    As in you want to display the Map? or you want GPS coordinate?

    You need to be more clear I think.

    Google Map already available in EspoCRM, I guess you can look through it and see how it work and implement for Apple. But it Apple, I doubt they give out API do they?

    Ah, I suggest you use formula my friend.

    Here do I did mine to Open up a Business Search on my system:

    You can learn how to use formula or testing there. Use Sandbox Formula in the Admin to play around if you like.

    searchEngineAccount = string\concatenate(
    "Apple Search: ", '', billingAddressStreet,
    '\n', "test new line",
    'Waze Search: ', '', billingAddressStreet)​
    I have a new custom field call SearchEngineAccount
    address, most entity have it (Contact/Account)
    \n for new lines
    "test new line" is text you can add
    the URL and search code you have to find out yourself.
    Apply Search: is another text line you can edit, you can add more or less "string\concatenate" if you want.

    As you can see the code contain bug, which you can learn to fix and play. You need a '\n' for new lines.

      Good evening first of all thank you for your very useful answer but I still can't integrate these links in the address on the front-end of the prospect / account / customer?

      Can you help me?
      Thank you very much in advance

    You have to show what you have done! If I don't know what you done so where to start?

    Must learn and test, for all I know you might not even know where the Sandbox is or the Formula page is...
