Hi Colin,
I have a need to calculate driving distances between two points (not  
in iOS but OSX) and didn't know about the Google maps API, I hope you  
get it working.  How did you get the initial latitude and longitude of  
the start and end points?  Is that available through Google maps API  
as well?
