set google maps default location

Post by bdestill » Fri Jun 13, 2008 12:23 am

Is it possible to have the google maps search template be set for a default location instead of the entire united states?

I would like to bump this thread.

When I type in "ma" Launchbar shows Google Maps and I can enter a location.
I'd like to have it connected to "routes", so whenever I type in a location it shows me the route from my address (which is always my start address) to the destination.

Here's what I use, you'll need to substitute your own city and address in the templates.

In these examples, the city is "Toronto, ON", and the address is "379 Avenue Rd."

Code: Select all

Name: Toronto Google Maps
URL: http://maps.google.com/maps?q=*+Toronto+ON


Code: Select all

Name: Directions in Toronto
URL: http://maps.google.com/maps?q=379+Avenue+Rd+Toronto+ON+to+*+Toronto+ON


Note that the directions template has the city twice in the URL.
