    I am using Filemaker Pro Advanced 11, which allows one to see a Google map of a specific address using the following format.

    "http://local.google.com/maps?" & "q=" & /*Address=*/ "" & "," & /*City=*/ "" & "," & /*State=*/ "" & "," & /*Zip Code=*/ "" & "," & /*Country=*/ ""

    I would like to be able to use this function to search for a location using the GPS coordinates.

    Does anyone know how to format the query to accept GPS coordinates?

    This is a guess, but after the q= you just have to feed in the numbers. For example, Google accepts this:

    /maps?q=38.6,+-122.2

    I'm not sure exactly how the placeholders work, but perhaps something like this:

    Code:
    "http://local.google.com/maps?" & "q=" & LatitudeField & ",+" & LongitudeField
