Hi there,

Just bought HotSpots Pro and setup a paid Google API key and I read somewhere that you mentioned that the free $ 200 / month credit they give you is enough for 25,000 API calls per day but that is found on this webpage of Google's:

https://developers.google.com/maps/previous-pricing?__utma=236542612.1152689164.1497891874.1548109284.1548109284.1&__utmb=236542612.0.10.1548109284&__utmc=236542612&__utmx=-&__utmz=236542612.1548109284.1.1.utmcsr=(direct)|utmccn=(direct)|utmcmd=(none)&__utmv=-&__utmk=159957246&_ga=2.234273758.-1152689164.1497891874

which is outdated pricing, what I seem to find now is:

https://cloud.google.com/maps-platform/pricing/sheet/?__utma=102347093.1152689164.1497891874.1548109284.1548109284.1&__utmb=102347093.0.10.1548109284&__utmc=102347093&__utmx=-&__utmz=102347093.1548109284.1.1.utmcsr=(direct)|utmccn=(direct)|utmcmd=(none)&__utmv=-&__utmk=118761993&_ga=2.252934348.433932784.1548109424-2101419871.1525935552

As always way more complicated to understand :( and it SEEMS to me that the pricing is now roughly 30 times more expensive? [25,000 API calls a day vs 28,000 a month?] or maybe I mis-understood something somewhere...

Please see the links above and let me know if you could WHICH type of call(s) HotSpots Pro is doing:

Mobile Native Static Maps, Mobile Native Dynamic Maps, Embed, Embed Advanced, Static Maps, Dynamic Maps, Static Street View, Dynamic Street View?

I haven't yet gone through all of the options but I intend to turn off or not turn on Street View mode in HotSpots Pro [hoping I can anyways] so those last 2 probably won't apply but I'd love to use the Directions feature if possible (i.e. if it doesn't cost me much or anything)...

Thank you for the clarification,
Cheers,

M.

P.S.: In light of this new pricing and in general, when are you planning on implementing OpenStreetmaps, Bing, Mapbox, etc
