Nokia Here Maps App Updated for Android and Windows Phone

Contradicting a December report that claimed Nokia wouldn't update its Here Maps app for Windows Phone, Nokia on Wednesday announced updates for the Here Maps apps for Android and Windows Phone.
The latest update of Here Maps brings some important features, such as better representation of roads, in-land water, rivers and ponds, along with detailed subway routes, improved public transport tracking and more.
Nokia says that with the update for Here Maps, users from Cyprus, Mayotte and Zimbabwe can now make use of turn-by-turn navigation feature. Improvements to the maps for Comoros, Djibouti, Eritrea, Fiji, Gambia, Liberia, Madagascar, Sierra Leone and Somalia have also been made.
The Here Maps users will now also see a greater number of small in-land water bodies which were ignored previously. The firm also shows an example on the updated app on its Here 360 website. The Here Maps team has expanded its improved public transit information (which was initially only limited to Chicago) to Kaohsiung, Taipei, Curitiba, Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo and Singapore. Users will now be able to see a surface view, including the buildings and other places, above the transit lines.
Nokia says that while the rollout of the updated Here Maps apps has already started, it may take a while to reach all users worldwide. Once Android users receive the Here Maps update notification, they can tap on it and go for the 'update' button placed at the bottom of the screen. Users would also need to restart the app once the update has been downloaded and installed. Windows Phone users would find the process bit familiar. They would have to open the settings tab, tap on Application > Maps > Check for updates.
