HERE Maps team today released an updated Map data for Windows devices.
- We significantly improved our coverage in Belarus, especially in cities and the roads connecting them. This has mostly been achieved by the passionate local mapping community, who have mapped 22,000 kilometres and added 11,000 POIs with HERE Map Creator.
- Also, maps for Barcelona and the surrounding area have just received a sweet update for the summer time. When you activate the transit view you can see commuter train lines (Rodalies de Barcelona) in addition to the previous coverage of Metro and FGC lines.
- In Brazil, we made it possible to download more granular maps, requiring less space on your phone, to aid both locals and tourists alike. Previously the country had been split into 5 territories but now you can download 32 smaller packages corresponding to local regions and states. So if you want to go to the state of Acre in northern Brazil, you no longer need to waste valuable phone space with the whole north region of the country.
- Speaking of countries you can download, you can now find the British Indian Ocean Territory in the package for India and the Pitcairn islands in the Australia/Oceania one. If you’re heading to Antarctica you may want to know that South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands are now listed under South America.
Open the settings app on your phone, then tap the applications tab > maps > check for updates to get this update.
