How to enable map "Complete Action Using" setting.

    In my Hero phone when I open a browser and search in the google local I get an option to show map. When I click on show map it should open "Complete Action Using" to ask if I want to open the map in the browser OR Google map. But now I don't get that option and it opens the map in browser by default. To solve it I already tried:
    1. Reset "Launch by default" option in Menu > Settings > Applications > Manage applications.
    2. Also tried Reset Phone factory Settings.

    Can you please help me in enabling the setting to get "Complete Action Using" window before it opens the map?

    I would've thought picking Clear Defaults in manage applications for the browser + map would've worked.

    Already tried Clearing Defaults in manage applications for the browser and map also, reset to factory defaults still not cleared :mad:

    Hello. I am also having this problem. Since the above OS update, I can no longer launch the google maps application from a hyperlink in the default web browser. Clearing defaults for both maps and browser doesn't work. Downgrading from maps 5 to 4.4 doesn't work. I even tried installing opera browser and trying links from there - still no luck.

    The only way maps can be launched that i found is by clicking the 'launch maps' link from the google download page for the app. The link looks like this: geo:0,0?z=2

    The problem has been brought up over at the google support forums as well: how to change the default launched app from browser (maps app or goggle maps via internet) - Google Mobile Help

    This is a very small but annoying bug: using google search for shopping etc whilst out and about is now impossible. Hope it's fixed otherwise advantage iphone.

    After more than a year, this issue hasn't been fixed? I recently upgraded my T-mobile HTC sensation to ice cream sandwich 4.0.3. and now the feature is missing. I want the feature back! Any idea?
