Nokia’s HERE Maps updated with a number of worldwide improvements


Nokia has just announced a new update to HERE Maps that brings multiple worldwide improvements to both Android and Windows Phone apps. The update includes new navigable countries, significant improvements to nine islands and territories, new water features and public transportation enhancements. There’s a lot to cover here, so let’s jump right in.

Nokia has added three new navigable countries with support for turn-by turn directions, including Cyprus, Mayotte and Zimbabwe. A number of significant improvements have also been added to Comoros, Djibouti, Eritrea, Fiji, Gambia, Liberia, Madagascar, Sierra Leone and Somalia. These improvements include major road identification and the addition of land usage information.

The company has also improved the way lakes, rivers and ponds look around the entire app. Public transportation is also seeing some notable updates in Kaohsiung, Taipei, Curitiba, Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo and Singapore. These locations now show more accurate subway, tram lines and train path routes.

This update isn’t rolling out in the Google Play Store, so you’ll need to wait for it to ping your device. Once the notification makes its way to you, tap it, then tap the update button to get the improvements. This is a pretty big update, so if you’re looking for an alternative to Google Maps, now may be a good time to try it out.
