I am developing a desktop application for a customer that wants to use a "from" address and a "to" address to calculate a route for a driver.  We have success displaying the "from" address or "to" address on www.maps.google.com but cannot determine how to send the string to google to calculate the route.  Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

The following is the current code:

    Private Sub cmdMap_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles cmdMap.Click
        Process.Start("http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&geocode=&q=" & txtTo.Text & "+" & txtToCity.Text & "+" & txtToZip.Text)
    End Sub
