After our feature on lifehacker which I blogged about a week or so ago, we read some of the comments and decided that it was important to use driving directions to calculate our midpoint. You spoke out and we delivered… The new version of rendeznew will use the driving path between two points to calculate the midpoint (and something that we have that our competitors don’t have is the ability to avoid highways). Take a look at the screen shot here and take a look at the site for this example:
You can still enter up to four points, but our algorithm will not take into account the driving directions for three or four points. We are still working hard on developing something that will take some of those factors into account for more than two points. But for now, you can still enter up to four points and drag the midpoint to somewhere that is more to your liking. Actually, try it for two locations and see what happens, I think you will like what you see =). Thanks for all the feedback and as always email us or tell us in the comments about any bugs/suggestions/likes/dislikes/concerns (anything) that you want to tell us about rendeznew. Now go try things out and meet in the middle.
