# Profile mode

Summary of capabilities and limitations for this mode:
+ Unlimited Region
+ Matrix Sizes up to 10,000 x 10,000
- No Custom Options
- No Time Awareness (including Live Traffic)

Given a list of origins and a list of destinations, the service computes the fastest travel times or distances between every pair of origin and destination. These results make up the entries of the routing matrix.

This section refers to calculating matrices with routes of arbitrary length, using one of the supported profiles. If you want to define custom options, see Flexible mode.

The special variant world needs to be set as region definition. No additional request options or departure time can provided except for matrixAttributes. profile uses departureTime=any, with the additional limitation that no long-term road closures are applied.

For a tutorial on how to formulate a request, see Calculate in Profile mode.
