Where does HERE Map store offline maps

Jeff Au

IF any of you uses HERE Map on your SP3, and download maps offline (for use when travelling), do you know where does the app store the offline map? Would like to find out if it's possible to move them to SD and point HERE Map there.

You can change the location where modern apps are installed with this regkey:


By default these are set to:
C:\Program Files\WindowsApps

I think only the Repository one matters. The paths are locked down with system access only, so you'll have to use the advanced tab to reset the permissions to view the files. Setting these regkeys to a SD card is not recommended for performance and resilience reasons. I understand what you're trying to do here, but it may not work out that well. I don't know of a way to redirect local storage for just one app, its all or none.

There are probably other approaches here, but this is the only one I could think of.

Thanks Surfdock. I think I'll just leave it as it is for now since I've not yet downloaded the "whole world". The info you provided is good to know should I go down that path. :p
