HERE is a maps and navigation service by Nokia Business unit which was previously named Ovi Maps and Nokia Maps.

HERE technologies based on the model of cloud computing (cloud computing), in which the location data and services are stored on a remote server so that users have access to it regardless of the device they use.

HERE boasts that currently 4 out of 5 on a car navigation system that operates in North America and Europe use the service HERE. Also the Garmin navigation service, Yahoo! Maps and Bing Maps are also based on the solution from HERE.
