HERE Maps for Windows 8.1 is updated today and brought three new features to the app. The features introduced in this update of HERE Maps for Windows 8.1 are based on the requests and suggestions of the app users from all over the world. These three new features are: Manual Positioning, New City pages, Route options and way points. And above all, HERE Maps is now available globally.
For devices like the desktop PC, in which GPS chip may not be available, HERE Maps use the network positioning of such users . But if the user’s ISP or business network provides an incorrect information, there is no need to worry as the update HERE Maps now allows users to set their location manually. This can be done by tapping on the green dot to the bottom right of screen when the app is opened or also in the settings of the app, where users can change the units of distance (kilometers etc). User’s position is automatically detected, but it can be changed to ‘manual’. Users can always change from ‘manual’ to ‘automatic’ location detection.
New City Pages:
City pages allow users to view all that’s near the location of a user or wherever he’s going to. These City pages are now renovated with this new update. Places can directly be explored now on the City pages. When users zoom out, major cities of the world can be explored. Also, detailed weather forecasts can also be seen.
Route options and way points:
With this updated HERE Maps on Windows 8.1, users can change route options. Way points (up to 8) to the user’s route choice can be added and they can changed via drag-and-drop method and this route can be printed. This can be very useful to someone who is planning a road trip. And also, users can explore places along the route.
The update HERE Maps for Windows Phone has been released, but it may take time to reach the Windows Store of any particular region. If anyone does not find the updated version, make sure to check after some time later.
