Get Closest Location

Navigates to the closest location matching the given name (e.g. Costco, gas station, etc.)


Description

Open the shortcut and replace "Gas Station" (in the text field) with wherever you want the shortcut to take you. Or you can put shortcut input there to make this work with other shortcuts.

By default, it will search within an 80 mile radius.

I made this because for some reason Siri doesn't understand the word "closest", and there's no way to sort a list of locations by distance from current location either.

Update 2.0: switched to using google maps so that it can skip the "go" button and start navigating immediately
