This feature is now part of the default contacts application on OSX 10.8 (thought it was there since 10.6, but can't confirm). Simply click the label to the left of the address and click "Map this address" or highlight the address, right click and choose "Search Address in Google Maps." Not sure why an updated installer for 10.9 was needed as this plugin is obsolete.

I'm on 10.6 and it's in Address Book. Hover over the label (e.g., "home", "work") of an address to highlight both label and address, then (left-)click for a menu that has a "Map this Address" selection, OR control+click while a complete address is highlighted and the popup menu includes a "Show Map…" selection. Either menu selection opens a browser on Google Maps at that address.

Good stuff...although it gets installed without any hint to the user...later the user is prompted to donate.

Not. Cool.

I find that it only works once. I have to close Address Book and then open it again to do another search.

I just found that using my Microsoft two button mouse, that if I highlight the complete address and then right click, that it works.

This is one heck of a time-saver—no more cut and pasting addresses in Google maps! Sure, Address Book does mapping, but not directions, Google Earth, or Google Prefs. This app does all that and more. Works beautifully and seamlessly with Apple Address Book. So far completely stable. I use it every day.

This is one of three excellent Apple Address Book plugins that I use. The other two (one also by this developer) are:

Post Check by Brian Toth
Address Book Dates by Josef W. Wankerl

All three make for a better Address Book Experience. Google Maps Plugin quickly adds pertinent information to your Google Maps search.

"Google Maps is already the default service used for map lookups in Address Book."

That is true, but the built-in service only provides a link to the Google map ('Map this Address'). 'Google Maps Plugin 2.7.1' also provides the following services:

- Google Directions (which lets you plug in a second address for directions)
- Locate in Google Earth (launches Google Earth version of map)
- Google Preferences (a whole bunch of useful additions, such as displaying phone number on the map listing).
- Google Map for [Address Book Entry] - whatever Preference options you set are available with this option. If you option to use the built-in plain vanilla 'Map This Address' option, it's still there, which is very thoughtful of the Google people.

On both my Macs, one running Leopard and and the other running Snow Leopard, Google Maps is already the default service used for map lookups in Address Book.

While the developer deserves kudos for bringing this functionality to earlier versions, I don't think there is any need for this plugin going forward.

Mr. Developer (Brian Toth), is this true? Is there any need or advantage to installing/using this for those of us using 10.5.x or higher?

Everytime I click on the label to the left of the address, Apple's Address Book quits.
