GET – RSAPI.svc/GetOptimize requests are limited to the URL encoded parameter maximum length. Although this varies by browser, 2048 char is the typical suggested limit for encoding stops in the URL string. Because of the URL length limitation smaller numbers of stops can be optimized.
POST – RSAPI.svc/PostOptimize requests do not have URL length limitations and can accommodate large numbers of stops.
