On a site that I am building (using drupal 7), there is a feature that I need to include that I can't seem to find; Google maps. I am looking for two things;

1: something that will allow you to put in your home address, and it will give you directions to a preset location

2: something that will allow you to imbed a map of the surrounding area of a preset destination by stating the location in a CCK

do either of these exist? if so, where can I find them?

I need it to look like this:
where instead of an image, the map is actually an embedded google map. enter image description here

  • Why not embed a screenshot into the page?

There is the GMap Module module, but there is just a development snapshot, for Drupal 7.

    To show a map go to manage display (of the content type), then set the location field (the field for the map) to be shown as a map

  • @Ephraim you can display map instead of link to map. Please dig in to settings.

There is the Simple Google Maps module.

This module is about the simplest way to get a Google Map, and/or a link to a Google Map, displayed with your content. It provides a field formatter for Drupal 7 text fields. With this formatter, you can enter a single-line address that Google Maps would recognize into a plain text field, such as: 100 Madison Ave, New York, NY.
And then on your Manage Display screen (or in Views field setup), you can choose to display the field with an embedded iframe Google Map, a link to a Google Maps map, or both; with or without the original address text.
