10.4: Replace the phone book widget's mapping service
Authored by: bvdecicco on Apr 30, '05 03:08:28PM

I got it to work without a problem too. I used the shorter of the 2 code block examples. I poked around the .js file in the addressbook package but nothing jumped out as easily as it did in the phonebook. Oh well.

10.4: Replace the phone book widget's mapping service
Authored by: El Payo on May 04, '05 10:09:59PM

The Address Book widget hooks directly into the data that Address Book app stores, which includes URL map locations of the adresses stored. These addresses parsed and looked up on Apple's servers using MapQuest and then the URL is returned to Address Book to store in the contact file.

So getting Address Book widget to use Google would mean getting Apple to rewrite it's lookup system to use Google.

See my post futher down for more info.
