    How about using a standalone program like Google Maps for driving directions, then it will have its own icon.

    Re: Can i create a shortcut ?

    I imagine you could create an application to open the browser to a specific bookmark using the Blackberry Java Development Environment and the Java SDK, but that's beyond my capabilities currently. I don't know of any existing app that will allow you to do this, but that's not to say one doesn't exist. But it can't be done from the BB itself.

    Hope this helps.
    Rcbjr.
