Windows Phone and Windows 10 Mobile users who use HERE Maps have been prompted to download updates for the mapping app this week. However, the problem is that the update is asking them to download an all-new versions of the app that is currently not visible in the Windows Store.
The update would seem to be a good thing at first glance, but the prompt to download the new version that cannot be download is basically disabling HERE Maps. Jere Suikkila of HERE’s social team stated today on Twitter:
“We’re fixing a technical issue hiding our apps from the Store; until then, please use the Windows Maps app”
We will post an update when the all-new HERE maps app is visible once again in the Windows Store. Until then, we would recommend not downloading any HERE Maps updates if you want to keep using it on your phone.
Thanks to everyone for the tips!
