Map program HERE Maps has renamed HERE Wego.

In a blog post HERE mean that the old name was too general and too similar to competing mapping software.

The service, which Nokia sold to German automakers a year ago, has also been given new functions.

HERE shows such as taxi-waiting information, the approximate cost and order number.

It only works in selected cities and no Swedish cities are on the list.

The design has also been adjusted in several places and new layout of course applies to all users.

Google s only major consumer mapping rival, HERE, has dropped Maps from its app name in a bold rebranding exercise.

After many hours in the Strategy Boutique, the map apps is now named after the ancient British football chant...

The rebranding reflects HERE s greater emphasis on route planning and directions, with walking, public transport, car sharing and taxi stands, and bike lanes all emphasised, rather than shopping.

HERE WeGo s main UI doesn t look too different from the Here Maps UI, though, and still has a Nearby panel, allowing you to find nearby shops, bars or cashpoints if you want them.

But it isn t half so pushy as money-obsessed Google has always been keen to divert you to commerce.

The app s star attraction, as before, is the ability to download the world s maps for offline use.

This week the folks at HERE Maps have changed the name of their most prominent app, HERE Maps, into HERE WeGo.

This new app is centered on "working out the best way to get to where people want to go."

This is for people who want to navigate their own city as much as it is for people that are visiting a city they've never been to before.

With HERE WeGo, users are invited to type in their destination and are very quickly delivered a variety of routes and means of travel.

This update works with the car sharing group Car2Go, which operates worldwide - and inside the United States in many major cities.

A number of major cities also have taxi information for the user's route, including fare, wait time, and a call button.
