China & Japan
The Chinese government imposes usage restrictions and requires additional certifications on maps and location data. This also impacts the usage of locartion services. Please contact your account executive for details.
Using location services based on Japanese map data requires additional licensing. Please contact your account executive for details.
Both Chinese and Japanese map content and functions are fully HERE map & service compliant, but have reduced feature sets. Details see below.
Fleet Telematics API China Features
The service is available on endpoint fleet.hereapi.cn. It needs additional entitlement and currently bases solely on China map data. Additional map regions on this endpoint can be made available upon demand.

For custom road changes legal restrictions apply, legal approval might be required, contact your account executive. • WSE Waypoints Sequence (only the calculateroute.json variant, not the findsequence.json variant)
Advanced Data Sets layers
- Most layers are available. http://fleet.hereapi.cn/1/doc/layers.html?region=HKMC&release=latest&app_id=&app_code=
