It wasn't part of 7.x nor it is part of 8.x. I wouldn't see it as part of the phone operating system at all. IMHO it doesn't belong there. Modern phones get their power mostly out of the overwhelming number of applications available. Nokia is indeed hard working to separate their phones from other Windows Phones, so there is an app called Nokia Transit/...

Reading an article on HERE.com uses the phrase: If other users of HERE Drive are on a busy road and stop for more than would be expected, the mapping servers are notified and this anonymous data is passed onto other users. If this real-time traffic data coincides with one of your Commutes, the Live tile will notify you that your journey may take ...

Today I discovered there's an app in Nokia Beta Labs which lets you move maps to the SD card. It's called Storage Check: http://betalabs.nokia.com/trials/Storage-Check You just need to register your Nokia account and phone to the service. With this it should now be possible to offline as many maps as you want on your 620. For anyone else, the app works ...

You need to download a Map app with possibility to be chosen (don't know what is necessary). After that follow this steps: Go to Settings Swipe right to applications Go to maps Choose the map experience you want to start in "set default voice navigation app" I recommend gMaps Pro as a Google Maps solution but I think Waze uses the same maps.

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.

Another great resource is Appsco.pe (https://appsco.pe), a collection of the very best PWAs on the Internet.

Unfortunately some countries are not available. I don't know any official list, but if the needed country is not listed in the download section there is no way to get it. :/

You can use the Map Creator tool to fix errors yourself. The edits will only be displayed in a "community" version of the maps until they are reviewed by Nokia and fully integrated into the Here database.

Nope, you're not missing anything. The UI won't let you do this... There is a work around, though. Start the download of one region, then tap "cancel" in the app bar. Then, start the download of another region. You'll notice a message asking whether to resume the first download. If you tap "not now" you can go and add another region to download. When you'...

How much map data do you want offline? I just checked and Austria is 200MB (based on your profile I chose this one). The entire USA is 2.5GB. I have a 920, so no SD card to test with, but I am thinking you can't choose where to store them at this time.

In Windows Phone 8 Microsoft has switched from Bing to Nokia Maps for all of its data: Is Nokia Maps on all Windows Phone 8 smartphones? The Nokia Location Platform is powering the Windows Phone 8 ecosystem, not Nokia Maps, which is an app. On non-Nokia Windows Phone 8 smartphones, the default mapping application is Windows Phone Maps. This is ...

If this is a problem in the HERE map data, maybe you could tell HERE (or even suggest a change) on http://here.com/mapcreator to get it fixed in the next map data update?

From http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Windows_Phone it appears that there are two apps for WP 7.x that will do cached OSM maps. Take a look and see if either one of them meets the need.

I don't know which navigation app you used in your LG WP 7.5 phone, but you can have voice guidance with your Lumia 920 by using Here Drive. In Here Drive, select Settings > Navigation voice, and choose the voice you want to use. If needed, press the "Download New" button to get other voices. Some other instructions that may help you : http://here.com/help/...

When you hard-reset, it'll ask you if you want to wipe the SD card too (assuming you didn't remove the card first). Don't wipe the card. After hard-reset, the OS will default to storing maps on internal storage. Go to Settings -> System -> Offline maps` and tell the phone to store offline maps on the SD card, then exit Settings. You may also need to restart ...

On Windows mobile 10 the default maps app is all you need. It uses the downloaded offline maps and has turn by turn voice guidance without the need of internet connection and by using GPS detection just like the Here app. Imagine the Nokia Here Drive+ part of the default preinstalled microsoft maps app. Now integrated as part of the OS itself to let you ...

Given that Madeira is a Portuguese province, it should be included in the map of Portugal. I just tested it on my Lumia 950 - downloaded the offline map for Portugal, enabled flight mode and verified that the Maps app shows full detail for Madeira. I see you mentioned Drive+, which means you're using WP 8.1, but the underlying maps should still be the same.

You can enter it using Drive+. You will have to find the NE coordinates from your longitude and altitude and feed them to you Drive+ app.

Try app NaviComputer (https://www.microsoft.com/en-US/store/apps/NaviComputer/9WZDNCRFHXWR) It can download and upload gpx-files to and from your pc. An additional pc client is needed. This is explained on their website. I have been using it for a year and am very satisfied.

Well the only way you can use the offline feature of the here maps is by manually selecting and downloading the regions through which you will be travelling. But i have the perfect solution for your problem why not use HERE DRIVE it has the capability of downloading the minimal map data so that you can travel through different regions without having to ...

I'm on 8.1 dev preview and I just tried the link you posted and I got Bing showing the OS map, not HERE app starting up.

Unfortunately this is not possible. Its possible to change the default navigation app in the settings, but not the default maps app. I hope this will change soon...

There is no way on WP to guarantee that an app is always running. And there's no way in WP to launch a program on startup. Therefore, is there no reliable way to do what you're doing. Certain apps can track your location if you start them up and make certain that they're always running (manually), but the app can be shut down at any time by the operating ...

Track My Life is an app that has features I believe you are asking for. It periodically takes your location and present this on a map with other statistics about how long you are at each location and how often.

Yes you are missing something. Tap the circle with three checkmarks and horisontal lines at the bottom of the country list. Now you can select multiple countries and then download them at once. However, you can't mix whole countries and regions of big countries.

The ability to store App and Game data (I'd count maps as app data) on an SD card is rumored to be included in the coming Windows Phone 8.1 update: http://www.wpcentral.com/windows-phone-81-features I'll update this answer once Windows Phone 8.1 is released to the public.
