    After the HERE Drive+ disappear from the store for a while, it came back today. But I was told it is not compatible with my device.

    Anyone got luck to install it?

    Search "here" in the store. There are a few versions of the app, but one of them should be compatible with your 950.

    Exactly! There are 2 "HERE Drive+" with same icon and no indication what is the difference. One of them works!

    I think one is for non-Lumia devices (i.e. BLU Win devices) and the other is for Lumia devices.

    Thanks for the heads up. I've gotten used to the in-built mapping program, though I do miss the Here voices.

    If that's the case, then the implementation is wrong. They should have a single app and it should check for device and OS version and use the appropriate code according to hardware and OS.

    no I think one is for win 8 and one is for win 10... it shouldn't matter what device a person is using...

    Oddly enough, I think it does because this goes back to Nokia owning HERE previously (see MixRadio). I disagree with your statement because I noticed 2 HERE apps in 8.1. When I have tried a non-Lumia, I experienced this for myself with having to install a different one over the one that came with my Lumias in the past, because they didn't work on said device. Now in my app library, I have 2 HERE Drive+, and also two of the Maps too.

    I have tried and you can't install MixRadio on a non-Lumia. Similar situation, so I'm guessing they made another one to work on non-Lumia WP/WMs as well.

    I may be wrong, but I think the difference is in licensing. Way back the two Here Maps/Drive apps came one of two ways- with a worldwide license (all map regions) for mid- to high-end Lumias (e.g. Lumia 9xx, 8xx, etc.), and a single region license (North America, OR Europe, etc.) for the lower-end Lumias (e.g. 5xx) and non-Lumia phones.

    So, in my apps list, I "own" both versions, but one is compatible with my Lumia 520 and Samsung ATIV, and the other is compatible with my Lumia 830, 925, etc.

    This was log ago, since WP 8.1 there are no single country licenses, every Lumia received update to HD+ including 520

    Now if they'd only bring Windows HERE up to speed with the Android version, things would be golden.

    The iOS version is amazing as well! I love HERE maps on my iPhone 6S Plus.

    Yep. Worked perfectly fine with the 830 with charging. Even worked fine with my 920 before I got the 830. Bit the reason I am getting with my xl is akin to right after the 920's release with here

    I do have a usb-c quick car charger on the way

    Installs fine on 950xl but:
    My one register a finger touch a way off on the map.
    Try to touch and hold finger somewhere on the map. The point is selected not there but on 11 o'clock of the finger point.

    Other issue is that you can not toggle of the navigation bar.

    I never reset my phone after my upgrade to Windows 10, so I've continued using the version I had installed on Windows Phone 8.1. Almost every time I open the app for the past 2 months since upgrading, which is almost every morning to check traffic on my way to work, the app goes through a setup like a newly installed app.

    *I have to accept the license agreement again
    *It prompts to download offline maps
    *It tells me there is an update to the voice file (no matter how many times I've let the download and update run in the past)
    *It prompts me to set up my commute (my regular commute is already saved)
    *It resets my setting to play an audio alert for the speed warning (annoying when the app doesn't match the posted street signs)

    It did this all again this morning. When I look up the app in the store, I'm seeing two Here Drive+ entries. One says it is not compatible with my device, and the other says it is already installed (no update available). I'm just curious if deleting and re-installing the app now that it is available in the store again will resolve this issue, or if this is some sort of compatibility issue with Windows 10 mobile. Has anyone else experienced this?


    I'm using a 640 XL for the record.
