Version 1.5.6

• Remove HERE Maps database. Unfortunately, they closed their free API in July. I'm on the lookout for other options, but most charge exorbitantly high prices (e.g. Google, TomTom, Garmin, Sygic) that I cannot afford as a student. OpenStreetMap is still available as I run my own server.
