[B]Q: How do I generate an new app_id and token.[/B]
1) Log in to [url]http://developer.here.com/[/url]
2) Click on NEW APP.
3) Once an app_id and token pair is generated, click on the name of your app to see the details, you should see something like:
[B]App ID:[/B] zqq7NvxXXXXXXXk6zgAE
The token is the longer string of the two, the app_id is the shorter string do not use the name of the app.
You should generate a new app id for each application you create.
[B]Q: Where is the reference documentation for this API ?[/B]

[B]Q: What is the relationship between the HERE Map API and the Ovi Map API?[/B]
Version 1.0 of the HERE Map API used the old Ovi branding, the HERE Map API has superseded this.
To upgrade from the Ovi Maps API to the HERE Maps, two changes are required in the code:
1) Replace [url]http://api.maps.ovi.com/jsl.js[/url] with [url]http://api.maps.nokia.com/2.2.4/jsl.js[/url] because the API is hosted in a different domain.
2) Replace all instances of ovi.mapsapi with nokia.maps since the objects are created in a different namespace.
Note the version number is now part of the URL for the JS Library, this will update as further releases occur
