the google geocoder does not like your destination address:
1 East Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA, 90017, USA


if I change that to :
700 East Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA, 90017, USA


I can get the directions to return.

I have the same problem. not get direction. this is page uffici.php. why?

it doesn't look you have properly bound the directions settings.

On the 5th step of the pro maps wizard, you need to click the lightning bolt next to the From Street, City, State, etc... and select the corresponding form element on your page.
