Get Directions is a responsive map plugin powered by MapQuest. Widget and shortcodes that auto detect mobiles.
the get route bit does not work, just displays an (ugly) map.
Nice try anyway
"Get Directions" is not good at giving directions. I've not actually tried the app yet because I don't know where to get this key that they refer to.
Direction 2. Get a free MapQuest API key from http://developer.mapquest.com/web/products/open
The page at this link is general. You may have to get an account first, but even that is not clear. I made an account by clicking "Manage AppKeys", but all I got was a confirmation email with no substance.
Is an API key the same as an AppKey. I dunno.
There are 21 links on the body of the page, and it's a guess where to go from here. I picked "MapQuest Open Directions API Web Service". It sounded better than the others. But there is nothing on the destination page about getting a key. A few other clicks were equally useless.
Too many developers are in their own world and seem to have trouble relating to first-time visitors into their world.
I gave up for now. If these developer rewrite their instructions to be useful I may try again, but for now I can only rate them minimum.
