You are not doing real time navigation. All the user is doing is generating
a route plan. This will not violate the guidelines. If you had a situation
where you were interfacing with Google maps in real-time, you could be
violating the guidelines. However, you're not doing this.

Hi,
I thought that if Geocoder is legal, the groute will be legal too, but it
seems to be too beautiful to be true...

End of quote.

So it seems, that only solution is to erase the groute and forgot about it
or get the license  from google (anybody willing to try?)...
I read somewhere, that the maps api v3 will support the route generation, so

maybe it'll give some possibility if the license of maps api will allow it.
Greetings, Greg.
