On June 3, 2019, a new Asset Tracking plan was launched on Google Maps Platform. This plan is only available for customers with large fleets (thousands of assets) and a specific use case. Please Contact Sales if you are interested in this plan.
This page explains how the Asset Tracking plan works.
The following APIs are covered under the Google Maps Platform Asset Tracking plan:
- Geocoding API
- Directions API
- Geolocation API
- Elevation API
- Roads API (including Speed Limits)
- Time Zone API
- Distance Matrix API
- Maps Static API
- Street View API
Billing on this plan is set up as a fixed monthly fee which is attached to your billing account. This will result in a new SKU appearing in your developer console usage reports: Maps Monthly Fee. This fee is prorated per day and shown in your usage graph. It appears when you group both by "projects" or "SKUs" in your usage report, since the monthly payment fee is attached to your billing account and not a specific project.
Usage per API is still shown in your usage reports. The covered APIs mentioned above will have a price of zero, and will be covered by the fixed monthly fee. The APIs not covered (Places API) will be charged on a pay-as-you-go basis. For more details check the "Places Services Pricing" section included in your contract.
The plan you subscribed to defines which quota limits you get. In order to check what limits are eligible for your project, take a look at the "Maps Asset Tracking Subscription Plan Tiers" section of your contract. You will find in the table the corresponding QPS uplift included.
During the initial setup of your project we have provisioned the included QPS on both the Directions API, and Geocoding API. If you need this QPS uplift to be added to any other APIs covered by the Google Maps Platform Asset Tracking plan, please contact technical support.
If you need more than the included QPS, please contact your account manager to arrange moving to a higher subscription plan.
For any urgent temporary quota uplift requests contact technical support.
