Why is RouteXL free?
We use the open data of OpenStreetMap, free maps and free software. In return we offer our services for free. For our loyal customers, and also to help contribute to a better environment. Therefore RouteXL is completely free to use for multi-stop routes up to 20 addresses. In case you'd like to use this software for over 20 locations, We'd like to ask you for a small donation to cover our costs.
Why do I have to zoom in to select addresses?
Experience has unfortunately shown that selecting addresses by clicking on the map is not always accurate. The map is very place sensitive. Sometimes one accidentally clicks in the middle of a lake or lawn. The route planner won't find the address and does not work properly. The more you are zoomed out, the more likely that you;miss; your destination.
My addresses are on the wrong location on the map. How can I improve this?
Je kunt via de knop “;Opties”; to choose another geocoding service and set an address suffix. Bijvoorbeeld de geocoder “;Photon”; en de aanvulling “;Nederland”;. You can try other combinations. Test your settings using the search box at the top left. If you type an address, after a few moments a list of search results will appear.
Why is the free version limited to 20 points?
The calculations for finding the optimal route are complex. With more than 20 addresses computing time goes up quite fast. Therefore, we ask for a small contribution if you want to increase the number of addresses. After payment you can put up to 100 addresses in order.
Why do the calculations take so long?
To determine the fastest route, the planner must know all travel times between all addresses. If you have to visit ten locations, we need (including your departure point) 11 x 10 = 110 legs to be routed. That is: 110 routes between two locations. And unfortunately that takes some time.;
How can I help to make it faster?
Make sure that the addresses are correct, and check as much as possible that they are correctly placed on the map. Group addresses that are close together. For example: combine multiple destinations in a single mall together into one address.
I have addresses in Excel. How can I quickly add these?
You can import addresses through the Import button. Copy the addresses in Excel (Ctrl-C) and paste them into the text area (Ctrl-V). Make sure that each address is on one line. E.g. street, zip code, town and country row, for example:
Jan Ligthartstraat 1, 1817 MR Alkmaar, Netherlands
It does not work, I am getting error messages?
Check the internet program (browser) you have. Most problems are unfortunately caused by outdated browsers. Internet Explorer version 6 (IE6) we do not support, IE7 also has issues. Update your browser or use a modern browser like Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome. If that does not solve the errors, please make a report.
