Bug Description

As a user, I would like to use my GPS to get directions to an address without first having to look up the lat/lon of this address. I think there are free/open location lookup services that can convert street address to lat lon.

The new route finding procedure would be something like this:

if endpoint is not lat lon
  look up lat/lon for endpoint
  endpoint = result
get route to endpoint
