    but hell no i am 100000000% sure the map data is not the same,,,
    i was using navigation and i entred some street in my neigbourhood, and what do you think,,,,,
    cant find it i tried some other street also same problem could not find .. i went to maps on my laptop and same thing,,
    i thought maybe here map dats isnt as good as i thought,, but hey i logged into here maps website and what you think??
    i found those Streets with no problem at all...

    1 - Which phone?
    2 - Which win10 build?
    3 - are you here for blaming or sharing experiences and looking for solutions? Reading once, twice, etc. it seems you are the problem. IMHO.

    So, let's start from beginning . Go to top... Which phone? etc.

    well he isnt wrong either, map data on windows severely lacks compared to google, some places more than others, if you ever tried to input a destination on uber app you know it is pretty much useless, that app taps into some old bing maps data that has nothing on your city other than the local airport, you try that on google maps and even your house could be a known place

    thats just business, what do you think it means when they say "we use here maps data" it can go from using just the plain maps imagery or all the satellite images, landmarks, street names, points of interests etc, my guess is they arent getting enough of that "here maps data" so thats why we get the discrepancy

    im sorry this may not be the answer you wanted but thats how it is here

    IMO the Windows/Microsoft maps app is way more reliable than the Here/Nokia one. That's been my experience in NYC.

    It happened to me too since 01 July 2016. All my POIs in Thailand went back to something like 4 years ago.
    I typed a search and it showed results from tripadviser in other countries, not my city.

    I am serious with this issue.

    Must be correlated with discontinuation of Here.

    Even transit doesn't work in win maps, i went back to 8.1.it works smooth as butter and fast . Even the same happens on bing maps website on pc. Literally....please Microsoft...dont waste our patience and your money, but the licensing for google maps and incorporate with your maps application....

    The whole Here packet was dismissed months ago, it belongs to Nokia and Nokia sold it to a luxury car group.
    So MS released Maps.

    For now, I use Waze :D

    Simple, find a older version ( xap file ) and install it manualy. Sources can be found on xda developers. The only thing that you need to ignore is the update from the store.
