nokia here maps 2

Nokia has announced availability of HERE Maps for Android, their navigation app that’s backed by years of the company’s expertise in navigation and directions. The app has hit Google Play in beta form, bringing offline maps and navigation, including support for public transit, in over 100 countries. The total list of supported countries jumps to 118 with these 18 places being afforded a spot on the list today:

Algeria, Angola*, Bangladesh*, Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire, Cyprus, Iraq, Libya, Mauritania, Mauritius, Nepal*, Paraguay, Saint Helena, Senegal*, Sri Lanka*, Suriname*, Zambia*, Zimbabwe*

The asterisk notes countries where full road information is not yet available, so you’ll mostly be limited to maps and won’t get to partake in full turn-by-turn goodness. Folks who have already sideloaded the APK from Nokia’s site will receive the latest version of Google Play without having to do anything, while those not yet in on the fun can park it right here for a no-nonsense download. Here’s to Nokia continuing to find a solid home on Android, and let’s hope their interest in a platform they once denounced won’t fade away anytime soon.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. In Japan, Google Play says the app is incompatible with ALL of my devices, from my Nexus 7 (2013) running 5.0.1 to my S5 to several older phones and tablets.

  2. Didn’t find any use for the app. Here are the issue it uses too much space . I am not sure why it needs access to my I’d, user account, downloads. Apps is real laggy and slow to run when you to try to search. Google off line map offer more than enough when I was hiking on tulum MX.
