As long as Navteq mapping is still available to other navigation companies, I don't really care who owns HERE...
This isn't great news. I can see this screwing over WP users, why aren't MS snapping this up. They need it more than Apple as Bing Maps are not good, and has been ignored since HERE Maps. Here maps is one of the reasons I stuck with Nokia/Lumia Devices.
I hope it wouldn't be restricted on Windows Phone, although HERE uses Bing maps.
I like WP and i think that HERE is one of the best things on it. Why would they just give it away like this?

symbian is the best

There goes Here maps on my Samsung. will have to pay for it when Apple takes over. Why doesn't Samsung buy it?
HMMM apple are just trying to buy everything so they can be the best at everything but will only destroy everything. bye bye awesome free navigation app, you were the best while you lasted. im afraid youll become the worst and most expensive navigation app now.
heynekko, 23 Apr 2015Here is still the best free worldwide offline maps with voice guidance. Others need constant i... more'Here' is amazing.
I wouldn't mind if it was sold to Apple, I think they'd put it to good use. It would certainly be another selling point for Apple devices.
I hope it's not Apple...
worse happening of century , god damn this evil company
I want to ruin apple
I fear this is going to be the end of Here being a free cross platform app that lets you download the maps. Especially if Apple buys it (though Apple Maps does desparately need help).
