add google maps to website

There used to be a button/wheel you click on to get the code in googlemaps.com to embed the google map into a website.  I do not see that wheel anymore.  

It searched online and someone suggested I get the wp googlemaps plugin.  I loaded the free version and I was able to put map into site BUT, there is no link to "get directions" in case someone wants to enter their starting point.  Actually, this app requires $19.99 to put in the "get directions" portion which I think is terrible!  Isn't there a way to embed a google map right from google maps which includes directions?

When you're looking in Google maps, click the hamburger menu in the top left. That will drop-down and there is an option for "Share or Embed Map".  Click this and you'll see:

embed google map
Copy the iframe code and you can put it in your site:
<iframe src="https://www.google.com/maps/embed?pb=!1m10!1m8!1m3!1d13030.448231442133!2d-120.64873954999999!3d35.26590590000001!3m2!1i1024!2i768!4f13.1!5e0!3m2!1sen!2sus!4v1441908846397" width="600" height="450" frameborder="0" style="border:0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

However, not all Google Map features are available. Per Google:
Keep in mind that traffic information and some other Maps info might not be available in the embedded map.

Sure, iframes are fine. It's the defacto way to put Google Maps into any site.
