EASY Expenses - Moving to HERE Maps

Date: 16 October 2019

From now onwards the distance for all new routes claimed in EASY expenses will be calculated using HERE Maps. This was previously Google maps. 

Existing route distances are routinely checked and updated automatically by EASY every six months. From now on EASY will check and update the distance using HERE Maps. This check ensures distances take account of any changes to road layout, priorities and any new roads. 

There should be minimal impact on journey routes and journey route maps will continue to be visible within EASY. 

The distance calculation continues to be based on the recommended route and in these cases where there is any variance to the actual length of your journey, you could choose to override the mileage calculated when claiming.

  • Summary:

    EASY expenses now use HERE Maps rather than Google Maps.
