To ensure a smooth transition, we would like to let you know that PTV Group will partly be discontinuing the add-on product “Traffic Info Loader” as of 31st of December 2019 (details see below).

As per 31st of December 2019, the PTV xServer add-on module Traffic Info Loader (TIL) will no longer be available to potential customers of PTV xServer.
