HERE Android SDK

 

Starter Edition version 3.8:

  • No new features were added in this release

 

Premium Edition version 3.8:

  • Added a new cartographic POI category for EV Charging Stations
  • Added scooter routing as a new beta feature. Scooter routes are optimized for scooter and motorbikes by avoiding highway and having less impact in time-to-arrival than car routes when traveling through an area with high traffic.
  • Added turn-by-turn navigation support (beta) for scooter routes.
  • We support extended maximum zoom level as a beta feature. This is turned off by default. Once turned on, maximum zoom level is extended to zoom level 23.
  • Added the ability to query for the estimated data size of selected area or route before prefetching.
  • Added support for displaying drop shadows on polylines.
  • Added the ability to retrieve the URI of a venue space's icon.

 

Note: This is the last release where offline routing supports on demand map data downloads. Starting from the next release, map data must be downloaded before handed for offline routing to work properly.
