This Module requires a Google API key which has associated usage charges. Please make sure you are aware of the usage charges before entering your key in this Module’s configuration.
The Google Traffic Widget allows you to display traffic data to a Layout.
The Google Traffic Module must be configured with a Google Maps API key before use. The “get a key” documentation describes the process and differences between the keys.
The Google Traffic Module is installed from the Modules page under the Administration section of the menu. Click on the Install Module button and select the Module to install.
After installation, select the Module from the grid and use the row menu to select Edit.
Complete the form fields and include the API key. This form also contains settings to provide a default duration and a minimum duration. Please make sure you understand these two settings and configure them in a suitable way for your environment.
Please note: The Google API is charged per map load and therefore how long the Widget remains on screen has a direct relation on the charges you will accrue.
