Store GPS coordinates in URLs in Address Book
Authored by: hookoa on Jul 10, '09 08:45:34AM

Rather than Google Earth, don't you mean Maps.google.com?

I don't find a way to copy a URL from a coordinate in Google Earth. Or am I missing something?

Store GPS coordinates in URLs in Address Book

I think it means to click on the Google Maps button on the Google Earth toolbar. That was the only way I could find to get a URL from within Google Earth

Only way I can find is to right click on the location name (link in the box below the "Fly To" search box) and choose copy. Then paste that into, umm, anything, and edit it to leave only the URL.

I get no spaces then either.

OK, no, scrap that :( That URL doesn't work to bring up maps on the iPhone, though it works just fine in OS X.

My bad.
