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.
