Prepare the device


By this point, you have a license to send data to the Tracking API. Now we need to set up a device to actually send the data.

You have several options depending on what kind of device you want to use.

NOTE: Even if a device has a license installed, it cannot send data to the Tracking API until the device is claimed by an end user (see Claiming ownership of a device).

Android app

As a fast way for evaluating the Tracking API, download the HERE Tracker Android app from the Google Play Store. It acts like a 'Virtual Tracker' emulating an IoT device and sending its location data and related information to the Tracking backend via the Tracking API. The app can be configured to with WLAN, BLE, Cell, GPS or any combination of technologies for getting its location information.

  • Download
  • Launch
  • Enter license

NOTE: HERE Tracking Android app should be used for evaluation and testing purposes only. It is not intended to replace a real IoT Tracker device.

Use HERE Tracking device firmware C library

Tracking API Client C Library enables you to securely connect devices with the Tracking API.

Follow the instructions in the project to install and use the sample application.

Use the Tracking ingestion APIs

You may build your own tracker firmware that collects telemetry data and then you use Tracking ingestion APIs to upload your ingestion data to the Tracking API.

HERE Trackers

HERE has partnered with tracker manufacturers for automotive, industrial and other use-cases. You can easily add new tracking devices using pre-configured HERE Tracking firmware. You can choose one of these devices:

  • HERE LTE Tracker
  • HERE Premium Tracker
