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 SDK into your apps, you can give users advanced location services that support their journeys: customized maps, truck routing, in-car navigation, a map designed for fleets, historical traffic patterns and beyond.
Available for both iOS and Android, HERE SDK comes in four editions:
- Lite Edition: quick way to integrate location features and customized maps into applications built for devices with limited ROM capabilities and rendering needs.
- Explore Edition: access to a smooth map experience and highly performant map rendering tailored for high-end devices, with features such as multiple map view instances, controlling draw order of map layers, 3D camera control and integrated tool chain for map customization
- Navigate Edition: access to all the features that come with the Explore Edition plus turn-by-turn navigation capabilities.
- Premium Edition: the most feature rich SDK; provides everything found in the previous packages, plus access to offline capabilities and other location features such as navigation for cars, trucks and pedestrians; electronic horizon, toll cost calculation, advanced data sets like speed limits, inclines, curvature, and more.

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.
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.
