HERE Maps Update Windows Phone

Nokia today announced an updated Map content for Windows Phone devices. There are updates in every continent, reflecting new or changed roads and constructions, and newly added details. Nokia has also done some major changes in the Maps, read it below.

  • Cyprus, Mayotte and Zimbabwe have had their entire maps updated to navigable status, meaning you can now get full turn-by-turn directions across those countries. Meanwhile, there have been significant improvements to the maps for Comoros, Djibouti, Eritrea, Fiji, Gambia, Liberia, Madagascar, Sierra Leone and Somalia.
  • They have improved the representation of rivers which, of course, can vary in size over the passage of the seasons, making them tricky to map.
  • They have made an improvement to the way public transit lines are represented in Chicago, to better match the reality of their geography. This transition to accurately tracing the paths of transit lines has now expanded. In this latest update, Kaohsiung, Taipei, Curitiba, Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo and Singapore have had their maps upgraded to better show the path of subway, train and tram lines.

To update to latest Map content, open the settings app on your phone, then tap the applications tab > maps > check for updates.
