Maps navigation possible?

Hello all, love the App Inventor!
I am curious to know about it’s features. I would like to create an app that has a simple button that, when tapped would open Google Maps and begin turn-by-turn driving directions, is this possible with AI?

If it is possible, are there any tutorials or example apps I could look at?




Sure Mike. Use an ActivityStarter and intents to open Google’s Navigator app. This link provides basic information!msg/mitappinventortest/3d7bFyGM508/pNsqAb9hBQAJ

It also provides other options to provide route information too.

Is this what you want to do.

That is exactly what I needed, thank you!!

Okay, one more newb question; How do I get the Pink “Text Join” to allow for multiple inputs? Mine only seems to allow two?
