Challenges

Show the Estimated Distance and Estimated Time:

As per the client's requirement, parents can be able to see the estimated distance and the estimated time of school bus to pick up point for their children before picking up the children. To manage this functionality was a little bit tough. But after lots of research, this difficult task was achieved by applying custom logic on distance and time received by custom path drawer class.

Real-time Navigation Path With Multiple Pick up Points:

As per an app scenario, when the driver starts the trip, the map shows the path between the driver’s current location and the school location with multiple pick up points. It is necessary to update the path as the driver moves on the road. To manage this map view with multiple pick up points was a little bit tough for our developers. But after some deep research, this crucial task was achieved by applying the custom logic on Google's path drawing API.
