Routing Multiple Points

Is it possible with GMap, to route multiple points? Most of the example I see have just 2 points. I have a list of stops (all in random order) and would like to order them (sort of route optimization at basic), giving a starting point. Is this possible?

This would be very handy :-) I have been looking at the TSP algorithm and was going to use that for the time being

If you have I think upto 25 points so 23 waypoints on a return to base then this is the place to look

build up your url string like,UK&destination=Birmingham,UK&waypoints=optimize:true|Leeds,UK|Birkenhead,UK|stoke-on-trent,UK&sensor=false

then search for


this will give you the waypoints that have been sorted, the important part is optimize:true

then all you have to do is route from waypoint to waypoint, not the best idea but it will work :-)

Where about in the code does the URL string go and get executed?

Thanks radioman, but specifically where in the googlemap provider?

debug, routing function, without testing you can't add this feature anyway

Ok, thanks for the super quick reply radioman - great service :-)

If I go and add this (by overloading the existing function), it will be overwritten on your next updated version I download - is that correct? If yes, if I do it, how can I get it merged into your live source so I don't loose these changes, and I'd like to make it available to other users as I'm sure it would be useful to many other users.

Many thanks

Charlotte :-)
