Waze has a self-imposed limit of 2 routes that it will show. I haven't tried to influence it, but it could theoretically be persuaded to return more than 2 routes. Maybe.

There are max. 3 routes on client. Can we add intermediate point as Google map?

Unless someone builds a new livemap which accept 3 routes, this won't happen. The code isn't making special calls to the routing server but just using the client-side data already present when the data comes back from the call done by the livemap code itself. It seems you still think that the extension code is doing something special in interacting with the routing servers. It isn't. It's just using data already present in the data in your browser when the livemap requests a route. I don't think it would be a trivial matter to override the functionality of the livemap code itself to get 3 routes back and then somehow get the livemap to display 3 routes.

Intermediate route points I think would also be a huge coding undertaking. The routing server doesn't have this capability already, so this would have to be coded 100% on the client, making multiple calls to the routing server for A->B routed, then B->C route.

There is no functionality this extension adds to the LiveMap. If the routing server returns multiple routes, the LiveMap will show them and this extension will also show the instructions for multiple routes.

For example: http://www.waze.com/livemap/?zoom=13&la ... g=10232581


Thanks. It works
