This link is 404 now, but I found what appears to be this same app, but renamed and with more features (same author) at
https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... aps_parser

It can target other map applications besides Waze now, and the rename also gets rid of trademarks in the name presumably :-)

This bookmarklet does not seem to work with the current Google Maps. Is there an update or a link to the community plugins and extensions (which I don't see)? Thanks.

There isn't a way to automatically navigate to an address as there will be multiple search results for it. There's only one lat/lon location possible, so that's why that one can have navigate=yes. The dev documentation say to use ?q=<address search term> to search for the address. User will still probably have to select the one they want and tap Go.

Sure!
Here is the app that solves that:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... mapstowaze

and here is the source code for the app: https://github.com/marcosdiez/google_maps_to_waze

There are two kinds of Google Maps URLs:

http://maps.google.com/maps?daddr=10,10
and
http://maps.google.com/maps?q=10,10

Although both URLs launch Waze, it can only correctly parse the former.

Please fix it so it will parse the latter as well. It is a simple fix.

Thanks

Marcos
