    If I choose send to phone on the Google Maps site on my PC I get a text message with 2 links. The first will open Google Maps on the Droid. The second will open the Google Maps site in a browser.

    If I choose send to email I can choose how I want to open the link in gmail (I don't think I have a default browser set though) and can open the link in Google Maps on my Droid.

    In short, you want to open the link in Google Maps on your Droid, not in a browser. You can't navigate from the browser AFAIK.
