Get Directions - output fail (5 posts)

    Hi there!

    Everything is working fine, except for the 'get directions'- output. So when I click on 'Get Directions' on the marker, the output in Google is for example:

    The location 52.3752124, 4.8958764 to 52.3317196,5.5429906 isn't recognized or something.
    In the settingspage I'm not working with altitudes, lontitudes etc. I just enter an address.

    Is it otherwise possible to disable the 'Get Directions'-feature in general or on the marker?

    Thanks in advance!

    I'm also having this problem. Seems like it would be pretty critical for a mapping plugin to actually be able to map out directions...

    I just pushed 2.4.4. There are a ton of updates here as it jumped from 2.2.5. See http://simplemap-plugin.com/changelog for details

    Directions should work now.

    Thanks for the update. I really like the geolocation addition. Unfortunately, the driving directions are still a little bit wonky.

    They do pull up the address, however if you click on the marker it will give you an error saying the address doesn't exist or it will just give you a general listing of the street without the address information.

    I think it has to do with how you are formatting the location when you pass it over to Google for the driving directions

    You can view the issue here: http://www.google.com/maps?saddr=Holiday,+FL,+34691&daddr=28.2761181,-82.7203323(8206+U.S.+19+Port+Richey+FL+34668+US)&t=m&z=12&geocode=FY4crgEdp34R-ynHNlPz5I3CiDEMq_xM6UGuxA%3BFZZ1rwEdtMkR-w

    Perhaps adding an option to disable the lat/long output in the driving directions would be a good idea. Some addresses may need it but for well-known locations they are probably not necessary.

    Anyway, Kudos on a really nice plugin. We tested like 10 of them yesterday and yours is the only one that actually works.

    The "Directions" link comes up with:

    404. That’s an error.
    The requested URL /maps?saddr=La%20Mesa%2C%20CA&daddr=8401%20La%20Mesa%20Blvd%2C%20La%20Mesa%2C%20CA%2C%2091941%2C%20US was not found on this server. That’s all we know.
    when clicked on.

    Any ideas what's causing this? I can't find any documentation referring the Directions?
