Google Maps: Driving Directions Using Query String Parameters

Passing few query string parameters can land the user on the Google Maps Page with Driving Directions.

Examples:
1) https://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&saddr=New%20Ringgold,%20PA,%20USA&daddr=Allentown,%20PA,%20USA
2) https://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&saddr=17960&daddr=17980

f: stands for “form” and controls the style of query form to be displayed.
f=d: Displays the “directions” form (two input boxes: from, to).
saddr: “saddr” source address. Use this when asking for driving directions.
daddr: “daddr” Destination address(es). Use this when asking for driving directions.
