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.

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

Go ahead, and post the result here.



Sure!
Here is the app that solves that:

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

It should be possible... I use an app that tracks communication of emergency departments (mostly fire department). The app has an 'Maps' button. If I press it, I can choose between Google Maps and Waze. When Google Maps is chosen, Maps is started, centered on the location. If I choose Waze, Waze is started and a route to the location is started.

I have no idea what the exact url is though. I am rather sure the app developer did not include something special for Waze, so the url that is used for G Maps should work for Waze too.

For both Android and iOS, the URL http://waze.to/{encoded_latlon} is working, but you need to decrypt the {encoded_latlon} format. I.e.:
hu2s555555 -> 48.356860,17.011106
hu2s555556 -> 48.356904,17.011062
hu2s555559 -> 48.356944,17.011020
hu2s000000 -> 47.812524,16.875020
hu2r000000 -> 46.406272,21.093770

Sorry, also the following format is working, both for Android and iOS:

http://waze.to/?ll=latitude,longitude&navigate=yes

Example:
http://waze.to/?ll=48.149491,17.108636&navigate=yes

Hi guri211,
maybe a stupid question but how you actually decrypt the lat, lon to hu2...... format?

Thanks

I have no algorithm for that, this was just manually rewritten from the client (from history file). Anyway this is not necessary, as the format http://waze.to/?ll=48.149491,17.108636&navigate=yes is also working.

Android URL Scheme (Launch Waze from Email, web etc)

Postby MaFt » Fri Mar 23, 2012 9:34 am

I'm working on a site that I want to offer users the ability to navigate directly to a point using Waze.

On the iPhone I use the info from http://world.waze.com/dev/documentation/ and link to:
waze://?ll=52.123,-1.234&z=6&navigate=yes which opens up the waze app and starts navigating.

However, not everyone has an iPhone/iPad and I want to be able to do the same for Android users too.

Now, I've got the app to open via this link:
http://waze.to/waze://?ll=52.123,-1.234 ... vigate=yes

BUT I cannot get it to navigate to a specific lat/long location. All it does is open the app. Are the URL variables available on the Android version of the app? If not, will they be or shall I solely offer navigation via Sygic on Android handsets?

Thanks in advance
