See where you are on a map

If you need to get your bearings, check where you are on a map. You can also explore different cities and countries.

  1. On the start screen, swipe left, and tap HERE Maps iconHERE Maps.

    current position icon shows where you are. If HERE Maps can't find your location, last known position icon shows your last known location.

    If accurate positioning is not possible, a green halo around the location icon shows the general area you might be in. In densely populated areas, the accuracy of the estimate is better, and the green halo is not as wide.

  2. To see your current or last known location, tap my position icon.

    Tip: Trying to get oriented in a new place? When the compass is switched on, the map rotates, so that you can always see which direction you're facing. Tap Rotate map icon.

    The compass has limited accuracy. Electromagnetic fields, metal objects, or other external circumstances may also affect the accuracy of the compass. The compass should always be properly calibrated.

    If the compass needs to be calibrated, follow the instructions on your phone.

    Map coverage varies by country and region.
