Driving Directions to a point on the map


(Chris) #1

I am creating a map of charge points for electric vehicles in a region. Is it possible that the user can be directed to the chargepoint from their present location?

Hi,

This would mostly be used in a mobile device scenario, wouldn’t it? I’m thinking of adding “Navigate via Google Maps / Apple Maps” button to mobile devices, would that work for you?

Yes, as people are generally in a car when they look up a chargepoint

So my idea is that on each point there would be a link to “Navigate to…” which would open up Google Maps and then Google Maps can take over.

That would be perfect, especially as the chargepoints will be in guest houses, bed & breakfasts and hotels where the user would most probably have booked their accommodation. Thank you.

@ismiseweb, a direction/navigation button has now been implemented, which opens Google Maps directions to that point.
