Google Maps Bookmarklet

Until Google Maps allows you to save locations, a bookmarklet (tested in Firefox and Safari) is in order.

Google Directions

To use:

  1. Drag the link below to your bookmarks
  2. Edit the URL to put in your own address
  3. Go to
  4. Click the bookmarklet

What it does:

  1. Activate the directions tab
  2. Fill the ‘start’ field with your address
  3. Set focus to the ‘end’ field

Hope someone else finds it useful.
