OK, it's not bad, but it has a few flaws.
The "speeding" indicator is visual, not audio - which is a pain. In Here WeGo, you can set how much over the limit you will allow, and when you reach it, it gives you three "bongs" to let you know. In traffic, that means you don't have to keep one eye on speed limits, one on the speedo, and open your third eye for monitoring traffic; you can just watch the cars and keep up with them, hearing a "slow down" warning instead. You get used to it really fast, and it's a big help.

The voice directions are clear, as are the displayed ones - but the voice is a little "muddy" and if you select the "Loud" option all that appears to happen is she develops a serious lisp making it much harder to hear.

The HUD mode is nice to see, and probably works well at night - but it doesn't work even when overcast in my car - there is nowhere I can put the phone and angle it for the reflection is clearly visible.

The traffic / holdup support looks pretty good!

It doesn't appear to support What Three Words, which is a pain, but not a deal breaker (Maps does, Here WeGo doesn't seem to)

Do I like it? A qualified yes. A bit of work on the voice, and adding audio to the speed warnings and it would be a "YES!"
