I was just playing with the Demo on the site, and added a location so the Google Map would display. Why is the map so small? The maps are a great idea, but at this point, they don't seem very useful. Yeah, it shows a map, but what good is it if I can't get directions to that location?
I have been using the Google Maps plugin by Mike Reumer (tech.reumer.net) for a while now on my sites, and I use it in my calender events all the time. This allows me much customization, and allows the user to specify the size of the map, and any additional items that they want displayed. For instance, normally I set my maps to display the directions bubble so that a user can type in their address and get the directions to the location.
Instead of re-creating the wheel, if you could just incorporate the Google Maps plugin, that would be awesome!!
