Routing API Developer's Guide

Requesting a Route from a Location near a Motorway

To request a route starting at a street by a location near a motorway, use the calculateroute service specifying the start location as a street position (waypoint0=street!!poi_location).

In the following example a requested route starts at a location of Berlin Tegel S-Bahn station (52.587854,13.2898107) close to the A111 motorway (Tunnel Tegel). You can avoid to matchg the route start to the motorway if you specify location of the station as a street position.

Note: This example uses a HERE API Key to authenticate your request. For information on other possible options, see Authentication Guide. For examples of how to use the other authentication options with the Routing API, see Authentication Examples.
Figure 1. Example of a route start matched to a street instead of a motorway

If you specify the location of the station as a waypoint position (waypoint0=geo!52.587854,13.2898107) instead of a street position, then the route start is matched to the A111 motorway.
