Open Maps from Mobile App to navigate to address

It would be nice to be able to navigate to a given company address by tapping on the address under properties even if all it did was sent you to a third party app such as google maps or apple maps.

Hey there:

 

When you're currently on the Mobile App, you can pull up a contact and call them.

 

It would be awesome to pull up the address and get directions Smiley Happy

 

Cheers,

It would be highly useful for sales reps in the field to be able to launch google maps from either a company or contact profile by clicking on or tapping on (mobile app) street address.

I'm on the road daily, so my laptop isn't always easity useable.  I think it would be very helpful, as well as much safer, if you could through the hubspot app click on a company, click on address, and it automatically open up in google maps or the like to help me get to my location.  While on the road this is much safter than having to navigate from app to app, then type in an address.

 

Also, route planning.  Be super helpful if through the software, or even the app be able to select any number of companies, and then it automatically plans out the most effiecient route.  Be a total game changer and help out tremendously with my day to day.

 

just an idea...

Think about when you receive a text message from someone and they text you the address and phone number of a place to meet. By tapping on the address that address gets pulled into google maps and the user can then use the gps device to get driving directions to their destination. Same with the phone number by simply tapping the number the user can call the location. 

 

On the Hubspot App it would work similarly. The user dives into a contact or company and by tapping on the associated phone number can call them or by tapping on the address have it populate in google maps or the apple map app.

While developing this, could you implement the address "auto-complete", like google maps, where the system starts pulling up addresses as you type?

@hvy_weight that is a great idea, I have used an app for route planning called road warrior that does something similar and it makes it so much easier to input addresses and a lot of the time you can input the name of a company and it will pull the address in for you.

This is similar to my suggestion. I think Hubspot should integrate with Google Maps too...but so should all softwares. Location is huge. Route planning and just simple access to GPS through Hubspot is a great idea. I also think it would be swell if Hubspot had a Google Maps plug in where each company was put onto a map. It's simple, but the CRM database is not the most educational if it isn't visual and like I said, location is huge. With conferences all over the country, speaking gigs, and branches to different companies spread across the nation, having the companies mapped out would be informative and efficient and it doesn't seem that crazy of an idea. We could really maximize our ROI if we knew where our clients and prospects were in just one click with one single shot of the entire nation. Rather than, filtering for cities and states, several times. Hopefully they get it done!
