Nokia has just released HERE Maps of its latest Asha 501. Nokia promised to bring us soon its mapping service to the new Asha platform during the Asha 501 announcement event and it kept its promise.
This beta version of HERE Maps is specifically designed for devices without GPS, but still offers drive, walk and public transport directions.
As other available versions of HERE Maps you will be able to explore standard, satellite, public transports and traffic maps; search places and addresses; and plan routes.
HERE Maps is already available at Nokia’s Store and you can get it on your Asha 501 right now. The app will be available for all other Asha phones to follow running on the new Asha platform and will be optimized later for those with integrated GPS chip.
