After the first big announcement of ‘Satya Nadella’ as the CEO of Microsoft, the next major announcement came of Microsoft investing $15 Million into the location based social networking service ‘Foursquare’ indicating how Microsoft is serious about bringing location-based enhancements to its products.
Nokia’s unique offline navigation solution HERE Maps powers all Lumia Windows Phone devices & is tightly integrated all through out. Since it’s offline, the Maps are already on your device (if you have downloaded them) and you can access them even if you are not in the range of your network unlike Google Maps which needs data connection continuously to work.
Nokia released significant updates for both HERE Drive & HERE Drive+ today bringing real time traffic updates complemented by the ability to find your parked car using LiveSight or Maps.
‘Lumia Amber’ brought with itself a very nifty feature of updating the pre-loaded HERE Maps on your Lumia device in a new way. Unlike previously where you had to download the maps entirely for any updates .. post Amber update the process has been made very easy & effective by Nokia where you just need to download the ‘added updates’ rather than the ‘whole map’.
Getting right & accurate map data always is an uphill task & more so due to its Dynamic nature but Nokia is one of those companies that prefer to not look back & keep on going.
