map route

I have some folks who would like a route mapped for a local marathon, can I accomplish this with this extension? I got it with the suite and have never had to crack it open as of yet

The direction provided by the google API probably wont be able to return your marathon route.

The directions returned are for driving, so will try to find the quickest way to get from point A to B. most marathons dont plan their routs on the quickest way, but the safest way for the runners.

One thing that you could try is to change the travel mode the directions are calculated with from diving mode to walking mode.

To do this, you will need to edit the map JS code that is created.

find the following line:

directions.load('from: ' + fromAddress.full + ' to: ' + address_0.full);

and change it to:

directions.load('from: ' + fromAddress.full + ' to: ' + address_0.full, {travelMode:G_TRAVEL_MODE_WALKING});

this still may not get your exact marathon route.

you're welcome.

One thing to keep in mind is that the Google Maps API is what is used for

They have made major customizations to the API to give some of the flexibility offered.

can you get the marathon rout from a simple directions search at

If not, then it probably wont work in Pro Maps for Google.

Also keep in mind that the Walking Mode direction are in beta.
