I had a similar need. The client wanted time and distance to work locations. They were using a link to open google maps, then manually entered the info. That was not working so well.. When I found out they were doing this. and remembering the new CALL feature in teamdesk...
I used google API to calculate distant, drive time, and show a map with route from the clients office. The process is 100% automated now. https://www.dropbox.com/s/eutw3cy54u1e6t0/teamdesk-google-map.jpg?dl=0
I plan to write a how-to and a sample database for this in the near future. But if you really need it now I can pass it on.
Yes Google API does cost eventually, but the free access limit is so high the client will never hit it.
