Write a mortscript, probably easiest thing to do.

Re: Question: How to launch Google Maps with "Use GPS" turned on

hes talking about the option in google maps. normally you have to open google maps and go into the menu and tell it to start tracking off the gps. it has nothing to do with the gps switcher. you'd either have to write a script for it or tell google to build the option in to turn it on automatically

Re: Question: How to launch Google Maps with "Use GPS" turned on

I was thinking there may already be a command line option to do this. Something like googlemaps.exe /USEGPS for example.

ive been thinking the same. google maps doesnt not have a hardware key associated with Use GPS, only my location, but if it did i bet a mortscript wouldnt be too hard to slap together. ive been writing a lot lately, but ill see if there is a menu item select command.

Nick

I did not see any command for that last time I looked over the mortscript command list.

But then again back then I was not searching for it or a fix for this issue/request.
