if you create a new calendar entry and put in a location, save it and select the entry in the calendar app. The location will be shown with a special icon in front.

It would be great if the default navigation app is opened when clicking the icon.

Otherwise you have to do these 5 steps:

  • edit the entry
  • copy the address
  • close calendar app/swipe in background
  • open navigation app
  • and paste it in the address bar...
edit retag flag offensive close delete



great idea!!!

... and then we only need here maps with voice navigation :-)

Already though I am to stupid. The icon left to a location tag really implies that one can tip on that thing!!!! I wonder that this is not implemented because it works fine from an address book entry

I think it used to work, just needs the right mapping app to begin with. i am not a fan of Here since its blosted slow and buggy.

Maps.Me has been pretty reliable and works great, the problem is that there are no sleek SFOS nstive mapping apps currently that could be put in.

@DarkTuring What about modRana and Poor Maps ? Together with OSM Scout Server they are very powerful (offline maps, POI, routing, etc.).
