Driving Directions using Search on a Mobile Map

ZeeMaps allows you to search your pinned locations on mobile phones. This can be specifically handy if you are looking to get driving directions to your pins that satisfy a certain criteria, e.g., locate all the Gold customers in your vicinity and get driving directions to them.

First create the map on ZeeMaps, then add pins on the map. ZeeMaps provides several easy ways of adding pins: one at a time, uploading through spreadsheets, copy-and-pasting from a table, and so forth. You can add as many pins as you like on a given map. For example, if you are sales person, you might want to create a map with all your customers, potential customers, leads, etc., on a single map. To distinguish the customers from potential and leads, you can also use different colored pins for each category.

Search Menu

To perform a search, click on the menu icon on your map to activate the menu, and then click on the Search item.

Search Dialog

This should bring up a search page, where you can search based on any of your marker fields, e.g., name, description, and combine it with a distance search. For example, you can search for all locations with case number (custom field ) 211 within 2 miles from Chicago, IL.

Once the search is performed, the markers on the map and list will be limited to the ones that matched the search. Go to the map to see the locations, or click on the menu again to get to the list. Click on any entry on the map or the list to get to the entry, and then click on the Directions button to get directions to the place. Depending on your mobile phone, you will either be directed to Google Maps or Apple Maps for directions.
