Frequently asked questions
Why is the price of a poster print cheaper than the price of an A4 format? One would expect the opposite
The answer is related to how you are allowed to use the map. The poster print is for limited non-commercial and a maximum of 10 poster prints.
I don't see this product option for some routes, what's the reason?
- We don't have a contract yet with the provider of data in this region.
- The size of the area needed to cover your route is too large.
I still want another, personalized layout for the print. Can RouteYou provide this?
Yes we can. Please contact sales[at-r.]. Take into account that the price will be much higher because we have to put some cartographers on top of this job to tune it to your liking.
Why should I pay for this file/print while the default prints are free?
There are the following reasons
- This covers the royalties due to the mapprovider used to generate these maps
- This covers the cost to generate and store the info on the RouteYou servers
