    Open google maps within Phonegap 7

    piero.alberto Level 1

      Hi all,


      with the previous Phonegap version, I used to open google maps from the app simply opening with an href an url, like this Google Maps


      But I noticed, with Phonegap 7, that when I tap on the href element, nothing happens. Why?


      How can I fix this and open google maps with a given itinerary?

          It might help to see your config.xml file (be sure to scrub it of any sensitive/private info).

              Using the plugin "InAppBrowser" is the solution
