Hi, I'm fairly new to using this site, though it comes highly recommended. Apologies for asking three separate questions in one day. No more I promise!

Roughly how often are the maps/routing updated to account for change in the OSM data?

In theory around once a month – updating the routing is a very intensive process (the server has to run non-stop for a couple of days) so it’s not really practical to update it more often.

Over the past few months, though, I’ve been working on a major upgrade to some of the routing algorithms during which I’ve paused the updates. The first version of this is now complete so the routing is once again running on fresh OSM data!
