HERE maps is a well known mapping service and it does come preinstalled on some of the latest Samsung devices running 4.0 or higher ,we have given it a quick test on our One Plus one and so far its been impressive,we have been using HERE maps on Windows Phone for  a long time now too and again its as equally impressive.
