Launch Google Maps

You have a couple of options available to launch Google Maps. Follow the links below to learn more.

Google Maps URLs (recommended)

Using Google Maps URLs, you can build a universal, cross-platform URL to launch Google Maps and perform searches, get directions and navigation, and display map views and panoramic images. These universal URLs allow for broader handling of the maps requests no matter which platform the user is on.

Google Maps URL Scheme for iOS / Universal Links

You can use the Google Maps URL scheme to launch the Google Maps app for iOS and perform searches, get direction requests, and display map views. On a device running iOS 9 and later, you can use Universal Links to launch Google Maps when you have a Google Maps URL.

If you want to embed a map in your app, please refer to the Google Maps SDK for iOS guide to getting started.
