By letting the address field in Android’s calendar be linked to Google Maps and Navigation, it’s easier than ever before to find your way to your meetings and appointments. However, what if your phone could give you an optimal route automatically to your upcoming meetings right before you’re about to leave? Well, now with an advanced Tasker script, you can.
User brandall over on the XDA-Developer forums has created a detailed tutorial that will automatically use Google Maps to calculate the best route to your next meeting as well as the time involved, and will give you the information five minutes before you have to leave. To do this, you’ll need Tasker, a Google Calendar account and the Minimalistic Text widget. The thread also has ZIP files that include the scripts as well, should you wish to import them. This looks like a very nifty tool if you use Tasker to automate functions on your phone and while I don’t see myself using it, I could see where this would be very handy indeed.
