Just found this component and setting it up to my liking. Now i'm having a bit of trouble getting the maps to work with. API key in use is non-restricted while this is in test mode. I've specified an address and travel options in the "route" tab of the map. But the option to request directions isn't possible.
I can give front-end access, but for that i'll need an e-mail adress to send the credentials too. I just went to the component "Maps" menu item on the left (admin), clicked new map and specified as needed. Didn't get a choice to choose a specific type.
