Use Yahoo! maps with Address Book Apps
Address Book lets you get a map of an address by looking it up on Mapquest. I prefer Yahoo! maps. Inspired by this hint, I whipped up a little script that lets me find an address on Yahoo! maps.

Paste the script into Script Editor (in Applications: AppleScript), save it as Yahoo! maps.scpt in your user's Library/Address Book Plug-Ins folder, and restart Address Book.

Once Google maps starts working with Safari, I imagine I'll be adding it, as well, as per the recent hint.

Thanks for this.

I'll note that a similar effort pre-dates this at <http://jamescat.net/software/#yahoomap>. Great minds and all that...

Thanks for this! I use Yahoo! Maps and Yellow Pages all the time to dump out driving directions and this connection to Address Book just makes it even more powerful!
