    Does anyone know a way to enable the geo: intent on the Android OS? So text content that follows the format "geo:49.345,-119.123" would be clickable and link to mapping software like Google maps. Similar to the way emails, phone numbers and URLs are all clickable. I know there is a proposed standard for it (RFC5870), but is there a way to enable Android to do this?

    Thanks.

    Are you asking to be able to click on something like this in a text message to redirect it to open up the Maps program?

    Yes, like when someone texts you their email address and it's highlighted in blue (clickable) and clicking on it launches your email client, except for using position information to launch a map application.
