The on again, off again HERE Maps debacle on Windows mobile devices back on again, mostly. HERE Maps (HERE was once owned by Nokia but has been acquired by a consortium of German automakers) disappeared from the Windows Phone and Windows 10 Mobile stores, and stopped working even for those who already had the apps installed on their devices. A HERE social media lead let users know that the apps were not gone forever, and today the apps are back for Windows Phone and Windows 10 Mobile users.
I was able to install HERE Drive+ on my Lumia 950 XL, although when I checked earlier this morning I received a “This app is not compatible with this device” error message from the store, although the apps have indeed reappeared in the Store. Interestingly, on my Lumia 635, running the same build (10586.63) of Windows 10 Mobile, the app still is incompatible, but that may be a matter of support rolling out across devices. HERE Drive+ used to work fine on the 635.
