    • Collect places and routes.
    • Search for addresses and places of interest, such as restaurants, hospitals and airports.
    • Share the places you find with your friends, or post them on your favorite social networking sites.
    • Get driving, walking and public transportation directions.
    • Explore cities and countries around the world with rich satellite imagery.

  • How do I find a place – for example, a restaurant or other public place – on HERE?

    To find a place, type a search term into the search box. Be specific if you think there may be more than one result.

    For example:

    • Berlin Germany
    • Restaurants in New York

    You’ll then see one or more possible matches. Select the one you want from the map or the list on the left-hand side to see more about the place.

  • I couldn’t find what I was searching for. What can I do?

    If you can't find what you're looking for:

    • Add a city or town to your search. There may be more than one place with the same name.
    • Check your spelling. HERE will try to guess what you mean, but correct spelling will make it more likely that you'll find what you're looking for.

  • I can't see the map. What can I do?

    To use HERE, you need:

    • A Windows PC with a recent version of Firefox, Chrome or Internet Explorer (Note: HERE 3D is only available for Internet Explorer with a special plug-in), or

  • I’ve seen incorrect, duplicate, missing or out-of-date info for a place on HERE. What can I do?
