I dont think that works
I tried your solution, because I too, wanted the marker info to be open when the page initially loads. My client didnt even know it could be clicked. I know this can be done, but it has nothing to do with whether or not directions are displayed. I just want the marker to be clicked open when the page first loads. Can you do that? I tried the solution above and it didnt work. I only had one instance of that code.
