Hello there, is there any way to send from a PhoneGap app to a Navigation app on your phone two address (one as the origin and the other as destination)? I need to use the Navigation app to show the route between two directions.

Thanks!

Hello Relez,

 On iOS you can use "map links" that will open the Maps application.

 On Android the Google Maps supports an Intent with the 'geo' url scheme. It seems that Android supports KML files as well, according to this Stack Overflow discussion. You will need the WebIntent plugin in order to send intents in Cordova on Android.

Hello Yavor, thanks for your reply.

I am trying to install the WebIntent plugin on my Icenium project, but it seems to be missing the xml file in the plugin. When I go to Project Properties, and click on Import in Plugins section, it says theres an xml file missing in the plugin.

Am I in the right url plugin or I miss something trying to install it?

Thanks, 
Relez!

This plugin is not plugman compatible as it is and you should create the plugin.xml file and setup the plugin structure yourself. More info is in the docs: http://docs.icenium.com/creating-your-project/using-plugins/using-custom-plugins/using-custom-plugins

Hi Relez,

 The forum thread I linked to has information on what the plugin.xml for the WebIntent plugin should look like. Please check it out.
