Smart Map has been replaced by Google Maps

Please install the Google Maps plugin instead. ➡️

As of February 2021, the Smart Map plugin has been completely rebuilt and replaced with the new Google Maps plugin for Craft CMS. For more details, see here...

The documentation below is for historical reference only.

<a href="{{ entry.myFieldHandle.googleMapUrl }}">Open in Google Maps</a>
{# Set destination with no starting point #}
<a href="{{ entry.myFieldHandle.directionsUrl }}">Directions in Google Maps</a>

{# Automatically detect user's starting location #}
<a href="{{ entry.myFieldHandle.directionsUrl }}&amp;saddr=Current+Location">Directions in Google Maps</a>

The directionsUrl method has up to three optional parameters:

directionsUrl(destinationTitle, startingTitle, startingAddress)
Parameter Description
destinationTitle Title of the destination marker.
startingTitle Title of the starting marker.
startingAddress An instance of another Address model. A path will be calculated between the two locations.

Titles may not always appear

Depending on the browser and usage, the destinationTitle and startingTitle may or may not be utilized.
