Nokia’s renowned HERE Maps suite made it to the Play Store last year, and quickly became the best alternative to Google Maps there is, bringing with it the most packed free offline navigation that can currently be found on Android. At the time, Nokia said that it will halt development of the HERE maps app for Windows Phone, and focus on Android, as well as iOS instead, but the iOS version has been dragging its feet until today.
The software features voice-guided turn-by-turn navigation for vehicles and pedestrians, as well as public transport schedules, lane switching and traffic guidance. Of course, the most notable feature of Nokia’s HERE maps app is that it supports offline navigation thanks to your device’s built-in GPS receiver. This allows you to explore the map and navigate yourself to a desired location without an Internet connection, and you can use all features of HERE Maps while being offline, HD voices and all. This includes public transport schedules, too, and even walks in the park.
