    Just tested it out, i sent a bing map to the phone and it opened up bing in the browser. was hoping to at least have an option to 'open with' google maps. any workarounds, you creative people?

    why would you be over on that evil Bing anything? :p
    But, I'm not surprised it doesn't convert

    Pardon my confusion, but why not open up Google maps in the browser to begin with? Why start with one app (Bing maps), and expect a second (chrometophone) to convert you to a third (Google maps)? I know this isn't the help you were looking for, but would you mind explaining the point to me?

    Odd expectation. Chrome2Phone only opens related apps for (not surprising) Google apps and services. Bing may offer mapping but as far as Chrome2Phone is concerned it's just another random URL for another random site. Support for every possible mapping site would require explicit coding for each site.

    I'm sure you could create some sort of script to parse the Bing URL and generate an equivalent Google Maps URL but I can't see it being worth the hassle. Good luck finding someone else to do the work for you. I wish Chrome2Phone would make my espresso too but I doubt that's going to happen either. :D
