What can I do if I can't find an address or place in HERE Maps on my Windows Phone?
If you have problems finding an address or place:
- Check that the address is spelled correctly.
- Try entering the first few characters of the place you're looking for and then choose from the list.
- Check that you're online (i.e., that you have a data connection). Online search is quicker and more accurate than offline search.
- The order of the search results is based on the distance from your current location. If searching for a place that's far away, use a more specific query.
