Make sure that your users never get lost on your Google maps with the Google Maps Directions Add-on! The extension allows you to add directions to locations, stores, offices or any address in the world. Display the routes with full directions lists and alternative routes visually on Google Maps.
Additionally, when you have multiple markers on your map you can choose to show the shortest route automatically, after the user enters its address in the Ajax AutoComplete control. Starting point, travel mode and a draggable route marker, to change the direction, are only few among the great features packed in the Google Maps Directions Add-on.
If you want to display your maps with directions on a mobile device (iPad/iPhone) they'll perform great thanks to the latest Google API V3!
