I'm going to South Korea in a week and I wanted to download a map for offline use (data rates are quite prohibitive...). Unfortunately, I can't find it anywhere. There are many Asian countries available, but Korea is nowhere to be found.

I'm running the latest available Windows Phone 8 version (8.0.10501.127) on a HTC 8S phone. Is this a bug? Am I missing something obvious? Are there any workarounds (alternatives?).


Indeed it looks like South Korea is not available on HERE maps (and Japan neither!). Luckily there are some clients for OSM in the store that might give you what you need. The top contender seems to be Offline Maps, though do also have a look at GPS Navigator aSpass, Simple OSM and QuoVadis Mobile.

  • I can't help but notice that all of these are paid. Any free alternatives you would suggest?

  • @Tomasz As far as I can tell there are no free alternatives for Windows Phone.
