Online Route Planners
« on: May 25, 2018, 06:20:14 pm »
It seems that many online route planners will be going tits up soon. Google are implementing and charging for an API key.
I had an email from Tyre/MyRouteApp as follows (linguistic errors included)

 
Many route planners will discontinue!
Many current route planners that are based on Google Maps have been discontinued or will soon be discontinued. This is because from 11 June Google Maps will no longer function without the API key and an API key just costs to far much money. Tyre will keep on going, but without Google Maps, the Tyre programmer is currently working day and night to implement a different map service.
 
MyRoute-app will continue!
For MyRoute-app this does not pose as a problem, since right from the beginning we have had a professional and legal Google Maps API key. This in combination with the official map services of TomTom and Here (Garmin) as well as including map layers of OpenStreetMap, Michelin and Street view, makes it a pleasure to plan and share your travels with MyRoute-app.


We will just have to wait and see what form it takes after the 11th June.

It doesn't apply to the public just websites that use Google Maps as an overlay. So it shouldn't affect you and me  ;)
