    On the Google 2010 I/O Day Two, they show a Google Chrome extension that they use to send an Android "intent" to the phone from Google Maps, and the phone takes that intent and shows you the mapping on it's screen.

    I'm having trouble finding this Extension now that I actually have an Android phone (EVO). I swear I had this on one of my computers before I had an android phone, but I try lots of stuff out and can't remember how I found it.

    Thoughts?

    I think that was an upcoming development plan for googlemaps that is only possible with the new Froyo release.

    I dont even think it was possible in froyo yet. I think that was part of the new online marketplace and part of gingerbread or when the online music store and market place starts

    Chrome to Phone works on the nexus running 2.2 but not on the Droid running 2.2.
