Can I use address (street name, number and city) ?

Thanks.

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

Sure!
Here is the app that solves that:

The solutions I've seen here work with coordinates. Does anyone have a response to the original post which asked for links using an address?

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.

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.

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 :-)
