How to Open and Get Google Maps Directions Using Apple's Siri for iPhone, iPad and iPod?

Apple's Siri is only capable to launch Apps into iPhone, iPad and iPod but it can't pass parameters but by creating a contact card containing our custom built URL Scheme we can actually make Apple's Siri to display the contact card and allow us to simply tap the link address that will open Google Maps App and pass in our directional parameters. So how we will do it? Follow our steps and guide below.

Step 1: First you have to be sure that Google Maps is installed on your iPhone, iPad and iPod devices, otherwise this tutorial won't work. If Google Maps is not installed, than you can install it from Here.

Step 2: Open the Contacts app and press the ‘+‘ button to add a new contact. Give the contact a name and select the Homepage field in preparation for adding the URL scheme that will invoke Maps.

Step 3: The Google Maps app recognizes the starting address (saddr), destination address (daddr), directions mode, (directionsmode) and map mode (mapmode) paramaters. Say, for example, we wanted driving directions from our current location to The Grand Canyon using satellite and standard map modes we would enter the following URL in the homepage field: comgooglemaps://?saddr=&daddr=The+Grand+Canyon&directionsmode=driving&views=satellite&mapmode=standard
Note: The actual required destination would need to be added in place of The Grand Canyon used in the example above. This could be your home address that would allow you to always get directions home from the current location. Google Maps is also smart enough to recognize a blank starting address parameter, which means that we want it to take the current location as the starting address for directions.
Step 4: Save the contact, invoke Siri and give the order to call the name that you saved the contact under. When Siri replies saying there is no number associated with that particular entry, simply tap the homepage link in the calling card and it will open up Google Maps and provide the route with the passed in parameters.

Step 3: Pass in the same URL as in the Siri example above, with the only difference being that we will replace the destination address (daddr) with the [prompt] paramater: comgooglemaps://?saddr=&daddr=[prompt]&directionsmode=driving&views=satellite&mapmode=standard

Step 4: Setting the [prompt] parameter will open up the keyboard entry within Launch Center Pro and allow us to manually specify a destination address.
