The Nokia Here Maps app from the Windows Store is a handy tool that drivers can use for navigation and GPS purposes, as well. It’s my favorite Windows 8 app for traveling, along with Via Michelin. What’s really awesome about it is that you can get walking, driving and public transit directions even if you don’t have an internet connection. Of course, you will need to download the maps at least for the first time, but then you will be able to use them for free – amazing!
