PTV xServer internet update – PTV World City Map Cluster with API Version 2

We would like to inform you that we plan to perform maintenance on the PTV xServer 2 cluster with PTV World City Map [Here] on December 7th, 2020 and December 16th 2020.

The following tasks will be completed in the scope of this maintenance:

  • December 7th, 2020: PTV xServer update to PTV xServer 2.21
  • December 16th 2020: Change of configuration for toll calculation
    We will change the default toll calculation to “Detailed Toll”. That means that you get the detailed toll automatically, when requesting toll in the route calculation. We can do this step, because the coverage of detailed toll now has reached the level of the basic toll. There is only one exception: If you like to calculate toll in Australia, you have to set the parameter useDetailedToll = false in the request to get still the basic toll for Australia. That is necessary until Australia will be updated with the detailed toll as well.

The test system was updated already, please test your application during the test phase and report any faults immediately.
