HERE Maps has finally made its debut on Google Play.

HERE Maps offers offline navigation, has a wide of maps, and provides real-time public transportation information. The highlighted feature of HERE Maps is obviously its audio prompts that provides turn-by-turn navigation.

Some of the countries included in the beta version of the App are yet to be fully mapped and an update could be in the pipeline.
Here Maps was previously available in a selection of Samsung devices via the Galaxy App Store. HERE Maps is expected to launch on iTunes on any date in early 2015.
