Downloaded Navigation Maps from Phone Storage to External SD Card Storage

On my Lumia 1520 (32GB version) I use a 64GB External SD Card for storage of downloaded apps, music, photo's and movies. Recently I downloaded and installed the programms and all the maps for Nokia Here Drive (complete maps of Europe) and CoPilot GSP (with all Europe Maps). I hoped the maps where stored on the SD Card automatically but they are not. I now 'only' have, next to all installed apps, like 2,06GB internal storage space left. I know this could be enough but nonetheless I'm wondering if it is possible to store the maps of both applications on the external SD card rather than on phone storage and if the programms will still work correctly afterwards. On android devices i'm used to that it works like that. The navigation programm is installed on phone memory and the maps are simply stored on the external sd card.

Can this be done and if so, how?

The Lumia Storage Check Beta app can do it - that would take care of the HERE Drive maps at least, but you would have to erase them from the phone, go into that app and download them from there to the SD card. If said app doesn't show in the store it can be acquired via the SysApp Pusher app.

If the other one is an external app then moving it via Storage Sense should suffice as it copies the program itself+its data. *requires WP8.1
