    Is there an app that will give you directions from "my location" to a latitude and longitude? Google Maps does not seem to have this ability.

    Geo Pointe might be it. I'll test it out.

    What did you try in Google Maps? It works for me. I think you just have to make sure you have coordinates that more or less correspond to an actual road.

    How so? You can enter lat & long for a destination.

    I mean, I just entered 29° 25′ 32″ N, 98° 29′ 10″ W (29.425556, -98.486111) would work as well, based on prior experience) for the Alamo in San Antonio as a destination and had no problems getting directions.

    It does require data coverage though. A geocaching/tracking type of app might be better suited.

    I personally use google maps on my droid while at work to figure if a geocaching puzzle answer is plausible. Use the layout of Serach: n 29° 25.320 W 098° 29.100. The google maps tends to come up with the nearest address, but usually has a green arrow at the actual coordinates.
