Is it just me or is the 'follow routes' feature not working?

Just trying to plot some routes for next week, but the follow roads feature seems to be out of action.

There’s a daily quota because of Google’s charging model.

I think I remember reading that it's a rolling 24 hour, rather than resetting at midnight, so if if's been used up mostly later in the day today, then still might not be available early hours

Sadly I have to occasionally resort to mapometer, but only after trying Fetch first

Thx for explaining that Diogenes. I’d noticed it was usually unavailable in the evenings but figured it was because the site was busy doing something else.

I have noticed recently you can't seem to use it earlier in the day whereas previously it was OK until later in the day.

Gus that would make sense

I use runnermaps.nl it's just something I'm used to. You can export a gpx into a Fetch route if you want. It is simply that I find the Fetch tool a lot more awkward to use on an ipad.

Got something to say?
