Using your location
Why can't HERE Maps find my location?
Check that you've allowed HERE Maps and your phone to find your location.
In HERE Maps
Go to Settings in the HERE Maps app and turn on Use your location
In your phone settings
In your phone's main menu, tap Settings > location > on.
Things that can affect your GPS signal may include: being indoors, tall buildings, poor weather and some car windscreens. You'll also get a better fix on your location if you've got a data connection.
Can I use walk navigation in HERE Maps for driving?
Walk navigation doesn't work when your speed exceeds 30 km/h. Also, walk navigation is optimised for walking - it doesn't take into account, for example, one-way streets. When you need instructions for driving, select car mode in route details and launch HERE Drive by selecting start navigation.
How do I share a place with my friends in HERE Maps for Windows Phone?
You can share a place in the following way:
- Search for the place or long press a place on the map.
- Tap the place icon to view the place details.
- Tap the share icon at the bottom of the screen.
- Select the way you want to share the place:
- messaging (SMS)
- post a message (social networks)
Your friends can view the place in their web browser by opening the link included in the message.
How accurate is the last known place shown in the livesight view?
The accuracy is based on your phone's location info. When the connection between the sensor and the phone is lost, the phone stores its location. The better the phone's location info based on GPS or Wi-fi signal, the better the accuracy. Generally, the accuracy is better outdoors than indoors.
