View Full Version : Directions - rules about Start and End?

I'd always assumed that if I set two placemarks on well established roads, then used Directions From Here and Directions To Here on each of them, that would give me a route. But it looks that I was wrong. GE hunts for my placemark names as if they were existing locations or addresses - and obviously doesn't find them.

Strange - it works OK today! Whatever I name them, after placing two placemarks GE now correctly calculates a route between them.

Yesterday it refused. For example, previously I placed one placemark on a road running through Joshua Tree National park, California, and named it 'Joshua'. GE then asked 'Did you mean Joshual St, New York, Joshua Dr, Connecticut,.' etc.

Presumably a temporary aberration!
