I want to write an NFC Tag on a sticker with something that will directly open Google Maps driving directions to a specific address. I've tried using "NFC Tasks" / "NFC Tools", but haven't found any preset that seems to fit the bill. These come close:
- "Address: Open an address"; and
- "Geolocation: Open an geolocation".
But obviously those tasks don't open driving directions.
To clarify, on my Nexus 5 with Android 6.0 (but also on 5.x if I remember correctly) I have the option to include a Maps widget on my home screens that do exactly this. When adding such a widget I get this settings screen:
Clicking this widget does what it says on the tin: fires off driving directions.
With NFC Tasks you can write URLs, so I tried writing:
But that opens Google Maps in a browser, not the Maps application itself.
With NFC Tasks you can also write custom data, but I wouldn't know how to format my custom data for this specific task. The "Pro" version of the tool can write "Send Intent" tasks to tags, but I can't figure out if that's what I need (before I go out and buy the pro version).
I've gone through the suggested duplicates and similar questions, but found no relevant info.
Bottom line: How do you write Driving Directions to a specific location onto an NFC tag?
