Offline mode works, 3D buildings still don’t

One of the reasons for the popularity of the HERE map is offline option which allows you to download the required maps and then Use navigation without an active internet connection. This is very handy if you travel through countries where roaming on the way is expensive, or you don’t want to pay for internet outside your home country – an option Google Maps doesn’t allow. Although it was announced that this option will be skipped In the next version, it seems that the creators of the application realized that this is one of the options that brought them popularity, so they did not want to disappoint users.

other side 3d buildings that were announced in beta still not available With this update, that doesn’t mean they won’t be included in any of the next versions.

If you have not already filed a new application, you will be greeted at the beginning welcome screen with directions Which talks about the changes in the new version. The new navigation should make it easier to navigate the route and update public transport in real time. Like Google Maps, HERE WeGo Maps asks you to turn on the option transportation which combines the information of other drivers to trace crowd I alternative route at the desired location.
