HERE Maps update changelog:

  • Cyprus, Mayotte and Zimbabwe have had their entire maps updated to navigable status, meaning you can now get full turn-by-turn directions across those countries. Meanwhile, there have been significant improvements to the maps for Comoros, Djibouti, Eritrea, Fiji, Gambia, Liberia, Madagascar, Sierra Leone and Somalia.
  • Special attention to how inland water is displayed: ponds, lakes and rivers. More small water features are shown than previously, and we’ve worked to improve the representation of rivers which, of course, can vary in size over the passage of the seasons, making them tricky to map.
  • Public transit lines better matched to the reality of their geography. This transition to accurately tracing the paths of transit lines has now expanded. In this latest update, Kaohsiung, Taipei, Curitiba, Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo and Singapore have had their maps upgraded to better show the path of subway, train and tram lines.
