Map Customization Tool

 

 

Routing API

Version 7.2.106

 

  • Added support for BK (Bearing capacity class) regulations in Sweden
  • Added support for weight per Single and Tandem Axle group

 

Fleet Telematics API

Version 2.5.18

 

  • Truck parameters can now change per waypoint
  • New routing parameter avoidAreas to avoid certain geographical areas
  • Routing supports additional vehicle types: bus, taxi, carHOV, pedestrian, delivery, emergencyVehicle, motorcycle, roadTrain, bdouble, bicycle
  • Custom Routing can optionally match overlay geometry onto both directions of multiple digitized roads

 

 

Mobile SDK for IOS 3.12

 

  • Now available for China since HERE finally received the needed government approvals!
  • Exposed information about traffic signs on a route through HERE SDK
  • Implemented route importer as a feature which provides an opportunity to create a custom route object from the route shape, particularly from a list of geo-coordinates (lat, lon)
  • Truck navigation is aligned with routing truck restrictions, and current behavior takes into account truck restriction options PENALIZE_VIOLATIONS. The route is calculated properly, but the user gets a warning that he could be fined
  • POI icons are now easily tappable
  • Implemented possibility to set the map center before map engine initialization. Previously map was always launched in Berlin, and as a result additional unnecessary map data were requested
  • Added support for new iPad Air 3 and iPad Mini 5 (released on March 18)
  • Improved determination of waypoint position, now waypoints are defined by position and street name
  • Implemented caching mechanism for bitmap-based render tiles on low zoom levels
  • Navigation Manager was extended to get indoor position during navigation. Now Navigation Manager gets updates from all sources that provide switchover between indoor and outdoor navigation
  • Map Matcher mechanism has been significantly improved. Main improvements were focused on 4 aggregated cases – corner jumps, rounded corner jumps, parallel roads and tunnels. This feature will be available in HERE SDK as beta feature
  • Now Map Data Prefetcher can be used without Map View initialization
