I have this formula to open up maps:

"http://maps.apple.com/?saddr="& List(",+",NotLeft([Location Address]," "),[Location City/Suburb])&"&daddr="&List(",+",[Site Address], [Site City])

It used to auto-recognise if you were on a PC/Android (and therefore Apple Maps wasn't available) and direct you to google maps.

I'd like to force this to happen by way of a Browser() type function i.e. OperatingSystem()
