Location Map Workaround

I just wanted to let the community know what I did as work around since the "show driving directions" are not working. I created individual screens using the native app plugin, and chose google maps (im using for both android and ios). I then entered the address I wanted in the plugin. I did this for each location I wanted to map. Then in the Location Map Plugin, for each location, under "Callout window tap action", I chose "Load the screen with nickname below", and choose the nickname of the native app plugin i created for the location. Now when a user views the map, they can click on the location, and it will attempt to open google maps. So far in iOS, it leaves the app, and opens safari (with a link to google maps). But at least a user can now get directions. Haven't yet tested this with Android. It's a roundabout way, but it meets the end goal. I know there's a few people out there that are waiting for fixes to the location map plugin. Hopefully this helps in the meantime... Cheers! Eric

Thanks Eric thanks for sharing, maybe add that to the buzz-tools site so your fix lives somewhere and not disappear in the forums after new topics get added daily.

Um yea, thats great and a but I need to have driving directions for over 65,000 locations. I have been studying coding so I am going to take my first stab at it. If indeed I can understand the codes I will let you know what I have come up with! There is a particular tutorial I am eyeballing. Google maps , mysql and php. seems pretty simple, especially for the amount of json data I have... wish me luck!
