    only way to interact with HERE apps is by using the HERE launchers: http://developer.nokia.com/resources...launchers.html

    For custom overlays over Here Maps data you'd have to use the Map-Control that is part of the WP SDK to display them inside your own App. You can add custom elements to it.

    So there is no way to launch HERE maps application and show custom overlay inside it?

    There are no public offering which could be used for this purpose. And as far as I know there are no ways on doing that. Anyway, you can show one POI in the map and launch the map either in Place view or map view for showing it. You could also use the options on sowing POI's from the places with categories etc.

    Or you could implement the maps in your own application and have full control on what is shown in there.
