    I loved HERE maps, and still do. But so far seems like Windows runs better power-wise. My battery life is improved (even when I have not even downloaded offline maps on Windows and use voice on loud, and on HERE offline maps were downloaded and voice muted!)

    But the comment about language is understandable.

    Also LOVE the fact that I can pull down for list view, something HERE Drive really needs.

    There HERE family included transit, even though Windows Maps has the option I have not used it... so all I can say is I am more familiar with HERE transit.

    But if this is a purely Drive vs Maps... I can say that I am using Maps and haven't felt the need to download Drive.

    Two big reasons that I like Here apps over Windows Maps:
    For Here Drive, the button and UI are big enough so that I don't have trouble operating the app while driving. It feels like on a navigation and the instructions are clear. Windows maps doesn't provide such layout and the text fonts are so small. The instructions are sometimes confusing when it shows two parallel front-facing arrows and the right arrow is highlighted which actually means u need to go to the right lane and take the exit instead of staying on the same lane.

    So I know now what others have mentioned about compass. The maps never shows what direction your facing which helps in deciding how to get to your route. It will help when the phone knows which direction your facing in order to start the directions going the way you're facing.

    The sad part of all this is, Here Maps on IOS are very nice.
