Under the hood

HERE Navigation On-Demand is an open platform. It integrates multiple HERE location technology products to an end-to-end application including a configurable user interface (UX), which is delivered to OEMs as SaaS. Despite being deployable off-the-shelf, OEMs can easily extend its functional scope through an SDK.

A microservice-based architecture ensures that functionality and UX can be gradually made accessible to its client software over-the-air at any stage of the vehicle lifecycle. Smart caching allows for off-line availability in the car. When combined with HERE Open Location Platform, OEMs profit from an end-to-end environment facilitating location-based connected services – from data ingest to the deployment of ready-to-use functionality OTA.



HERE Navigation On-Demand is the world’s first SaaS solution for vehicle navigation and connected services, delivering an “always-fresh” experience to drivers.
