Nokia HERE, it’s full-mapping solution, was first announced back in November 2012. It’s now been rolled out as a full experience at MWC 2013. Here we take a look at HERE Maps, HERE Drive, HERE Transit and HERE City Lens at MWC 2013.
HERE is the mapping experience built on 25 years of leadership in mapping technology and as of MWC 2013 offers the only true offline maps experience, as well as the largest indoor map inventory, and the largest public transport coverage of any location service possible.
Nokia has introduced HERE for Windows Phone 8. HERE Maps, HERE Drive (with regional navigation), HERE Drive+ (with global navigation), HERE Transit and HERE City Lens are available now on the Windows Phone Store.
The big push behind the new HERE features is that they work seamlessly together, making it easier than ever to switch up your journey from foot, to public transport and then on into a car. For example, from HERE Maps you can launch HERE Drive(+) or HERE Transit. In HERE Transit you now get a map overview of nearby stations and stops, and when you need walk navigation to get to the stop or to the final destination, you can start HERE Maps from there.
HERE will ship pre-installed on the brand new Nokia Lumia 720 and Nokia Lumia 520 and quite naturally delivers the best experience on your Nokia Lumia. If you’ve already got Nokia Maps, Nokia Drive, Nokia Transport and Nokia City Lens on your smartphone look out for an update as it will be rolling out from today.
What’s more, to further strengthen the Windows Phone ecosystem, Microsoft and Nokia are making HERE Maps, HERE Drive and HERE Transit available to people with any Windows Phone 8 smartphone. This exclusive offer is available in US, Canada, Mexico, UK, France, Germany, Italy and Spain.
