Clicking on address results in "Unsupported link" using Google Maps

Joe Salazar Oct 28, 2015 11:55AM PDT

Was working as recently as a week ago.
Whenever I tap the address on my phone Google Maps starts up but gives the following error:

"Unsupported link
Google Maps can't open this link"

If I select chrome address and that maps opens fine but I need to be able to navigate quickly to the addresses selected.

Thank you.

I use batchgeo on a daily basis through the mobile app. I was very convenient, just double click on the point on the map and "Boom" it launches my google map app and on to my appointment. Now I'm getting "Google map can't open this link". It will pull up google maps on my chrome browser, but i need to use my GPS while I'm driving not turn by turn directions. I just signed up for a free trial with "Badger" because I can't go without this Option. Please fix this.... I have used batchgeo almost everyday for three yrs I need this to work plz.

Hi Joe -
Can you send us some details such as what type of phone you are using and if the link is opening in native google maps app or in safari browser version.

I'm having the same issues stated before. I looooved the fact that I could easily jump from Batchgeo to maps and directions.

I have an Android HTC One. It is supposed to open in my google maps app.

Here is a link of the last map i created and it is still not working.

Please help us!

We made some changes that we are hoping will fix this. Make sure when the link opens you chose to open the link in the Google Maps app if given the choice.

Let us know if its working or not. Thanks!

I am having the same issue. I am trying to share a link from my mobile phone to another person on thier pbone, however it says it's unsupported. I sent it to my other phone which opens up just fine.

If you send people just the map link then they should be able to open in any browser.

When you get the response unsupported, what type of device is being used and what browser.

I am having the same problem. When I get the following link in a TXT on my Samsung (Galaxy s5) it won't open in Google Maps. If I manually paste into Chrome, then works fine, but if opens in Google Maps directly, then get
"Unsupport Link
Google Maps can't open this link"
I know not using Batchgeo (or don't think we are) but wonder if you have any thoughts?
