Q.How frequently are the maps updated on plotaroute?

OpenStreetMap

Our OpenStreetMap (OSM) maps our continually updated on a drip-feed basis from the master OSM dataset, but they may take up to 3-4 days to refresh on your device, as the map tiles are cached by your browser. Clearing your browser's cache would result in a fresh set of map tiles being requested.

Please note, map updates will take longer to apply to the routing engine - see our FAQ on routing updates for more details on this.

Google Maps

Google doesn't publish any details about how quickly map updates are applied, but we understand there is a continuous ongoing programme of updates.
