A link like this used to work up until the latest revamp of Google Maps (before July 2013):
What it did was to show a map with a pin placed at the provided lat/lng coordinates showing up with the given description text.
The plus of this "address format" was to place a pin "adjusted" exactly where you wanted it to be and still provide a meaningful description (like an address which would otherwise not be recognized and/or misplaced via a normal address-only search query).
Same goes for native mobile apps on iPhone/iPad and Android devices. It worked up until Google pushed the new native apps version out (before mid-July 2013), now it doesn't anymore.
Anyone knows if there is a workaround and/or a new or alternate format to obtain the same results with a single link?
Also, I know just providing the coordinates with no description works, but I do need both the coordinates and the description (so basically something that behaves like it did before the update).
Further clarification: Static Maps API would not work. I'm looking for a link that brings up the Google Maps Web Application.
Just showing a marker at a given lat/lng is trivial (just ?q=lat,lng and you have it). What I want to accomplish is showing a marker ALONG WITH a description in the new google maps webapp.
