Hi,

It could be nice to include bike routes in future versions.


Cheers.

Where exactly?

P.S. You know that you can speed up the process of adding features that are important to you by sponsoring them, right :)

Where exactly - where should the bike feature be displayed. Should it be a button on the map, in the navigation? Should it be displayed when you search for address etc.

The other day I found a website with the following options: regular map, terrain, satellite, satellite+labels, street view, earth view and 1 more icon: bike routes. I click on top of the bike routes icon and a green line on the map showed me all the biking routes.

I was just thinking that as many features you can add to your product, it will receive more recognition. Personally, I am not interested in the bike routes by the moment, so, don't worry. It was just an idea.

I want hotspot to be the best all over the world as well. 1st- because it's an amazing component and 2nd, because you deserve that recognition.
Lately, I have been searching around in so many different places, but i can not find the biking routes right now. I am posting another features I've found so far:
Demo - using KML Files (scroll down to see the map)
http://www.kksou.com/php-gtk2/Joomla-Gadgets/googleMaps-plugin.php#demo

Earth View
http://demo.hotjoomlatemplates.com/test/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=59&Itemid=90

As soon as I get the link to the biking routes, i will let you know. I know google maps is using it. http://maps.google.ca/ but i don't know how many countries have been already covered.

Hi

I've found this topic by searching before posting wish for same feature.
I'd very much like to have this option added in some future in HotSpots.

Many tourist websites shows some kind of maps with hiking or biking routes.

This could be done by adding option to add/edit coordinates instead of just one marker.

Something similar already exists in "GoogleMaps pro" component, but problem is that component doesn't feature translation for locations and categories in latest versions. In that component, user can draw polygons by clicking on map.

I think that hotspots would benefit by adding this option.

Best approach would be to have button in specific location: "Draw on map".
When clicked editing mode switches into drawing mode and each click on map adds new coordinate on map which is linked by line.

General settings should also feature new options:
- node (coordinate) color and size
- line thickness and color

What do you think?

Regards
