Open MobileNavigator from Maps in Safari on iPhone iOS devices
Let me preface this hint by explaining the use for the Navigon Connect Bookmarklet on my iPhone. I understand that there are apps out there that already connect to Navigon's MobileNavigator; this is just another option if you find yourself on Google Map's site in Mobile Safari and want to quickly open MobileNavigator with the destination you found on Google. With that said, lets get to business...
  1. Drag this bookmark to your Bookmark Bar in Safari and sync your bookmarks to your iPhone through iTunes: Navigon Connect
  2. On the iPhone, find a destination on maps.google.com in Mobile Safari.
  3. Select the Navigon Connect Bookmark from Mobile Safari.
That's it; MobileNavigator will then open with the Longitude/Latitude coordinates from the destination in Google Maps.

Tips: This only works from the Google Maps web site. For best results, make sure that your destination is in the middle of the map. Also, as it's only one line of Javascript code, it's really easy to add it to Quix, too. Be sure to check the Quix site for syntax.

I originally posted this tip
on my blog, where you can find screenshots and a bit more detail, if you want it.
