How do I change the map view in HERE Maps for mobile web?
To change map views, tap the 'map view' icon in the bottom right corner of the screen and select one of the following:

Public transport view Too see selected public transport services, such as metro or commuter railway routes

How do I use HERE Maps for mobile web offline?
To save on data costs, especially when travelling, you can save an area of the map on your phone and use it without an internet connection.
- Choose the area to save and tap the 'menu' icon, then Save a map area
- Zoom in or out to adjust the size of the area to be saved
View a saved area
Tap the 'menu' icon then View your saved map.
You can zoom in and out of the saved area, but you can only search and get routes with an internet connection. Searching and routing will be carried out on your downloaded map when you're connected to the internet, which means no new data is downloaded, and your data costs are lower.
I got the directions I wanted on HERE Maps for mobile web, but what if I prefer to see a list of manoeuvres rather than the route on the map?
Tap the 'list' icon to see a list of turn-by-turn manoeuvres. If you want to go back to the full route overview on the map, just tap the 'list' icon again. (Note that it changes appearance depending on which view you're looking at.)
Can I see street addresses with house numbers on HERE Maps?
Yes, in some cities. To see house numbers, zoom in to street level or tap and hold on a building on the map. Then tap the place bubble. You'll be able to see the full address and phone number.
