Licensed vs Open

I'm totally confused on the licensed vs open data. We are using the Open directions api, and for one particular route the directions are way off. They go off the highway and have sharp angles. I would like to try the licensed data to see if it's better, as the MQ web site has no issues with this route. If I just change "open" to "www", I get "The AppKey submitted with this request is invalid." Who is allowed to use licensed data? Can I use it on a Basic plan? How do I get a key?

That's odd. I'm not sure how the keys got into that state, but they should be good to go now.

Thanks, it's working now. Unfortunately, I still get the same bad route. Here is the URL I'm using if you want to check:

The licensed version (change open to www) should work much better.

Thanks, the licensed is better. I must have still been using the Open url's when I tested.
