Hardest part for me when transiting from Nokia to... Well I have both iOS device and Android, one of the major downside for me was the awesome GPS - for free, worldwide, and truly offline. For those who want to dispute on Here Map - Nokia acquired Navteq back in 07 (I think?), which provides mapping data for Garmin and most of the European in-car GPS system. Out of the country I travel Here Map also has better POI compared to Google Maps in general. It truely offline, you can download selected country (or city, if offers) entirely and after without being on the internet (huge problem in some country if their internet is slow/expensive roaming). Today I'm finally excited that Nokia has announced it will be available for ALL Android devices: http://here.com/beta/android/?lang=en-US

It still in Beta, but so far running smooth on my S3 (modded TW JB ROM) and S4 Mini (Slimrom). It now only the PureView camera left that would still makes me think of Lumia... You guys definitely should give it a try.

PS. For the Lumia fanboys - I had a 1020, returned it within a month. I have no idea how you guys manage to stand it, but Windows on desktop is already troublesome for me. I don't want it in my pocket too.

Update: Nokia has officially pushed the app to Play Store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...app.maps&hl=en

The new version solved some SD card location mapping problem. It just gets better.

Thumbs up Thank you
Thank you very much for sharing this, I have just turned an old (not so old) Samsung Galaxy Trend Plus into a pure GPS only Nav. Would never have though of that with out you sharing this. Will be testing it out later today with the New Zealand Offline Maps. Well report back on how it goes.
