Is there a way to embed the google navigation app within my Titanium app? Or at the very least, is there a way to launch google navigation from my app and pass in an address that it will start navigating to?
Basically I'm trying to create an app where it has a list of addresses and the user can click on one and it will start giving them turn by turn directions to that address.
It's actually very easy, just use the following:
Ti.Platform.openURL('http://maps.google.com/maps?t=m&saddr=' + sourceAddress + '&daddr=' + destinationAddress);
The address can be a comma separated Lat/Lng or a real address. I use Lat,Lng for source address and a real address for the destination.
* This will open in Safari using the Simulator and will open in the Maps application on the phone.
You will need to use the Titanium API to retrieve and process requests to the Google Directions API.
It's certainly an achievable task.
Probably just use the openurl (maps://) or something?
Is there a way to parse and show "just the driving directions from point A to point B" from google maps api navigation onto our android titanium application w/o showing the other features from the api?
