Although Here maps is pretty great it does lack severely in some countries; in fact it was non-existent in them, showing absolutely no mapping details at all. Now the folks at Nokia conversations have announced that a huge refresh to the mapping database took place, which most importantly added maps of Israel & Serbia. Also added/refreshed were 133,000 Km of roads in the UK alone (the gif above shows the new roads added/updated).
Because we are committed to extend the coverage of our detailed maps to the whole world, we have added Serbia (including Kosovo) and Israel with this release. You can now search for places and calculate precise routes in these two countries too and soon we will also introduce turn-by-turn navigation with Nokia Drive.
Turn by turn navigation will be available in Serbia and Israel in the upcoming weeks as well.
If I recall correctly one of the few major countries left out of the mapping process as of this update is only Japan.
Thanks for the tip incognito
