Try Routes API to compute directions

Use this demo to try the Routes API. The demo lets you specify an origin and destination as a latitude/longitude pair or as a place ID. Click a location on the map to copy the latitude/longitude to the clipboard, and then paste the location into the form.

After you select Get directions, the demo displays the response from the computeRoutes method as a route on the map.
