Display a map from an iOS FireMonkey application

Q: How do you display a map on the iPhone using FireMonkey?
A: By opening a URL formatted like so - http://maps.google.com/maps?q=LOCATION

Below is a short snippet that will do show a map of the Embarcadero Scotts Valley offices.

Enjoy!

{$IFDEF FPC}
{$mode objfpc}{$H+}
{$modeswitch objectivec1}
{$ENDIF}

interface

uses
SysUtils, Types, UITypes, Classes, Variants, FMX_Types, FMX_Controls, FMX_Forms,

{$ENDIF}
;

type
TForm1 = class(TForm)
Button1: TButton;
procedure Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
private
{ Private declarations }
public
{ Public declarations }
end;

var
Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.lfm}

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
