    Actually HERE maps and Bing maps are the same...
    Try downloading new maps in HERE maps or HERE drive+....

    Also try downloading from local inbuilt client "maps"....
    You can see that you are directed to same settings page and also you should be able to see same set of "installed maps"


    And a tip: Use the lumia storage check app to change the location where maps are stored to SD card, that should be of some help.
    This not true


    If you type in this address you will see TWO different locations

    7595 Walton Rd Walton Hills, OH 44146 USA

    Bing Maps has the incorrect address
    HERE maps has the accurate address. I performed this test on WP 8.1 using the 2 separate apps. I have downloaded the state map (ohio)


    ALSO:
    If you use the web-browser you will see the exact same IN-ACCURACY.

    here are the links for verification

    HERE: 7595 Walton Rd Walton Hills, OH 44146 USA
    HERE - City and Country Maps - Driving Directions - Satellite Views - Routes

    I like the new Bing/Microsoft maps better in terms of design and function. Today however Bing maps combined with copilot lead me directly into an ally. When I tried Here maps and Drive it got me to my destination just fine. Still I'll probably keep giving the default Bing a change but copilot is gone.

    I deleted Here Maps from my phone after the 8.1 update. I really only kept Here Maps because of the indoor navigation in malls and other places. Bing maps in 8.1 was updated to include indoor navigation so I have no need for Here Maps anymore. The Here Maps UI was also a bit terrible.

    Bing maps along with Waze (even though I hate that they were bought by Elgoog) makes my mapping and navigation complete. I still have Drive+ on my phone for longer road trips when I need to download maps to the phone but for around town navigation with traffic support, Waze takes the cake.

    Does the new Maps on 8.1 have favorites and/or link to your Bing account? My #1 gripe with Maps on my WP8 is the lack of favorites. HERE has decent collection support which is why I use it. But I'd much rather be able to favorite stuff on Maps and also to do so while logged into my Bing account.

    Waze has always had voice navigation. Cortana even launches it as my standard nav app.

    One thing I notice though is that unlike Here Drive it doesn't speak through my Bluetooth.

    This not true

    It's true, Bing Maps is not as reliable it seems. This puts me in a bind as I "like" Bing Maps better but it seems that Here is just far more advanced in mapping technology.

    I am using the maps that come with WP 8.1 I don't even have Here maps installed. The native maps integrate really well with Cortana and the rest of the OS. For navigation, the stock maps app can launch Here drive, which suits me fine.

    I have manually migrated most of the favourites to the stock Maps app

    Do any of you do offline gps functions with your phones like routing, tracking, waypoints etc and have applications to recommend?

    I find MAPS (built in 8.1) is always more accurate than HERE Maps for Canadian addresses, so i stick with MS Maps App

    I noticed this problem too. Never had a problem with WP8.0 but after updating to WP8.1, Waze has issues with Bluetooth connectivity.

    I've noticed that if I already had Waze running and then connect to my Bluetooth radio, Waze will still speak directions though the phone's speaker. If you shut down Waze and restart it, it will connect through Bluetooth. So, I have to connect to my Bluetooth before starting Waze.

    I have a BIG problem with BOTH Nokia HERE AND Bing maps...... Neither one can display my correct address at home OR at work. So what good are they, and how can I depend on either of these to find an exact location?
    And here's the real kicker; google maps on my girlfriend's iPhone shows the correct address. Grrrr

    Here's my thread on the issue (with screenshots!)

    I find waze to be a serious battery killer. Way more than Here. So I deleted it.

    It was but last update fixed it for me. I still prefer Navigon. MapQuest is pretty good too.
