Google maps questions

Does anyone know how to create a static map with directions between two markers?
I have a page that will contain the map that I'm converting to Word. If I put in an interactive one, it does not render in Word. If I use a static map, it renders fine, but there seems to be no way to have it mark directions.

Does anyone know how to get the turn by turn text directions as well?

Hi Gerry,

Have you tried this component ?

I think it might be what you are looking for.

Best regards...
Thanks. That's part of it. I've since figured it out. There is a Directions API that can be called which will provide the step by step directions between two locations (or more) and something they call a polyline, which can be used on the static map to draw the line that matches the directions.
