I heard some stuff about this....but it was pretty scattered.

So what about this?
I just downloaded it today and i am still getting maps for it.

Ideas?
Thoughts?
Concerns?

I think it is a good map for roads and routing. Pretty going POI content. And you can download the maps for offline.

as I started to install the app and saw it wanted access to all my contacts and phone info I decided they had over stepped their welcome and decided Locus, OSMand and Oruxmaps was enough to play with....and I can get the same maps using Mobile Atlas Creator......

They want your contacts so that you can navigate to addresses in your contact list.

Pretty cheeky of Here to add a link on the Garmin Lifetime Update sale page.

Navteq is now Here and here so there you have it. Garmin was obviously ok with it.

Guess you missed the memo. Nokia OWNS Navteq.

Yup, I got the update as well. Still looking but it must have been a change that wasn't a UI change.

The Here app is now compatible with my Samsung tablet. It still doesn't work on my HTC phone though. I've been playing with it on the tablet a bit and like the offline capability.

Has anyone tried custom routes with it yet? Can you make routes in Basecamp and import them into HERE?

I use HERE on a Windows phone.

You can build routes on HERE.COM....however I am not sure how you can get them to a phone for use on Here Drive. Individual waypoints will auto sync to the phone but not saved routes from the URL. I have not tried to get Basecamp routes to the phone and would not have a clue how to do it.

I also like that HERE.com gives you three different routings options but again none of these routes transfer to the phone although the first HERE route option is always the one chosen by the phone's app Here Drive if you are point and shoot navigating to a waypoint/destination. If I am using the cage I review the three options beforehand (with traffic delays cranked in) and then let Here Drive auto correct if I choose another route.

whoa nelly. i found a person using windows phone, on advrider. shazam.

have you found any offline mapping programs that allow importing/exporting maps, tracks, routes, waypoints and stuff ?


you know if/when windows 10 is released it's supposed to allow for some desktop applications to be used on windows phones / tablets, if they're coded correctly. i can't see many apps (or, in desktop speak, PROgrams) being a very good crossover, but hey, the billion or so win32 programs might have a few that rock for navigation on the phone.

well, whatchagot ?

I asked about GPX and file transfers, here is what I got

Hi Dave,

Thank you for reaching out, your feedback is very important to us. In the near feature there are no plans to introduce GPX to HERE app, but there are plans to add a feature on here.com that helps to plan the specific route and send it to the device.

I looked at a few others at the store but opted to stay with Here and I like the fact that I get the whole USA on the phone. My Zumo 550 is still holding on so I use the WP for backup nav and cage use.

At this point the Garmin still has the edge for me especially as I preplan long tours (street bike) on Mapsource with multiple routes. I may take a look again when I upgrade in 2015 to a bigger phone but................???

The performance with Here Drive is pretty good though and I have received quite a few upgrades in the couple of years I have been using it. If Nokia updates to allow routes (in addition to waypoints right now) to be sent to the phone that would be great and would warrant another look as a MC tour GPS.
