    Microsoft is replacing here maps and drive+ with it's own mapping system. when i was on build 101040 i had problems get them to install so i tried windows maps as a substitute. windows maps has the same look and feel as here maps and drive. for those of us who are still on wp 8.1 those two apps are still available, but from the looks of it going forward Microsoft intends to combined the two apps into one app under their name.

    same thing happened to me ,
    I can't download lumia camera and other microsoft mobile (lumia apps) apps on my L535,
    I think this is because of up-gradation from previous build where the old store downloaded the apps

    may be the hard reset will fix it in theory, but i havent tested it yet. waiting for the next build !!

    My mistake! I uninstalled Here Drive+ because the "unable to update bug" with the intention of reinstalling and now I find this.

    And the MS Maps app is a poor substitute. No way I'm gonna settle with that crap (in my L640 "no GPS signal")

    Be aware that W10 mobile is still a preview with all kind of bugs and glitches. So if you can not handle this kind of "crap" don't install it.

    That's ok but I think that here applications were gone without a return

    Besides of the problem he faces, Windows 10 maps works well since the latest update two days ago. I find it to be a good substitute for the HERE apps.

    Is there a choice in a contact to "drive to address" in addition to "map this address"? "map to address" alone takes too many steps to get to voice guided directions.

    It doesn't matter what people don't seem to understand is Nokia IS NOT GONE. Microsoft has no say whether or not Nokia releases its maps services to windows phone just like any developer. Anyway, windows maps uses Nokia's maps data anyway.

    It's only missing "My Commute" feature, beside that Windows Maps promises to be a nice substitute to Nokia's Here.

    Windows 10 map actually uses HERE data. They also support turn by turn navigation. Let'sjust wait 4 them improve their apps.

    And for HERE map. There is a trick to get it. First you have to have it before upgrade to preview before installing HERE

    Few screenshot support my post

    The new map from Microsoft sucks big time, it couldn't find it's way out of a paper bag, it freeze's up after just a short time of use and has no class in appearance, features or
    settings compared to Here Maps. Think about it took Nokia a good year or so to get it right, so lets give Microsoft 3-5 years. Until than we have CoPilot that never failed me.

    I don't seem to be having any issues with the maps app in windows 10 mobile preview. I was looking for HERE maps in the store but couldn't find it. So last week, I decided to test out the maps app and compare it to HERE Drive+. I had maps on my Lumia 920 and HERE on my 520. Everything was the same, like literally, except for maybe a 0.5 sec difference between the voices telling you what to do next. The UI looks same, the voices were the same, speed limit warnings the same. It all makes sense because Microsoft is licensing HERE maps now and have made it better by integrating HERE maps and drive+ into one app.

    I agree. The Windows 10 Mobile Maps app is HERE Drive and Here maps rolled into one. It works flawlessly. It might be worth downloading offline maps so it doesn't keep downloading map data on you while using it. Constant data connections like that could be a factor in the app crashing.

    Again, your mileage may vary. I updated to the preview on my one and only Lumia 1520 with a hard reset, and apart from some annoyances like Outlook Mail app losing my email signature, and some instances my start screen gets that Loading... bug (which seems to get fixed by invoking Viber and then exiting out of the app using the back button to the start screen), it's been working pretty great!

    I have download the maps I require from the start but did not do hard reset after loading windows 10 mobile, but the app crash continues for now. Maybe after the next OS update may fix this.

    We all may lose HERE anyway. A conglomerate of German auto manufacturers (BMW, Audi and I think Mercedes) are buying HERE from Nokia.
    That could be why Microsoft is elevating Bing mapping.

    I hope we can still keep it though.

    it's not really a problem.
    Microsoft has license agreement with nokia HERE to use it's data. even another company purchase HERE the deal still continue unless one of the party break it.
    since Microsoft paying for HERE data I don't think they going to reject them. (it's business after all)

    So, does the new MS Map app currently NOT work in the background or is it just me? That's the only thing that makes it worthless for me.

    After factory resetting my lumia 920, Lumia Denim got installed on its own. Now I am searching for HERE Maps and HERE Drive+ but not able to find in store. So I download Maps, but it does not support voice navigation. I have to install another app for that. Is there any other app just like HERE Drive+????

    Very strange, on last build I got both Here. A good free alternative is Waze
