Google Maps vs. Nokia HERE: two great Android map apps compared – AndroidPIT US (blog)

Google Maps might be the king of Android map apps, but Nokia HERE maps has been gaining popularity. See how the two face off in our Android map apps comparison.


Well put together review. I haven’t tried Google in the car other than Waze and I should have used it on Saturday when I was driving in an area I don’t know, helping someone look at cars. We struggled in an industrial area to find somewhere to eat lunch because most of them were closed for the weekend.

It would also be interesting to see how it went with suburb definitions, because we were on Great South Rd in Auckland, where the street numbers start again at 1 in each suburb and a lot of companies choose vanity suburbs, i.e. they are on the cusp pf 2 suburbs and tell people they are in the one that sounds more upmarket.

Where I find Google really useful is when I am walking to meetings in a  city I don’t know well and I’m not driving.

I don’t think Nokia is available on a iPhone, so will make a start on giving Google a test this morning.

I’m keen on comments from anyone who has tired both.
