==Important about Maps credentials==
+
Nokia provides several services options within the Maps API offering. The service is free to use, but  you must obtain and use authentication and authorization credentials to use the services. Please read the
 
+
[http://developer.here.net/terms_conditions Terms and Conditions] and check the [http://developer.here.net/web/guest/plans Pricing Plans page]  to decide which business model best fits your needs. Authentication requires unique Maps API credentials, namely an AppId and a token. You can get these credentials free for free following the instructions [http://developer.here.net/docs/maps_js/topics/credentials.html#acquiring-credentials here]
With Ovi Maps API you can start without having any credentials given, but you might face a performance gap. In order to get the full potential out of the
+
offering, you must get the credentials that authenticate your application against the Services. Please read through the Location API.
+
 
+
For more information on how to obtain the credentials, please start with the  Ovi Maps API Developers Guide section "Acquiring API credentials"
