Hi All,

is there any way to use/implement Add Destinations(multiple
destinations) in google map V3?

Like we do in V2 for Point1 > Point2 > Point3 > Point4 is

'from:Point1 to: Point 2 to: Point 3';

Google Map V3 does not have it in
http://code.google.com/apis/maps/documentation/v3/reference.html#DirectionsRequest


Please help!!

Not being familiar with V2, V3 does have waypoints that you can pass
to the DirectionsRequest object.

Waypoints are an array of objects in the form documented here:
http://code.google.com/apis/maps/documentation/v3/reference.html#DirectionsWaypoint

Thanks Nicholas

But sorry for the misunderstanding. What I am looking for is to Add
Multiple Destinations not Waypoints. Anyways I have found it in
http://code.google.com/p/gmaps-api-issues/issues/detail?id=1421. It
looks like this feature is not available in V3.

Googlemaps version 3 works a bit different with directions that
version 2. In version 3 you need to specify a "origin" and a
"destination" destination in the request to DirectionsService. In
addition to this, like Nicholas explained, there is the extra
"waypoints" functionality.

The directions.php example on http://code.google.com/p/gmaps-api-issues/issues/detail?id=1421
is a bit outdated and does not work anymore.
I modified the example to the current (dec-2009) v3 calls and can be
found on http://www.grasoft.be/mtb/maps/directions.htm. Is this what
you want see?
The origin is '500 Memorial Drive, Cambridge, MA'.
The destionation is '4 Yawkey Way, Boston, MA 02215 (Fenway Park)'.
There are 2 additional points 'Hampshire St, Cambridge, MA' and
'Monsignor Obrien Hwy, Cambridge, MA'.

kind regards,

Can I use different travelMode between different waypoints? I want to draw the first part of directions in travelmode and the secondo in walking mode.

Thanks

I think this is possible , for an instance

Lets say you are moving from Point A > Point B > Point C you have to
fetch DirectionsResult object for Point A > Point B using
DirectionsTravelMode.DRIVING and Point B > Point C using
DirectionsTravelMode.WALKING. And to plot polyline/path in map use
polyline decoder and retrieve latitudes and longitudes.


Is this helpful?
