    Excelent idea!

    Do you have gps coordinates (lat/lng) or addresses to the gas stations in your database? Either way, I could hook you up with a function to input the destination into a running instance of iGuidance. I would just rip it out of my iGPOI program I never finished.

    purdoom im researching the way this is working out and due to address discrepancies this isnt going to be easy
    for ex
    251 Route 130 could be:
    251 RT30
    251 SR-30
    251 CR-30
    251 RT30 N
    251 RT 30 S

    and so on
    i can use regular expression pattern matching maybe but its still a bear to tackle

    Excellent idea, I think this what you call thinking outside the box

    lost, you can use Yahoo Maps to calculate the Lat and Lon. It's pretty tolerant when it comes to street name variations. The only downside is you need Internet access but I figure you'll need it for this plugin to work anyway.

    LR:

    If you can pull phone numbers of gas stations, you can put it into superpages reverse lookup at this url:

    http://yellowpages.superpages.com/yp...0&E=&T=&S=&Z=&

    And then view the map view (example is (763) 323-9248 )

    http://yellowpages.superpages.com/li...search=Find+It
    http://yellowpages.superpages.com/su...e=MN&zip=55303

    And into the URL of the map is some gps coordinates. Can you screenrip that?
