How to send map locations to contacts bb10

I am wondering if anyone knows how to send your mapping location to a contract using BlackBerry maps on BlackBerry 10?

I haven't found a way to do that in the BB10 Maps.

Re: How to send map locations to contacts bb10

I don't see that as an option to send your map location to a contact. The only way you can do is to do a screen capture of your location in the map (Up and Down volume keys together) then email or text, or bbm the image to a contact.

It's done through BBM now. Open a BBM chat with the contact you'd like to send your location to, hide the keyboard and tap on Attach. Then select Location, and you can send your location this way.

Thanks greggov, I've put this on the list as a feature request... to share from the Map app itself.

I agree...it's the first place I looked too. Maps seems a little bare bones at the moment. I'd say it would be more intuitive to do it from the map too (if you're looking at the map and want to send your location, you shouldn't have to leave the app to do it) Although I suppose having the choice in BBM is ok as well.
