Is there any way to start navigating from external app with ident from my app given a pair of target coordinates ?

    Hi @tdsrhh , I will confirm that with our devs, but yes, this should be possible.
    As far as I know - for instance - we support intent sent from PlugShare app while using Android Auto head unit.

    I will get back to you shortly.

    Yup, it works OK:
    adb shell am start -a android.intent.action.VIEW -d geo:0,0?q=Prosta+51,+Warszawa
    

    or
    adb shell am start -a android.intent.action.VIEW -d geo:0,0?q=$(echo 'Prosta 51, Warszawa' | sed 's/ /\+/g')

    Yes it works perfectly fine. For coordinates, make sure to remove brackets before sending to TomTom. Also only comma between latitude and longitude, remove any spaces.
