function handleErrors() {
        if (gdir.getStatus().code == G_GEO_UNKNOWN_ADDRESS)
            alert("Error code: " + gdir.getStatus().code);
        else if (gdir.getStatus().code == G_GEO_SERVER_ERROR)
            alert("Error code: " + gdir.getStatus().code);
        else if (gdir.getStatus().code == G_GEO_MISSING_QUERY)
            alert("Error code: " + gdir.getStatus().code);
        else if (gdir.getStatus().code == G_GEO_BAD_KEY)
            alert("Error code: " + gdir.getStatus().code);
        else if (gdir.getStatus().code == G_GEO_BAD_REQUEST)
            alert("A directions request could not be successfully parsed.\n Error code: " + gdir.getStatus().code);
        else alert("An unknown error occurred.");
