Getting Google maps onto iPhone

Discussion in 'Apple' started by John McWilliams, Mar 18, 2009.

  1. More specifically, I get sent links to mapquest, which I detest, so I
    convert the address and pop it into

    Now, I need to get same into my iPhone, so I E-mail myself the link,
    which does work, but it is somewhat kludgy.
    I'd like to get it so I can click the link in my Calendar on the iPhone
    to take me directly to the Maps app with, obviously(?) the destination
    read in. How to? Or other work arounds so I can get to the maps quickly
    with the destination already chosen.

  2. Enter the address into Address Book on your Mac and sync with your iPhone.
    It'll then be available for selection in the Maps app.

    In the Maps app, if the search/start/end address box isn't empty, tap the (X)
    button to clear it. Then tap the small book icon and choose an entry from your
    address book.

  3. You left out a step; after tapping the book icon, tap the "contacts" tab
    in the bottom right of the screen.

  4. The only reply showing me in this thread is Michelle's reply to Wayne's
    post. So I don't see if there are other replies, nor if there's more to
    Wayne's post. {I've had a touch of difficulty with the Motz server this am}

    IAE, I am not looking to add stuff to my Address Book, which does work
    nicely for those people I want to visit, and who already live in the AB.

    I'd like to find a good method for getting Google maps activated on the
    iPhone with just a link from my desktop.

  5. I don't understand what you're trying to do.
