    Hi Dan,

    Your iOSMapUrl resolves to '"maps:q=25,25" target="_blank"' and this is not a valid url. You should just have "maps:q=25,25". You can also take a look at the iOS Map Links Documentation for more information regarding valid iOS map urls.

    I hope this was helpful.

    Visit the Telerik Verified Plugins Marketplace and get the custom Cordova plugin you need, already tweaked to work seamlessly with AppBuilder.
