Support for Geo URI not working

Please add support for geo uri on Android

when i click on a geo uri link to view a location on a map, Locus should be one option.

e.g. <a href="geo:29.629138,79.841337">View on map</a>

right now, my Android shows me the following option:

-Earth (google earth)

-Maps (google maps)

-RMaps

but no Locus...

Hello Tristan,


are you using latest version of Locus? I'm asking because Locus should already be able to correctly handle such URI.

Thanks tristan for sample page. Appreciate it!


Locus indeed already had support for Geo URI anyway one missing parameter caused that it worked only if Locus was called directly from any app and not from web browser. Fixed, thanks!
