When do you most use HERE apps on Windows and Windows Phone?

HERE apps make a massive difference to millions of people each and every day, helping us get around, reach our destinations faster and find the most interesting places. We all prepare for journeys in different ways though, and we’d love to know more about how you actually use HERE apps for Windows and Windows Phone.


Do you get to grips with our beautiful maps on a computer before you set off, for instance? You can easily plan your journey in advance, using the HERE Maps for Windows app or heading over to here.com. That way, you’ll know exactly where you’re going, what roads you’ll be taking and there should be no surprises along the way.

Or do you prefer to stick with HERE Drive, HERE Maps and HERE Transit on your Windows Phone, getting turn-by-turn navigation or transit directions as you go? Apps like HERE Drive provide multiple benefits, such as being able to find new routes if you take a wrong turning, or find a quicker way on your commute when traffic begins to clog up.

Or are you the third type of HERE fan; using for example HERE Maps with LiveSight after you’ve actually arrived at your destination? This way, you’ll be able to discover events going on in the local area – from gigs and bands, to restaurants and hotels, to simple amenities like cash machines or public toilets.
