How come there is no VehicleParameter in xTour? In xRoute you can specify vehicle type (car, van, truck ...) is there some other way?

Hello Gasper,

while you may specify each routing parameter of a vehicle in xRoute via the so-called UPM (unified profile mechanism) as a part of CallerContext (more precise CallerCOntextProperty."XMLProfileSnippet") the xTour does not support this kind of API injection.

This means that you have to specify each required routing parameter set as a server-side profile. Once such a server-side profile is available you may refer to it via the DistanceMatrix "profile" name. Ideally a search graph is available on server side (matching the XML profile) so the HighPerformanceRouting may take effect.

Let me know if you need further info,

Best regards Bernd
