It's the best offline map but definitely not the best online map. Useful when travelling through a state. a country or a continent; you can just download the whole continent's map and use it offline and not worry about data in rural areas. Heck, you can even download the whole world map and store it on an SD card. Google maps only offers offline map for a small area and not even for a whole state or country, though Google Maps online map is more useful.
I think here maps is very good for directions compared to google maps and apple maps that I have compared it to.
ZloiYuri, 28 Dec 2017No. Audi AG, BMW AG and Daimler AG are owners of HERE Global BV. Ex- Ovi maps and Nokia Maps. ... moreCorrect on all counts.
Before Nokia bought it, it was Navteq. Others including Intel (15%) were announced in December 2016 as buying a stake too.
I have here maps in my volvo and they are not the best, partly due to a serially cumbersome interface, but at least they get 2 to 3 updates a year included for life.
I've taken the app off my devices because of the gaps in mapping and dreadful POI which I think have been acquired as an end of line fire sale job lot. Maybe Google were replacing theirs and just dumped the old ones on here.
Anonymous, 28 Dec 2017Basically the mother company Volkswagen owns HERE.No. Audi AG, BMW AG and Daimler AG are owners of HERE Global BV. Ex- Ovi maps and Nokia Maps. Actually Here WeGo android app is worst and slowest navigation app I ever used. Don't know what about car services, but LG producing b-grade phones for several years. But for price of A++ oem. Don't think they will do something worth to notice.
