FAQs about Here WeGo Android Auto
What are the advantages of using Here WeGo with Android Auto other than other navigation apps?
- Offline Maps. You download by Country, State/Province, etc. For someone who travels quite a bit domestically & internationally, this is a lifesaver.
- At least in my case, I have found that it is as good with Street coverage as Google Maps in India.
- Aesthetics! I find Google Maps too crowded with info while driving.
- Google has enough info on me already. No need to give much more data to them.
Why is Here WeGo navigation special than other navigation apps?
Most people love the fact that it does display a speedometer on AA as opposed to Google Maps (this might be region-based). The traffic information was accurate and closed roads due to accidents were displayed as such.
Not as detailed as Google Maps in providing information (e.g. contacts, operating hours, etc). The satellite view is good but not at the Google Maps level. Overall, happy with the app - until Google Maps sorts out the speedo issue - will be using Here WeGo.
How do we go over half the screen is taken up by app options and how to get rid of it?
On full screen that would be the case until the destination is selected then that disappears. I enable the split screen to counter that when I do have no active directions on. It's one of the irritating things I have to pick up. Hopefully, they will work on that to make options disappear like on other navigation apps!
When I connect my phone to my car (using USB), HereWeGo maps are not available in the apps menu on the car screen. I have to open HereWeGo Maps on the phone before it becomes available. I have already enabled Android Auto in the HereWeGo map. Is this expected behavior? Or do you know a fix?
If I get it wrong, it's only because you didn't include phone details.
If it's Samsung, you likely have the app in the sleep list but removing it from the sleep list or adding it to the do not sleep list may not be enough to prevent an app from being killed while in use in AA. Disable optimizing battery usage will remove an app from the sleep list if already added and also prevent it from being automatically added again and also from being killed or;
Long press the app icon > app info > find the settings there.
What's the best navigation app?
Depends on what you need. In general, I would recommend Waze because of the correct live traffic info, speed radar notifications, etc. If you need the best POI, then Google Maps. If the best free offline navigation, then Here WeGo maps.
