Detailed Toll for Germany and France available

With PTV xServer 2.16 we stabilized the API for detailed toll calculation. Now it is time to publish the corresponding toll data.

We will activate the detailed toll layer for Germany and France on January, 24th 2020 on our Layer Delivery Server (LDS). You have then the possibility to download the detailed toll layers via Content Update Service (CUS).

PTV xServer internet with PTV World City Map 2020.1H will be updated automatically at the same time.
To use the detailed toll in Germany and France on premise you need to follow these steps:

Step 1: Activate the detailed toll download via content update service in you xserver.conf.

core {
     contentupdates {
              content {
                  detailedToll {
                      enabled = true
                      providerNames = [ "here" ]
                      countries = [ ]
                  }
          }
      }
 }

Step 2: Enable the detailed toll calculation in the xserver.conf or in your request.

xroute {
     tollOptions {
     useDetailedToll = true
     }
 }

The detailed toll in Germany and France is released for PTV xServer version 2.16. 
Please be aware that in version 2.15 the parameter useDetailedToll is activated automatically. If you like to use the basic toll you need to set it to false.
