- So attempting to return results using Google Maps API. I'm also using googlemaps.places.Autocomplete for the origin and destination boxes. Oddly, I'm seeing a difference between it and how it works on maps.google.com.
Example: through Google Maps API
origin: I start typing "McDonald's, Woodruff Rd, Greenville, SC 29607. after selecting it that is exactly what it puts into the route calculation.
through Google Maps site (maps.google.com),
origin: I start typing "McDonald's, Woodruff Rd, Greenville, SC 29607. after selecting it, however, Google is resolving it to a more specific address, McDonald's, 1111 Woodruff Rd, Greenville, SC 29607.
Obviously then the Google Maps route is more accurate/precise. Why is this altering of the selected address not happening through Google Maps API? is it an additional api call I need to use?

- Also, the route directions through the API seems to drop the establishment name, leaving just the address. Google Maps site keeps the establishment name. How do I keep it through using the API?
any help is appreciated.
