Download: Nokia HERE for Android (Free)Sygic is pricey. Unfortunately, I find Sygic’s voice instructions and directions confusing, taking me on less direct routes and causing me to miss turns.

You can download the app and start driving around for free, but it won’t be long before you need to part with money. You can buy individual continents or countries at a time, but rarely does the price of each dip below $30, even with the sales that come around often. Individual features also cost money, and some require yearly subscriptions. Even after the recent redesign, I find entering an address and searching for businesses to be more awkward than I like (the experience feels more like a dedicated GPS unit or in-car navigation system than a smartphone app).

Nokia PC Suite is closed-source software and is required to access certain aspects of Nokia handsets.

Nokia Ovi Suite allows users to sync contacts, calendar, messages, photos, videos and music with Nokia device.

Alternative voices are available for download at around 40-60MB each, and like the Maps, they’re free.

I haven’t driven with HERE extensively, but from my initial impressions and its excellent price (or lack thereof), it seems like an easy recommendation. The company exclusively makes navigation apps for mobile devices. It’s not part of a larger tech organization, one that sees providing maps as a necessary part of producing a competitive mobile operating system. It also contains detailed maps of areas that certain competitors lack, especially outside of Europe and North America.

It’s not uncommon for software to change, but when it comes to an app that you’re using in the car, it helps not to have to rediscover how to do things.

While Maps downloads all the map data necessary for a trip when starting up, it can’t reroute without a connection to the Internet.

Nokia PC Suite is a software package used to establish an interface between Nokia mobile devices and computers that run Microsoft Windows operating system.
