Not displaying driving directions

Hi All,

I have recently purchased this product today and I have implemented it into a web page but the problem is it wont display the driving directions. I have followed the documentation that is provided on how to do this but nothing has come of it as of yet. Any idea's?

Having same problem with directions not showing at all

I am having the same issue. Although it shows the placer in the page in DW, it does not show in the page when viewed. I also purchased the software yesterday.

Please post the url of the page where you have problems. We can take a look at it and try to determine what is causing this issue.

I posted a secondary copy of the page, you can find it here. The original is behind a secure folder because it hasn't been approved for live yet.

Using CSS I have the directions floating to the right of the map. But it is not showing anything though the placeholders are showing in DW.

You have a from address set to:

"95"

You need a number and a street name for it to give directions to a location. That is an invalid location so that directions can't be calculated.

I just changed it to the address of the shell station right off I95, the address posted by Google maps itself, and it is still not showing the directions.

go to maps.google.com and search for this:

3905 Northlake Boulevard, Lake Park, Florida, 33403 to 11780 U.S. Highway One, North Palm Beach, Florida, 33408, United States

Notice it asks you to choose one of the 9 things - maybe that is causing it failose one of the 9 things - maybe that is causing it fail

It seems to work if I use:

US Highway 1

instead of:

U.S. Highway One

Hey it works after changing to the #1 like you suggested. Thanks!

Remote areas in Australia

Unfortunately, for a lot of our locations here in Australia, we simply do not have registered Addresses.

For example, if I wanted to create driving directions from a street location in Cairns, QLD 4870 Australia to my destination: Daintree Ferry Crossing (which does not have a Rd or Street Address then the directions system within ProMaps does not recognise this.

In google maps, I can do it, maps?f=d&source=s_d&saddr=-16.896482,145.754392&daddr=Daintree+River+Ferry&hl=en&geocode=%3BFfLkB_8ds5mqCCGTU9HKAfpRJg&mra=dme&mrcr=0&mrsp=0&sz=16&sll=-16.897776,145.756688&sspn=0.012729,0.022638&ie=UTF8&ll=-16.259576,145.399101&spn=0.003193,0.005659&z=18

I can do it by using co-ordinates in my maps and then putting an actual start address st number: google_zone_1.html , which is not entirely correct because preference would be to have the Corner of Airport Ave and Sheridan St be the start point. My question really is, is there a way to do it by simply creating Lat|Long for the Starting address instead of having to use an actual St Number?
