Zurich City - Driving Map

Hi,

Does anyone perhaps have a link to a Zurich City Driving Map?

I find the inter-city of Zurich to be difficult to drive in - a maze of one way streets. If anyone has a a link to a map that list the directions of the streets (one-way, etc.) in Zurich City I would be most grateful.

Thanks!

Err, did you not think to try maps.google.com ? They're usually pretty much spot on, although I don't know Zürich well enough to guarantee it.

Re: Zurich City - Driving Map

Hi, yes I have tried google maps. No it is not that good for the streets in Zurich City. This is why I am asking here.

Here Drive

App. should be available for all platforms, but comes as standard on Windows phone.

Re: Zurich City - Driving Map

What about a navigation system?

That's effectively what Here Drive is (above post).
I now use my phone on a holder, in preference to my GPS navigation - and never need to worry about map updates, as they are always current, and for off-line use, downloaded maps can also be updated (notification or auto).

This is not like Google Maps with directions, but a bona fide satnav system .... for free.

I didn't read your post...
I have Here Maps on my Lumia too but only use it for navigation when walking. For the car I prefer i-Drive.

Here Drive is more satnav specific than Here Maps - the latter being comparable to google maps.

The anomaly being that for IOS (and possibly Android), the app. is called Here Maps, but encompasses Here Drive, within the app., whereas for Lumia (W.8.1 and Denim) Here Drive and Here Maps should be separate apps.

Re: Zurich City - Driving Map

Thanks for the pointer to HERE, I just downloaded it and maps of my area where signal is often lost.

Not sure how useful it is in areas with good signal and hence Google Maps availability, seems definitely to have fewer POIs.

I didn't think there was anything interesting in New Hampshire, anyway.

It probably depends on which platform you're using. Being a Nokia app. it's optimised for Lumia (Windows phone). Under settings there is an option to "Show on map" - not a full list of everything interesting, but things more related to driving and basic needs (petrol, car parks, cashpoints, hospitals, etc).

However the iPhone version I've installed on my iPad doesn't seem to have this under settings.
