    I recently installed LauncherPro on my Droid and am trying to make use of the additional home screen space. One thing I would like to do is create a on-click shortcut to search for nearby hardware stores (I'm a contractor and sometimes need to pickup task-specific materials). I could swear there used to be a shortcut available called "Direct Search" or something like that, that would do just what I'm looking for, but I don't see it when I try to add a shortcut to the home screen. Did this used to exist, or was it just my imagination? Is there anything like it now?

    I know I could make a bookmark in the browser and place a shortcut to the bookmark on the home screen, but I was hoping for the results to come up in Google Maps.

    Have you tried this?

    Long press
    Shortcuts
    Directions & Navigation
    Address: Hardware Store.

    Never tried yet but worth a short

    It works... thanks! The results I got are a little screwy (they included a health food store), but that's not something I can do anything about other than to change my search criteria.
