About HERE Migration

On behalf of HERE we want to share important information regarding the HERE Location Services.

  • HERE Location Services are being retired as of September 30th, 2022 – NEW final extended date March 31, 2023
  • HERE Premium SDK (3.x) will be maintained until December 31st, 2022 – NEW final extended date June 30, 2023

with only critical bug fixes being addressed. Therefore, we suggest that you migrate to the latest API versions prior to the dates above.

Official Announcement

For a full list of APIs affected, please read HERE Product Notification Email.

The HERE Location Services have been redesigned from scratch and now have:

  • A consistent and aligned API specification across all services
  • A streamlined architecture for better performance
  • Sharing HERE map data across all services
  • More secure authentication and authorization
  • Fresher map content through higher map update frequency
  • Faster availability of new regions (e.g., such as the recently integrated high detail map of Japan)

The following location services are currently in maintenance mode, but their successors are not yet released; therefore, they will be retired after March 31, 2023 (exact retirement dates are not yet determined). HERE ensures that you will have sufficient time for the upgrade once the new service versions are available. Please keep an eye out for further announcements regarding the availability of the new service versions for:

  • HERE Map Tile API v2
  • Batch Geocoder API v6

The following location service is not yet scheduled for retirement and does not have a direct successor planned, but it is in maintenance mode. Therefore, we recommend you consider if the JavaScript v.3.1 or the soon-to-be-released Raster Tile API v3 may suit your use case in place of:

  • HERE Map Image API v1


During the migration, you might identify that you still use AppID and AppCode for Authentications. These credentials must be replaced as soon as possible to use the latest APIs.

If you are impacted by that, please send an email to here(at) with following information:

  • AppID
  • Application

We will then provide you with new credentials.
