Recent Changes to Driving Route Planner

Many of our visitors have been relying on Driving Route Planner to provide optimized routes for several years. We have offered this as a free service supported by our advertisers. Our system is built on top of services that Google has also provided for free. Starting on July 16, 2018 Google will be charging us a fee for:

  • Every address lookup
  • Driving directions between stops
  • Map generation

Without making changes these fees would add up to thousands of dollars per week and we could no longer afford to host this site. We have made some changes to help reduce our fees and, unfortunately, some of the features you may have valued are no longer available. Here is a summary of what has changed:

  1. The number of stops has been reduced to 23 from 25.
  2. When looking up addresses we only show the city where the address is found (not the detailed address). Generally speaking, if the city is correct you should assume that we can utilize the supplied address in the routing. If the city is not correct, please provide more details in the address (such as street, region, country, postal code, etc.).
  3. We no longer show alternative routes only the fastest route.
  4. The printable map is now static and does not show the stop numbers on the icons.
  5. We also removed support for some advanced features however we are in the process of adding these back. These include:
    • The ability to specify a starting date and time
    • Stop durations
    • The ability to route the addresses as entered (without optimization)

Even with these changes we will be losing money by offering our service and we will need to start charging to use Driving Route Planner in the future.
