It took a while for the official Nokia Here Maps to get landed on the Windows Store, but it was sure worth the wait as it brings the features which have made it into one of the best mapping apps in the world. And now it has received a fresh update which makes it even better.

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!

According to the official changelog, the latest version of the Here Maps app for Windows 8.1 has been updated with various bug fixes and stability improvements. From what I’ve researched, it seems that there were some problems with the calculation of walking distances, but it’s now been solved. Since the apps that you download from the Windows Store are universal, you can use it on your Windows Phone device, as well. The dedicated Windows Phone app has received the same update, plus the ability to see the map the way you want by tilting and rotating it.

For me, the launch of the official Here Maps for Windows 8 has been a huge help, since I was just about to acquire a standalone GPS navigator. With the app, now I can basically transform my Windows 8 tablet into a real navigation tool. Not to mention how glad Windows RT owners must probably be!
