Getting a TomTom API Key
Please note that this is an optional step.
By default the TomTom Digital Cockpit SDK has limited navigation functionality. More advanced features like live traffic, long-distance EV routing and map updates are only available after configuring a valid API key.
You can skip this part if you are not interested in these features.
Only after signing TomTom's evaluation agreement authorizations will be granted to your API key and you can experience the full navigation functionality of the TomTom Digital Cockpit SDK.
Please follow the instructions below to obtain the API key and configure it in the SDK's build files.
Registering as a TomTom Developer

Register, and fill out the registration form.

- The API key you get assigned should be used in the TomTom Digital Cockpit SDK, but it must still be authorized by TomTom for the navigation features used by TomTom Digital Cockpit. See also section Evaluation agreement.
You will not get a new API key, but TomTom will grant access to the navigation services for your API key.
