Open URL (Google Maps) not working in iOS any more...

Hi,

I've been using an 'Open URL' script to generate a Google Map pushpin based on Lat & Lon co-ordinates and it's been working fine for a year or so. In fact, it still works fine on my Macbook and a PC but there is an "Opening Failure" on iPads and iPhones.

 

Here's my script:

 

User Interface: Contract (Info) ¬ Open Google Map

Allow User Abort [ Off ]

If [ IsEmpty ( Site::Info MapReference ) ]

Show Custom Dialog [ Title: "Oops!"; Message: "Sorry, that field is empty..."; Default Button: “OK”, Commit: “Yes” ]

Else

Open URL [ "http://local.google.com/maps?v=3&" & "q=" & Site::Info MapReference

/*"http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?" & "q=" & Site::Info MapReference*/ ]

[ No dialog ]

End If

 

Can anyone see anything wrong here? I'm guessing Google changed something...
