Nokia maps tracking for ups

 

The incredibly useful Pokévision is down indefinitely following Niantic's decision to block third-party Pokémon Go map tools. Luckily, there are plenty of alternatives. From PokéRadar to Trackemon, we've rounded up the best Pokémon Go maps, apps, and trackers to help you catch 'em all.

It's been a while since Pokévision was shut down by developer Niantic, but Pokétrainers have endeavoured to create numerous replacements ever since. The original tool showed nearby creatures on a simple, Google Maps-based layout, cutting out some of the guesswork involved in Pokémon hunting.

Niantic claims Pokévision essentially amounted to cheating, as it gave players an unfair advantage over those using Pokémon Go's built-in tracker – a tracker which, incidentally, was removed in the latest game update because it was so unreliable.

Although Nokia is no longer in the smartphone game , it has remained committed to its other businesses. One of those is its mapping division, which almost six months ago debuted a new Android app capable of giving Google Maps a run for its money. At the same time, Nokia teased the launch of a completely overhauled iOS app, but its development has been shrouded in relative secrecy.

Nokia pulled its first iOS Maps app after admitting things "went horribly wrong," and its developers have had a lot of work to do to make sure it doesn't suffer a repeat this time around. The company believes it's ticked all the requisite boxes as it's now available to download on the App Store. Is it good enough to replace Google Maps or condemn Apple Maps to more misery? We took the chance to preview the app and find out.

Mapping apps can't afford to be too unique or they risk alienating users. Fortunately, this means that if you've ever used Apple Maps or Google Maps (or Here Maps on Android for that matter), you'll know exactly what to do. You will first be asked to create or sign in with a Here account, which you'll need if you intend on downloading maps or saving locations, but after that you're good to go.
