PSA: Updates for offline maps on Windows Phone now available
Offline map data is a Windows Phone feature you don’t appreciate until you really need it. While you’re probably in data coverage most of the time, those few times you’re not really make you love having access to your maps. Today we’re looking at an update for offline map data on Windows Phone!
Want to update? Of course you do. Head to settings > applications > maps > check for updates to have your phone check for updates. We’ve got reports of regions like India, California and elsewhere picking up new maps. The update size will vary depending on what maps you’ve elected to download for offline use.
Why download maps? The offline map data allows you to search for places and get directions without using a data connection. It’ll also help you save money by not consuming precious data through your carrier.

Freezes up a lot and the time between freezes is becoming shorter. My only solution is uninstalling Here Drive+ and reinstalling it again. Started happening again (Wondering if it's just me...)
~127mb for Brazil.
Now how can we expect to find a location if the address is going to be off? Is there any way to calibrate this?
It's sad, because Cortana doesn't even know my correct address. :(
I've also been to US twice, visiting NY, Washington, Miami by car, all the time using Here Maps and no data spent with my carrier.
And I have been using the Lumia 920. No problems at all. Great device.
