Settings

We will start from the General Settings page, where to include the Google Maps Api Keys, which are mandatory for the plugin to work. Creating the API key is very simple and you can use the same key for both the Google API Browser Key and Google API Server Key.

Here you can also set if you want to draw lines between the markers and optionally draw curved lines on the map.

You can chose what location to zoom on on 1st pageload. (First or Last)

You can also define the Map zoom level, the map type and the Past and Future route colors.
