Thanks to feedback from Florian who found out that the reverse geocode lookup by Google sometimes do not gives the right mapping. Have modified the code so that the googleDirections_tohere plugin now maps the exact location when latitude/longitude is given when specifying the "home position".

One other new feature for this new version is that: the user can now press the Enter key (as oppose to pressing the "Get Directions" button) to get the directions to your home position.

Documentation
Documentation of the extensions is great.
I used this to: I have used these extensions for many years on my garden club website, http://gardenbuds.org, to provide my members with directions to and from each of our tours and events. I couldn't be happier with their reliability and simplicity.
As of the this review (August 2012), this is now a package that includes all of the needed plugins to make this work - the basic Maps plugin, the Directions plugin, and the To Here plugin, all in one. Previously, you needed to install them separately, now they are combined into one package. The only drawback is that this is confusing if installing it over the old ones...



The plugin itself works great, and does everything it says without issue.

Great Extension


Posted on 27 December 2011
Works very nice like it says. The only two problems are that you have to have the other two googlemaps extensions which I try to have as few plugins as possible. The other thing is the user has to manually figure out the coordinates, if there was some sort of easy insert button this would be a stellar extension. But non the less this is the best joomla directions extension that I've used so far. I was able to nicely embed it into tabber making a nice tab for directions.
