what is the point of this api? a staff member implemented this API. it seems like mapquest does offer a directions feature for their API. but they cost way too much money i would ask the developer, but i dont want to rub him off the wrong way if we do need to purchase it and make a deal. http://mtdirectionsk.it i want a free map api i can have in my app, if google and bing are free and have the same feature, wouldn't every one just use it?
