HERE Map Tile API v2 deprecation

HERE Map Tile API v2 is deprecated, meaning no longer commercially available to new customers and renewals. Map update frequency is reduced to "monthly". If you want to take advantage of new functionalities, you will have to upgrade to the successor product HERE Raster Tile API v3 or a client-side rendering product HERE Vector Tile API v2. updates require your reset to "System status" and "Maintenance" notification settings

Service/API names listed under Workspace have been updated to more directly reflect the specific APIs they represent as opposed to the read/write operations they support. These updates require that you reset your notification settings for System status and Maintenance notifications because the service names are now different. Go to, find your Profile in the upper right hand corner, click on System status and select the notifications you wish to receive. Do the same for Maintenance notifications.
