    Which is a big big step in the right direction. Here Maps, previously part of the Nokia brand, now looking at expanding beyond Lumia/Windows devices have taken the first plunge.

    Here Maps, their Navigation app, is now available for download on Android. Which settles my biggest gripe with Google maps. The ability to save offline maps (It is not the same as saving a fixed area offline).

    With this app, currently you can use free voice navigation in 118 countries. I have been using Nokia maps for over 5 years now (can't remember exactly when). And barring a few mis-turns, have never been disappointed.

    Guess I'll get a chance to say bye-bye to Lumia then, unless Microsoft really does something incredible with Windows 8.1

    Do you find it better than Google Maps? Garmin?

    This is comparable to Garmin. Definitely better than Google maps since the results are not promoted or paid for. So you get results in accordance for what you searched for.

    Plus Google maps do not give you the speed. This gives you your true speed as well as the speed limit on the road.

    Plus does not burn data on roaming when you are traveling.

    No ads, and more accuracy for navigation.

    Do remember that keeping data on will get you a faster position fix though. You can switch it off once the location has been determined.

    Hmmmm.. interesting. Any apps you got installed that you are not using? Have you tried emptying the WhatsApp media folders? They save all received and sent media.
