    Default How to start GPS and Directions with one shortcut?

    Hi all,

    A few years ago I had an app that could do 1 or more commands with one shortcut but I'll be darned if I can remember the name!

    I mainly wanted to use it to start GPS and start Directions with one click. At the time it wasn't able to do that within the app because the GPS always had to show the disclaimer screen and be confirmed.

    But now I think that went away in the GPS (yay), but I can't remember the app I used to do that. Any suggestions?

    BTW, my phone is NOT rooted and I prefer not to!

    Thanks all...

    Still can do it with Tasker. Or even an NFC tag.
    Tasker still works without root. I have it launch waze when I get in my car.

    Go to your widgets. There's a directions widget, once you drag it to your home screen then you'll put in the address.
