could you please help me with the following?:


My company (dutch online supermarket) uses Google Maps API for its website. with the API we are able to calculate the travel time for our transport from store to customer. we have an algoritm with a certain range that uses this information to indicate if a customer can have home delivery or not. what we experience is that travel times change and with change it can be that a customer that could have home delivery cannot anymore. this is strange for the customer. what we are trying to understand is how often Google is updating traveltime information (that is used by the Google MAPS API) and how we can anticipate on this


thanks, Jurgen van Riel, the Netherlands
