How to disable tab programatically in ionic2?

I want to use google map directions service in my ionic app. but ngCordova Geolocation only provide google map and display map in ionic app. please help if you have any idea

Map directions… I’m in the same boat. It seems me that Ionic doesn’t accept map directions… :unamused:

cannot find proper doc and example for $cordovaContacts

hi @TomCosta i find something useful:
google map direction javascript api

in that scroll down in Demos and sample code click directions tab
you will see direction code


paste it on your code and its working. :grinning:

Hi everybody,

I have been trying to make my app work for days. I can only debug in the browser, and there everything looks great and is working properly. I think is related to $cordovaSQLite and pass of the variables. I will much appreciate if you could help me.

Thanks in advance!
