If you're anything like me, you're hopeless with maps, have bad vision and typically find yourself on the side of the road holding the refidex upside down in the dark. Without the luxury of having a GPS in car navigational system, this for me is usually the case. I get cranky, I get grumpy and worst of all - I always get lost! Especially when I have no idea of where I am going -- Aaagghh!
However, getting directions to listed garage sales on egaragesales.com.au just got a whole lot easier. Im hopeful that this new addition to our website proves beneficial for all our users, and eliminates the amount of "u-turns" required when hitting the streets early on a saturday morning!
egaragesales.com.au now offers directional maps, which show you exactly where you need to go! All you have to do is type in your origin, (or starting point), click a button, and wala! -- the directions are on screen in a step by step, turn left, turn right format. How easy is that?
Ok how does it work? Well, its really easy - and its powered by Google, so we know it works!
Basically you will now find under each map within every advertisement a small text box that reads "Get Directions -- Enter your starting Address"
Just type your address in there, or wherever it is that you are originating from, and a new window will open showing you the quickest and easiest route to get there. Easy!
Heres a small screen shot of where you will find it, and an example. Be mindful that this feature will only show on ads that have their addresses actively displaying.
Once you have entered in your address, you simply click on "Get Directions" and a new window will open that shows the exact route with step by step directional instructions. What you need to do here is simply click on PRINT on the very right hand side of the screen, next to SEND and LINK, and you will have something to take with you in the car that you can refer to!
Heres a quick example of how it will look. (example only)
Its easy, its quick and it works a treat!
Remember, if you plan on skipping from one garage sale to the next, be sure to enter in the correct address of where you will be departing from!
