Here maps to use location data
« On:November 21, 2015, 08:47:37 PM »
can we have "Here" maps to use the location data sent thru google maps from other phones,

for example: I got a location shared to my whatsapp by an android user, the person had shared the location, but I could not use that location in "Here" map to navigate!
when I click on the link it opens google map in the internet browser and this won't help me to Navigate to that location when we dont
have Google maps in Z3,
 even SMaps app also is not useful in such cases

Yup, you are right that the Location should open in Here Maps app, while it is opening in a Web browser. As I have seen.

This should be fixed. @Zed Zapped

Dear User,

To open HERE maps, the apps should follow supported AppControl URL type.
Eg:Whatsup or messenger apps should control the url link format which is related to map and convert the URL format to launch HERE maps with AppControl.

Maps team.

Dear User,

The issue should be handled by the apps ,messaging app or whatsup app should convert the url link to the HERE maps link available in Z3 device. Apps team is looking into the issue will update once the issue is fixed.
thanks for reporting issue.

Regards,
Maps team
