If your phone has a compass, you can tap the location button in the lower left-hand corner of the app to activate the compass mode in Here Maps. Then the map will rotate to match the compass, meaning if you point the top of your phone due west, the map will point west as well.
Another map view shows satellite images. I had issues with the satellite map loading in places, even over Wi-Fi. Some parts of the map would stay blurry for several seconds before they loaded, and other images never loaded at all.
