Show a route without coordinates

I am following the routemapinvoker sample, which uses fixed coordinates to display a route.

Is it possible to show a route without coordinates, i.e. only an address?
Or do i have to add a geocoder call in between?

Re: Show a route without coordinates

[ Edited ]

on a second note, it seems the sample is not workig on the DevAlpha at all, so it seems i have to postpone this development part...

 

edit:

seems that the readme is pre-update, after some tests it works now.

 

the start location can be omitted, but the end location seems to be required with long/lat values, if i use only an address the maps application shows but does nothing.

Re: Show a route without coordinates

I noticed that on Dev Alpha the Route was only displayed from time to time

seems to be a dev alpha problem, perhaps 1 GB RAM not enough
