Map localization

The API lets you display maps that are localized in various languages with allowances for the differences in specific countries.
For example, you can display a map with labels in English and indicate distances in miles.

To set a language for the map, pass the lang parameter when connecting the API:

  • language — Two-letter language code. Specified in ISO 639-1 format. Sets the language for objects on the map (toponyms and controls).

  • region — Two-letter country code. Specified in ISO 3166-1 format. Determines regional settings, such as measurement units (for indicating distances between objects or driving speeds on a route).


    Distance is shown in miles.
