- Use Galileo as default map app for Geosphere

In the geocaching app Geosphere you can create custom bookmarks which pass the Lat/Lon coördinates through to your map-app. In my case this is of course Galileo. What are the parameters for the Galileo maps. e.g.: galileo://?[LAT]&[LON]&[Z=15] or something like that. Great if you could help me out.

In other words (another user's idea)

Create a custom URL handler for displaying coordinates linked from other apps.

Hello. Thanks for using Galileo.

Galileo supports GeoURI scheme both with geo: and galileo: prefixes. So you could write link as geo:48.198634,16.371648 or galileo:48.198634,16.371648 for Vienna.

Great, this works. Thx. It would be nice to know how to add a placemark ([WAYPOINT]?) and zoomfactor. But maybe I'm wanting just too much ;-)

Kees, it is not supported yet. But this idea is well worth considering.
