    Hi, in need of a business directory plugin which allows me to displays all business on a map, then filter them out by parameters, and create an efficient route between them. Is this possible? Thanks

    1. Zlatko

      thanks for asking. We are sorry, the feature that would determine the route between two addresses of items custom post type doesn’t exists. You/visitors can use default address in Get Direction plugin or by your geolocation.

      Thanks for understanding.

      Hello Diky,

      thank you for interesting in Get Direction plugin. As the plugin uses google map by default, … unfortunately there are no options like you have described above. The plugin doesn’t have implemented the other maps by default.

      Thanks for understanding.
      Best regards!

    Does your product do it ?

    Your “Get Direction” Tool is not working – not even on your own site!

    It is not possible to use Get Directions plugin with Openstreetmap provider. Due to Google restrictions it’s not possible to use Openstreetmap and Google Maps on the same page.

      Should you be interesting to use this feature with Google Maps – please have a look at the following info as you might find them interesting:
