Important message! New SDK version released

Welcome to the dev zone.

Unleash the power of OpenStreetMap (OSM) for your product or service. Our powerful SDK allows you to turn your Mobile and web ideas into reality. It’s easy, it’s cheap, it’s versatile – so what are you waiting for?

The Tour

Get a glimpse at what our SDK can do for you. You’ll be surprised. In a good way. And if you think this is good, wait until you hear about our prices.


Our vector-map engine is second-to-none, if you expect performance, flexibility, and stunning map visuals as well as features galore for your Mobile product.


Your customers will love your tailor-made tablet solutions based on our SDK. Simply because they work great. And look great. As will your solution.

Map customization

Let our map be the canvas for your story. We enable you to make the map look and feel like it is truly part of your product and corporate identity. It's your map, not just any map. Check out our out-of-the-box map styles below for starters.

Routing & Turn-By-Turn Navigation

Rock-solid guidance - on top of OpenStreetMap


Our routing engine architect started building these things ages ago. And he just got better each year. Now he is one of the best in the industry.

Our current engine is his masterpiece. It is quite potent with alternative routes, offline rerouting, multiple travel modes (e-bikes are among them) and many more functionalities being included.

Give it a spin and see for yourself.

Turn-By-Turn Navigation

It doesn't matter, whether you decide to use our routing engine or prefer your own custom route provider (GPX routes). Or whether your service runs online or offline. Our SDK lets your product idea become a reality.

Even more so, as customizable multilingual visual advices and audio advices come as standard.

RealReach™ & Heatmaps

Going way beyond the extra mile.


Ok, so you want to go somewhere within 15 minutes of work. What are your options? You could travel as far as 20 km away, if you took the highway, or just 5 km, if you decided to go downtown.
Our RealReach™ algorithm will compute all of this in an instant at any time (so you don’t have to).


Visualize what is most important to you and your users ‐ crisply and clearly. Which is the area with the most free parking places right now? Or the most restaurants? Or the most people checking in this very moment?

Use your data to create spectacular user experiences on top of your map.

Thank you for your interest in our developer program.

We are in the process of migrating our current SDK to a new and improved SDK. During this transition period, new developer registration will not be accepted and new account creation will not be available. In the meantime, we will continue to support the needs of our existing developers with continued updates and improvements to the current SDK.

We apologize for any inconvenience.
