    I installed Here Maps on my iPhone, and did a quick navigation to a mall nearby.

    After installation -

    The Menu -

    Collections allow me to bookmark and save locations by custom categories or generic ones. Essentially you could use Here Maps without an account, however for the iOS version, you need to have an account before you can download maps offline. Using the same account across multiple devices also syncs your favorites and bookmarked locations.

    The setting options. Note that traffic flows will be available only when an internet connection is available.

    The request to set up an account before I could download any maps.

    After logging in.

    All available maps. Yep you can download all of these offline if you have around 30 GB of free space on your device.

    Now I couldn't take any screen shots of the navigation (since I was driving), but initial impressions are positive. The navigation is slightly choppy (compared to Google Maps), but the voice guide is much easier to understand.

    I'll share some more screen shots when I go navigating next time on Here Maps. Till then, it looks positive!
