    Anybody know how to..."see title".

    After entering source and destination information via google maps, is there a way to forward the resulting directions whether it be via text, email, or otherwise to another person.

    Alternatively, is there a way to forward basic GPS location info via the same methods.

    I have not been able to find this option via HTC Footprints either.

    Help appreciated.

    How about when in Google Maps, select Labs and enable 'short url', then create the directions, and finally hit the 'link' and send that short url link?

    Thank you for the feedback. Partial solution found. This sends GPS location info, but not directions.

    Click and hold on a pin or any point on map > Click resulting bubble > Share this place > via Email, SMS, Facebook, etc.

    I'm not showing 'short url' listed in Labs.

    Google Maps ver. 4.6.0
