How many transactions does brutile need to render a map?

like in bing its  

8 map tiles = 1 map transaction
1 geo code = 1 transaction
1 route = 1 transaction

Thanks in advance!

The amount of tiles you need depends on your screen size and other factors. In most cases a tile is 256x256. So for a screen of 800x600 you need 4 or 5 columns and 3 of 4 rows. So 20 tiles max. But there is also some pre-fetching for tiles outside the extent and other levels, so it is more than that. I can not give a good estimate because many factors are involved.
