Travel Directions Map Gadget
The Google Maps team have released a handy 'Travelling Directions' gadget in time for the holiday period. A lot of people will be doing a lot of travelling over the next two weeks. Now with the new directions gadget, you can bring driving and walking directions to your home page or even to your own website.
By copying and pasting a single line of code, any website can offer customized door-to-door directions to their users. Users can then print the directions with a single click. Websites can even change the default destination to an address of their own by visiting the gadget creation page. This is a great option for businesses who can embed the gadget on their websites so that their customers can quickly get directions to the business.
Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson Airport, Stanford University, Legoland California and Emeril Lagasse are just some of the businesses that have already added the gadget to their websites.
