Free and offline city navigation app
Technology has gone a long way in that we no longer need Personal Navigational Devices or PNDs to get around various places. Today, we have the almighty smartphones to do the job of seamless navigation. Various city navigation apps can provide you with an accurate direction. Not only that, but some even work offline. HERE WeGo is one of those. It is a free navigation app that provides turn-by-turn guidance and information about every way to get around. On top of that, it also offers taxi services.
Everything you need to keep moving
HERE WeGo works to get you to your destination with ease. It provides you with a map of your route, complete with live traffic thanks to its millions of users. Like Waze, it provides voiced guidance, so you can stay stress-free behind the wheel. On top of that, you can find places to park, as well as alternate routes.
HERE WeGo is also a handy app to have even if you don’t own a car. As mentioned, the app offers taxi services—so like Uber, you can book a cab. Not only that, but it can help you use other public transit. It offers public transit information for more than 1,300 cities—including New York, San Francisco, London, Berlin, Paris, Milan, Barcelona, Syndey, and more. It provides you with the information you need to go on a subway, metro, bus, trolley, or ferry. From the cost of a ticket to every transfer you have to do, the app will guide you to get you to your destination.
As noted before, HERE WeGo works offline. To do so, you only need to download the map. Unlike Google Maps, however, there is no limit as to how long you can keep the offline copy of the maps. However, HERE WeGo falls short when it comes to customizing the downloaded map. It only has preset areas to download for offline use, so you cannot choose a particular area to save.
Navigate with ease
All in all, HERE WeGo is a handy GPS navigation app to have. Whether you are driving your car, taking public transit, and even going around the city on foot, this app can help. It offers tools that can take you places. The app takes some getting used to since it has little guidance for finding and using its feature. However, once you familiarize yourself with its interface, it can be a great travel buddy that you can carry anywhere.
