Detailed Toll Update for Montenegro

We activated the updated detailed toll layers for Montenegro, referenced to

                   PTV Europe / World City Map Premium 2021.2H,

on our Layer Delivery Server (LDS). Now, it is possible to download the detailed toll layers via Content Update Service (CUS).

 

Using detailed toll on xServer internet and xServer from version 2.22:

The default toll calculation changed to useDetailedToll = true in the xserver.conf. That means that you get the detailed toll automatically, when requesting toll in the route calculation.

 

Information for xServer from version 2.18 to 2.21:

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 is released for PTV xServer from version 2.18.  
Please be aware that from version 2.22 the parameter useDetailedToll is activated automatically. If you like to use the basic toll you need to set it to false.
