- Isoline range was increased to 800km and 32400 seconds (9 hours).
- Optimized isoline calculation in Australia by considering also second and third most important roads after highway to address regional specifics of the road network density.
- New category “Vaping Store” (pds category: 600-6900-0108) mapped to “shop” in Find Places category.
- New category Cigar and Tobacco Shop (pds category: 600-6900-0107) mapped to Find Places category “Shop”.
Fleet Telematics API
- Toll cost and environmental zone access can be fuel type dependent, so calculateroute.json got a parameter &fuelType=petrol/diesel/lng/lpg/cng/ethanol/propane/hydrogen/electric
- Basic support for bicycle routing (mode=bicycle instead of car or pedestrian). calculateroute response contains travel time and length per route leg.
- Routing can return maneuver instructions either in text or html format (parameter &instructionFormat=text/html).
- Routing can return additional maneuver information (parameter &maneuverAttributes=direction,action)
The following services had new releases with minor changes:
