    Question How can send coordinates or launch Nokia Maps?

    Hi, first of all, thanks for reading this.
    My problem is I have a program developed in Qt Quick, where I get a list of vehicles and a GPS location using a webservice. I made ​​it work, somewhat well, since I've set the list without problem, and their respective locations on the map. However, there are things that obviously do better Nokia Maps that my program, therefore, how can I send the parameters that I have to Nokia Maps? Something similar to what you do when you send your location to WhatsApp.
    Thanks again and hope someone can help me and I sorry if you don't understand my english, I'm learning.

    Thanks for response symbianyucca! But, if that code works, how can I use with my code in Qt Quick? Currently, I use qml Map element to visualize the vehicle, but I need to use an option like WhatsApp works. Any idea?

    Basically, the method might work, and might fail to work with some Maps application devices. As there is no official way really, the method mentioned there should be considered as workaround, which is not officially supported.

    Anyway, if you wish to use the code, you would need to implement it inside the C++ files, and then just call the function from the QML.

    Those links are not basically giving instructions on opening Maps application in any ways, the first one is showing how to use the Maps with the browser, surely you can also use that for embedding static map image into your own application, but it wont give you the functionality of the maps application

    Re: How can send coordinates or launch Nokia Maps?

    Kusumk, thanks for your reply. The problem is that I would use:
    Code:
    VisScreen.launchMaps(positionSource.position.coordinate.latitude, positionSource.position.coordinate.longitude)
    But, I had seen that code, and tried to use it but failed (VisScreen? launchMaps?). Doesn't build. Well, I'll try with diferent options like use web api, but I need anything to visualise offline.
    Please if someone have some idea, please reply.

    Have you considered on using the Map API for including maps in your own application, instead of using the Maps application ?

    Re: How can send coordinates or launch Nokia Maps?

    Yes, of course, but, like I commented previously, I need use maps offline at certain moments, because no always use online. I use QML Map Element now. I'm thinking about using Web API as a last option.
