HERE is Nokia's answer to Google Maps and Apple's Maps. Its flagship feature is downloadable maps that you can easily use offline when traveling without an internet connection.
At first glance, HERE is very similar to the competition.
You can search for addresses, restaurants and shops, and get directions very easily.
HERE has turn by turn navigation too, and if you sign up for a free HERE account, you can download any maps you want.
