HERE Mobile SDKs

Integrate location features into your apps with online/offline capabilities, beautiful pre-built UIs and personalization options

Enhance apps with rich maps and location context

Consumers and businesses today demand smart, immersive apps to help them move in more efficient ways.

By integrating HERE Mobile SDKs into your apps, you can give users advanced location services that support their journeys: truck routing, in-car navigation, a map designed for fleets, historical traffic patterns and beyond.

Available for both iOS and Android, HERE Mobile SDKs are available in two versions. The Starter Edition provides a quick way to integrate online-only location features into your apps. The Premium Edition provides everything found in the Starter Edition, plus access to vector-based map data, offline capabilities and other location features such as speed limits and traffic information.


Features and Capabilities
Feature Description

Provide just-in-time navigation

Just-in-time navigational instructions with visual and audible notifications, available for a variety of transport modes. Enhance the journey with dynamic information such as signposts and lanes.

Offline mode for seamless navigation

Allow users to browse maps, look for places and navigate to a location – even without a data connection. A hybrid engine renders vector map data directly on the device.

Vector maps available worldwide

Available in over 190 countries and 60 languages, HERE vector maps are small in data size. This minimizes latency and provides fast response times, while still scaling to a high degree of fidelity.

Various styles and schemes

Use maps specifically designed for mobile environments that come in a variety of schemes: normal, terrain, pedestrian, transit, traffic, navigation and more.

User Interface Templates

Reduce development time by customizing UI controls such as colors and dimensions, and refine behavior such as logic, flow and subcomponents.

Map customization

Easily highlight important objects on a map by changing colors and icons, as well as edit properties of map objects such as buildings, roads and land.

Electronic Horizon for mobile

Translate map information with detailed road characteristics into actionable data – right on a mobile device. Provide meaningful insights into the road ahead, including curvature, approaching stop signs, speed limits and more.

3D iconic landmarks

Place 3D objects on rendered maps and let users explore landmarks and surroundings before they start their journey.

Advanced Fleet Telematics features

Integrate advanced custom locations, data sets and toll cost calculations into your apps with our Fleet Telematics services, which are seamlessly integrated into the HERE Mobile SDK.
