API path: /tracking/route/google.


Get route points using Google Directions API.


  • start – (location JSON object) start of route
  • end – (location JSON object) end of route
  • waypoints = [ ${location}, ... ] – (optional) list of transitional points.
  • point_limit – (int. optional. min=2) If specified, the returned route will be simplified to contain this number of points (or less).

Where location described in data types description section.


    "success": true,
    "distance": 13482, // (int) length in meters
    "time": 844,       // (int) duration in seconds
    "list": [ ${location}, ... ], // list of route points
    "key_points": [ ${key_point}, ... ] 

key_points is list of points corresponding to start point, waypoints and end point (in that sequence). Where key_point is JSON object:

    "id": 123,        // (int) index in points 'list'
    "lat": 56.827,    // latitude
    "lng": 60.594296, // longitude
    "distance": 482,  // (int) length of full path from start in meters (0 for start point)
    "time": 144       // (int) duration of full path from start in seconds (0 for start point)


  • 215 (External service error)

        "success": false,
        "status": {
            "code": 215,
            "description": "External service error"
        "errors": [${status}] // one string or nothing

    • OVER_QUERY_LIMIT – indicates the service has received too many requests from your application within the allowed time period.
    • REQUEST_DENIED – indicates that the service denied use of the directions service by your application.
    • UNKNOWN_ERROR – indicates directions request could not be processed due to a server error. The request may succeed if you try again.

        "errors": [${status}] // string
    where status is one of:

    • NOT_FOUND – indicates at least one of the locations specified in the request's origin, destination, or waypoints could not be geocoded.
    • ZERO_RESULTS – indicates no route could be found between the origin and destination.
    • MAX_WAYPOINTS_EXCEEDED – indicates that too many waypoints were provided in the request. The maximum allowed waypoints is 8, plus the origin, and destination. (Google Maps API for Business customers may contain requests with up to 23 waypoints.)
