    It depends on the location.

    I'd tell you to use Here in Europe and the US, and Google Maps outside of those regions.
    However, the quality of Here has been improving, so we'll see.

    Here Maps I can use offline. Here in the UK they seem to be accurate, although they are still at least two years out of date in some parts of the UK (Margate, for instance).

    In the UK I use OS Maps as an adjunct to Here. Useful for locating features such as farms and hills that Here does not have.

    Here maps is a good choice, but it also depends on location. I also use copilot and find it even better than here maps it gives alternate routes but it's not free.

    You could use both depending on usage.

    Here works great for navigation (especially considering offline maps) so I use that.

    Google is good for up to date info around me, so if I want to find a nearby supermarket or specialist service, I use that.

    For pure navigation though I can't recommend Here enough.

    Google maps is superior in database but did a horrible job in navigating. Here is totally the opposite.
