Store GPS coordinates in URLs in Address Book
Authored by: CaptCosmic on Jul 10, '09 09:44:02AM
One suggested change to the URL: Add an loc: to the front of the query.
http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&q=loc:38.343410,-75.187239%20%28Ocean%20City%20Worship%20Center%29
This insures the Google Maps will drop the marker at the exact coordinates, and not at the closest street address it can find. Not so important for marking businesses and such, but more important when trying to mark specific locations (such as where the buried treasure is kept.
