To use the GPS function with your device, you will need to use the HERE Maps application. It provides a rich set of features such as navigation, transit options, traffic conditions and views from satellite.

  1. Open the HERE Maps app by tapping on HERE Maps 25x25 .
    • HERE maps will ask for permission to know your location. Tap the Allow button to let HERE Maps know your location.
    If the geolocation icon does not appear at the top of your phone, go to your home screen, tap on the Settings app and tap the button next to Geolocation to enable it. If you are using HERE Maps for the first time, you might need to go outside so the GPS can find you.
  2. HERE Maps will load a map of your location.

  3. Tap the menu button on the upper-right corner of the screen to expand your options: search for places by name, get directions to an address, save places you want to remember or save a snapshot of the map.
  4. As you travel, tap the rounded, green icon at the bottom left corner of the screen to refresh your current location information. This usually happens automatically, except when the GPS can't easily detect your location - when your phone is in your bag or pocket, for example.
