I just thought this was cool but in case you get lost you can do this to get to your destination:

1.) Grab your latitude and longitude coordinates from your phone (assuming you have gps in your phone) You want it in this format and not in degrees: Latitude = 32.8906, Longitude = -117.2367

2.) Send a text to Google SMS in the following format to GOOGLE (466453): "LAT LONG to DESTINATION"

So for example, I'll send a sms text with the message:

"32.8906 -117.2367 to Westminster, CA"

to 466453 so I can get sms reply from Google giving me step-by-step directions.


Good luck!
