Routing API v7 Developer's Guide

Request a Truck Route

To calculate directions for trucks between two locations using the calculateroute service, include in the request the following:

  • your authentication credentials, apiKey or app_id and app_code if you are using the app_id/app_code authentication (see Acquiring Credentials)
  • the start (waypoint0) and destination (waypoint1 in case of no intermediate location) waypoints
  • fastest;truck for routing mode and indication whether to optimize the routing for traffic conditions or not
  • and truck profile parameters (see Truck Profile)

This example requests a route for a truck that weighs 30.5 tons, is 4.25 meters high and has a cargo that is harmful to water. The route uses a speed profile for heavy trucks and is not optimized for current traffic conditions. Waypoints are specified by latitude and longitude using the geo! string value.

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 v7, see Authentication Examples.
