    For whoever may not know; when DM UAV Locator sends you a text with the location of your drone, it sends a link to Google Maps that you would then open in whatever app you like (your browser, Google Maps app etc) along with sending a copy to your email.

    My problem is the SMS text breaks the link at the comma.

    So, a link that should look like this http://maps.google.com/maps?q=41.123803, -75.866465 ....
    instead looks like this http://maps.google.com/maps?q=41.123803, -75.866465

    Essentially the link only provides North while leaving Google without the West.

    Yes I could go to my email and open the link there, that works fine, but I was hoping there was some way to avoid this extra step... like a different texting app?
    I don't know.. just reaching. (and hoping)
