Headers help drivers understand which app and what part of the app they're using.

Can include:

  • Icon or image (optional), such as app icon
  • Text (one line only – longer text is truncated), typically the title of the screen
  • Refresh button (only on Place List templates)
  • Back button (optional)

Template support

You can use a header in all templates except the Navigation template. In map-based templates, the header appears in the card. Otherwise, it incorporates the optional action strip.


A header must include at least one of the following: text, app icon, or back button.
