    I'm prepping for a trip and decided to revisit using Nokia HERE and Google Maps. To my amazement, great strides have been made in the mobile versions of these apps, which are easily accessible via the stock BB10 browser. Once I saved the link to the Home Screen, using the Add to Home Screen side menu item, I had a quick way to access them as if they were just apps.

    Nokia HERE

    Directions - directions to get from A to B, via by car, foot, or public transport; no quick way to switch directions but easy enough to set A and B from most recent searches
    Collections - personal saved places of interest
    Save a map area
    About - nice mention of BlackBerry 10... "Platforms it works on... Blackberry 10.0+ (Experimental)"
    Layers - only Map or Satellite view

    Google Maps

    Directions - directions to get from A to B, via car, public transport, foot, and bicycle; quick way to switch direction; options to avoid highways and/or toll roads
    My Places - personal saved places of interest
    No save map area
    Layers - Satellite, Traffic, Transit and Bicycling

    Of course, you can always sideload the Google Maps app via Snap. I found the mobile Google Maps to load faster and make better use of the screen space of the Q10.

    I heard something about HERE maps coming to Android. There's some sort of a Samsung exclusive in place initially, but afterwards, it should be available to other OEMs too. When that happens, considering Amazon's map services are powered by Nokia I wonder what the likelihood will be of the app being made available in the Amazon app store.

    BTW: You don't have to open the browser if you want to use Nokia Here maps:

    Or maybe using this App: MapBrowser - BlackBerry World

    Open Street Map, Google Maps and Nokia Here - all in a single app and also in a separate Window. No need to have it running in a separate Tab in the Browser. Just get to the Buttons at the top of the screen using a swipe and select the service you need. Without address bar at the bottom. Fullscreen.
