    I live in a pretty obscure country, and upon learning that HERE won't be with us any more after installing wm10 OTA, i tried out the stock maps app, and it worked perfectly for a half hour test, finding even the obscure pedestrian routes in my city.
    which obscure country is this?

    Slovenia.

    Obscure in a sense that it's so small noone bothers to bring us Groove Music Pass, Cortana et al. because the market is so small.

    LiveSight does sound cool, though I never used it. For the record, I find the driving directions have improved over the years (USA, East Coast) and Maps is generally quite good. I used to joke that apparently HERE directions were being created by geeks working in China. They were often laughably bad even on major highways. My wife once was routed around and around in circles making her go through the same toll booth twice. Traffic cameras on Maps is quite useful to assess both traffic and weather conditions. They have one at most major choke points on the major highway commute route near here.

    But HERE and the new Maps are very accurate here. Everything works well, even Livesight with preloaded maps :)

    It's not that obscure a country. As for some services not being available, that happens to 90% of the countries. Cortana is only available in 10 countries - and there are over 190.

    One question: How do we migrate our HERE favourites? :(

    Been on HERE since forever through my Nokia N95, N86, N8, Lumia 920 and now 950. Have a ton of saved places in about 10 countries, can't afford to start all over again in a new map app even if it has voice navigation and offline maps.
    Still waiting for an answer and I hope there is one!

    well After the update 4.1601.10150.0 - the app shows some improvement. Haven't tried it yet for navigating, but the location spotting with gps is much accurate and hope to check the navigation functionality tomorrow.

    Well not sure if you tried this yet and if you have previously used a MS account to sign in to HERE. Then it should sync, if not, you will have to manually add new favorites while you still can, press and hold, save favorite, etc... Sucks i know :)

    Did they ever fix it so that it uses the compass to tell which direction you're facing? That's pretty basic functionality that really should be working by now.

    yuh, for the moment the map always loads north up. if you rotate the map using 2 fingers, then the compass icon changes accordingly
