Further extension of end-of-life of predecessor versions of HERE Location Service
We have extended the end-of-life of our old, predecessor versions of HERE Location Services until December 31st, 2023, for both, our cloud location services and the Premium SDK.
As previously announced in this blog post, we are phasing out predecessor versions of HERE Location Services. We would like to share that we have extended the end-of-life of our old, predecessor versions of HERE Location Services until December 31st, 2023, for both, our cloud location services and the Premium SDK. This is to ensure you have enough time to technically upgrade your applications with our latest set of HERE Location Services (please refer to appendix).
Who can upgrade later?
If you are using the Multi Reverse Geocoding feature, this will be available based on Geocoding & Search v7 by July 2023.
If you are using our HERE Location Services self-hosting packages, then you may continue to do so for the term of your present contract; but you are hereby reminded that as of December 31st, 2022, HERE is no longer providing technical support and bug fixes for these old versions of HERE Location Services. The last software and map releases have been released in November 2022, based on Q4-2022 software and data. All location services of the new generation Location Services are in the meanwhile commercially available for self-hosting. As an existing customer, you can also consider upgrading to those (please refer to appendix)
As mentioned above, the predecessor HERE Location Services currently available on the HERE Developer Portal and hosted by HERE are now targeted to be retired by December 31st, 2023.
HERE Premium SDK (3.x) is superseded by new HERE SDK 4.x variants. The HERE Premium SDK (3.x) will be continued maintained with monthly map updates and only critical bug fixes (no feature development or enhancements). We are targeting to retire the HERE Premium SDK (3.x) by December 31st, 2023.
Please note: we encourage you to make reasonable efforts to upgrade by this deadline. We will ensure your upgrade experience and support with HERE is as smooth and good as possible. We will carefully monitor the progress. Please reach out to your HERE Partner Manager/HERE Account Executive if you would appreciate technical assistance on upgrading to the latest Location Service releases.
