Google Maps and Apple Maps Are Falling Behind as HERE Maps Has a Trump Card

2

Browsing maps is a common thing when one is preoccupied with the destination. HERE Maps is different than Apple Maps or Google Maps because it has a trump card.

We are talking about the free offline turn-by-turn navigation feature. As you can probably tell by its title, HERE Maps allows users to have access to this neat option without being connected to the internet. And this is something that neither Google Maps nor Apple Maps can offer. iOS and Android fans that have HERE Maps can quickly gain access to this offline turn-by-turn navigation element. You should keep on reading if you want to find out how to get your hands on the latter feature.

HERE Maps and its offline turn-by-turn navigation feature: How to get it!

Start by setting-up the HERE Maps, either for an iOS or Android gizmo. You can then go ahead and download all the maps that concern you. There is no limit to what kind of maps you can download.

Note: Make sure you have enough free space on your device because some maps (especially the ones involving continents) will take up a lot of space. So, clear up some space before you download such maps.

As soon as you have all the maps you need set-up on your device, you can browse though them in the offline mode. Just write the location you are interested in directly in the search bar and then click on the direction knob for further details. You can use the app to calculate the distance from one point to another or even to plan your itinerary.

Apparently Google is also keen on unveiling its own turn-by-turn navigation feature for those who are familiar with Google Maps. But, in the meantime why not benefit from HERE Maps and enjoy scanning maps with ease without having to recur to the internet.
