HERE suite of location services are the  best out there, and we all know it. HERE range recently got updated with a blue theme, previously it matched your theme color. Now it is all B, as in blue and better. Here Drive got updated to 4.0.5399.0 a strange no. to put up instead of just 4.0.540. Lets us see what is new.

Now you can set the time interval to update the traffic into from 5-30 minutes and also hide the updates which is not going to affect your route.

Another update is find my car, this is really interesting as it allows you to locate your car while leaving it and go where ever you want and what ever you want to do, and when its time to go back, it will direct you to where you left your car. Pretty cool isn’t.

That is Temple Tower & Periyar Building in 3D view. If you happen to live in Chennai, India you’ll know this place. 3D maps is super cool!

Okay that is all new in HERE Drive, let us see about HERE Explore which is right now in beta.

See HERE suite is fully in blue. If you see your theme color there, then it means you are having the old version.

Now all HERE suite services has collections included in it. Collections are as the name implies collections of your favourite places.

HERE Explorer lets you explorer the places around you using Nokia’s LiveSite. It shows the POI nearby.

If you search in the web its giving error right now, but works well in the phone. Update and enjoy the new features HERE has to offer. It now also has a Credits page under About which states all those who are behind where HERE is here today.
