    Any recommendations? Here Drive+ had turn-by-turn GPS navigation for FREE. But it doesn't work on Windows 10 anymore. Are there any other free alternatives? Ones that don't use an internet connection, preferably.

    The official Microsoft maps app is the best way to go. It has the same downloadable maps feature.

    Microsoft will continue to use HERE Maps data but many questions remain | Windows Central

    FWIW, Maps on W10M has turn by turn with voice and draws from the HERE database for its mapping. Yes you can download the same mapping data as HERE for offline nav with Maps. Also in W10M you can save maps to SD card.

    You cannot download voicepacks to get a nav voice distinct from system voice.

    You can import HERE Collections to Maps Favorites in the latest versions of Maps.

    Maps works fine. But without traffic in the nav screen, it's a big loss. Tried a couple of the others, but they were not use friendly.

    On the bottom of rectangular menu, tap on the icon resembling three layers. Then, turn ON traffic.

    Found it. Maybe it was in the update. Or I just kept missing it. Either way, I'll try it out vs Waze.
