Nokia Lumia 520 - HERE Drive and Maps

If I buy a nokia Lumia 520 for its non-phone uses (media player, camera etc), would I be able to also use the HERE drive and map functions?

 

I wouldn't be on a contract.

 

Thanks a lot

Hello, joeboy235.

 

Thank you for posting and welcome to the Nokia Support Discussions!

 

Where are you located? Where did you purchase your phone? Here navigation is currently available in 95 countries. If your country is listed here: http://here.com/help/wp8/drive/coverage then you can use the Here services.

 

Let us know if there's something that you need to verify. :smileyhappy:

If you mean with PAYG SIM in place and data connection disabled there should be no issue if regional mapping downloaded; however you won't get anywhere without a SIM in place as application crashes upon my 620 in such circumstances!

Happy to have helped forum in a small way with a Support Ratio = 37.0

Thanks for all your help!

 

I'm in the UK, and will be putting a PAYG sim in, downloading all the maps from the wifi at home, and then turning the data connection when I go out.

 

Sounds like that will work, which is great!

 

 

 

Thanks again everyone

Just always update your Nokia map HERE set in automatic update. even you have no data connection the GPS always on wherever you go.

Thanks to Nokia for making free.

Lumia 520 only have a HERE license and not the global HERE+ license. That means voice driving navigtion will not work if you use your phone while overseas.
