
  • Still cant sign into app with Facebook windows maps app still is much better
  • Yeah! I like that Microsoft is trying to get their native apps up to par, but HERE apps still set the bar. (How's that for mixing metaphors? Haha!)
  •   No luck with HERE City Lens L950-ATT      
  • I cant download city lens on my 950
  • While the W10 Maps is really good, what I've been missing most about HERE+ has been the ability to silence spoken directions while I'm listening to music.
  • There's two version of Here map, Drive+, and Transit. One for mw8.1 and the other mw10. Search for HERE maps in store (mine is mw10). Roll to "published by" and tab on "HERE EUROPE B. V." and it will direct to a list of 6 apps. There will be three right for mw10.
  • Microsoft Maps is actually 3-in-1 of Drive. It has Map, Drive+, and Transit. Not only so, a Microsoft version "Lens". The map files is the same. The only problem is your favorites saved will not be in Microsoft Maps.
  • Any word on City Lens?...USA, Lumia Icon, Win 10 Insider preview
  • Not able to download the maps on my windows 10 mobile.. I am a user from India with 950xl.. Is the launch only for US??
  • Apparently not compatible with my Lumia 950 - what gives?
  • Anyone able to install City lens? I can't find it in the store and QR Code/Link also not working :(
  • Still can't download them with my new Lumia 950 XL. It says "this app has been blocked due to company policy." Mind you, I bought the phone for personal use. Anybody experiencing the same issue?
  • Personally, the Windows 10 Map app is a disaster to use while driving, and its missing features like voice over bluetooth, and just a poorly executed UI frustrate me. I'm really glad to get back the Here apps on my 950Xl, but I had to use sysapppusher to get it back.  Even my "My apps" list wouldn't populate.  The selection in the store says, "not available for this device".  I have to agree with that developer who recently said that the Win10 store is a catastrophe on an apology on a dysfunctional beta.   Why the hell didn't Ballmer and Co spend the extra 1-2 billion to get Nokia Here as well stupifies me.  Even if they were handing it over to uber in a year, they could have gotten significantly more equity in Uber, and that would likely nullify the whole cost of the Nokia aquisition. 
  • Nice but the $64 question is: can you install the map data on an SD card???
  • In my Lumia 550 not possible to download apps tell me your device not supported. No possible to w10m install any here apps.
  • Glad to see Here Drive+ back! I wish the W10 Maps had the ability to silence the spoken directions, as Here Drive+ allows. Listening to music and having it interrupted with turn directions can be annoying.  
  • Not available for install on Lumia Icon.
  • HERE Maps in the Store tells me that 'this app is not compatible with this device' on my Lumia 1520 with the latest Windows 10 M preview build.
    Transit installs. City Lens does not even show up in the Store for me. However, from my Store Library I could install Maps and Drive. It seems there technical issues with the Store are not weeded out completely yet.      
  • Good to have this
  • I am happy to have HERE Maps again on my Windows Phone (950XL)...
  • HERE Drive is ungrammatical. "In 0.7 mile, turn right." Maps gets it right. "In 0.7 miles, turn right." In every other way, HERE is better, but the grammar drives me crazy.
  • Hurray! I've been trying to use the 'competition' (W10 Maps, Navigon, Waze) and all of them are useless in comparison, the screen layout and information design of Here Drive is miles ahead of the rest. And I'm so happy that I can use the Commute function again - even though Waze has a similar function, the screen is too crowded to actually be useful. The same goes for Here Transit. No competition. EDIT: 
    950XL, no problems here
  • Does anyone know alternative for Windows 10 missing Here City Lens?
