How do I get a refund?
As Apple and Google are handling all financial transactions, you will have to reach out to their specific support teams. Look for their contact information in the receipt email you received.
I changed phone, how do I log in into my account?
There are no accounts in Droppath. Make sure you kept the same Apple ID account or Google account on your new phone. Please click on Restore Purchases to reflect your existing subscription and you should be set. Note that no data syncs between devices.
Will purchasing a subscription cancel my trial period?
Any unused portion of a free trial period, if offered, will be forfeited when the user purchases a subscription to that publication, where applicable.


Why do you only offer subscriptions?
Computing and optimizing itinaries depends on up-to-date map data and uses server ressources. A subscription will cover these expenses as you use them.
Can I use my subscription on multiple devices?
Subscriptions will work for all devices configured to use the same Apple Id or Google Play account. A separate subscription is required for each platform: iOS or Android.
What are daily optimization credits?
To avoid abuse and fair use of computer ressources, each subscriber is provided with 2000 optimization credits on a daily basis at midnight.
Users can perform actions using those credits: reorder destinations in the optimal order (for fastest routing) or fetch driving directions. Each of these cost one (1) credit per destination. For example: fetching directions for a route with 50 destinations will cost 50 credits.
The remaining credit count is displayed in the app. The estimated cost is provided before the action is performed.
Most user won't hit the daily limit but if you do, you will simply have to wait until midnight to get more credits.
What was Route Plus?
Route Plus was a one-time purchase available before October 2019. It has since been discontinued and all users have been obliged to buy a subscription. As a compensation, complimentary Route Pro service was offered until April 30th 2020. This change was necessary to ensure continued service to all Route users. In September 2019, Google introduced pricing on their Google Maps APIs which rendered the one-time price impossible to continue to sustain.
