Hello Ron, should we use this url (https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/directions/json?origin=Machilipatnam&destination=Vijayawada&mode=driving) in google maps ios sdk for directions between 2 locations?

Hi, is it just me or is it that the icons that pop up on the map will only be the icon of the first selected type in the table view controller. For example, if I select Cafe and Supermarket, only Cafe icons (and locations) will appear, completely ignoring that Supermarket was also selected.

Hi,
I have downloaded the material and when i build and run the project, it asks for my current location. I give my permission access but it display UK and then USA location although i belong to Asian country. It’s not picking up my current location.

In case anyone else notices this bug, the Google Places API docs say that you can only pass in one type per query, and if you pass in multiple, only the first one will be used and the rest ignored.
