Default GoogleMaps syntax via BB Maps syntax

Please Login to Remove!

I am looking for some info re the URL syntax for Google Maps ( for use on a blackberry that has google maps installed)

Suppose I have a location described as follows ( no address - just XY coordinates):

Lat = 45.37174
Lon= 75.64713
Name of location= Office

If I want to display the above on the BB using Blackberry maps, the syntax is simply:
maps.BlackBerry.com?lat=45.37174&lon=-75.64713&z=1&label=Office

What would the syntax be for Google Maps?

I tried the following - it works but I donít get the arrow or the label (as I donít know the syntax):
maps.google.ca/maps?&ll=45.37174,-75.64713

( P. S. I donít have Google maps installed on BB - I am trying to provide something to a guy at work who only has Google maps ( and not BB Maps)

If someone can tell me how to expand the syntax to show the arrow/label, that would be great.

Many thanks

Default

Did some more googling and am ALMOST there..

If I use this, I get the arrow and the label, but I also get the decimal version of the XY on the label ( would like to supress the latter) and jsut show the name of the location:

maps.google.ca/maps?q=45.37174,-75.64713%20(Head+Office)
