I love having the map option. I write a travel Hub from time to time, and I enjoy having the ability to show the stops. However, one thing I would like to suggest for an alteration:
When maps are done, they have the option of showing the rout and directions. I don't like having so much in a capsule, so I don't like having the directions, but I do enjoy having the the rout marked on the map. If there isn't already a way that I'm just not savvy to, I'd like to suggest the option of just showing the rout taken on the map.....if that makes any sense
So is your suggestion to show the individual points, but just no lines between them indicating the route?
the line between the points that indicate the routs
I just double checked in the map capsule and was able to add 3 locations and pin them on the map without any route/lines between them.
what i mean was I want the line, but not the directions below
Like when you type in Google, how far is Town X from Town Z. You'll get a picture of a map showing from Point X to Point Z with a red line along the exact distance.
And you get the directions, which she doesn't want. Seems clear to me.
Line making route = Want
Text directions underneath = do not want.

Is there a way on the maps capsule to show a region of the US - the states of Illinois and Wisconsin?It keeps asking for a location - a specific location. I wanted to zoom out and show both Illinois and Wisconsin.
