And what is "the map" - an image? A link? Something else?
The thing most likely to happen is my friend would call me (voice) with a particular
place she interests in, then I send out a map (image to her phone), and a link will suit me fine too...
Amy rings in and asks for Mary's Address.
I searched in google map (probably stored in a db also), and send it to
Amy's cell phone, and she can immediately see
where Mary's place is.
Hope you get what I mean

You could use email to send the a Google Maps link, or send an SMS (maybe with a shortened link) if you have signed up with an SMS provider. There is no way to send something directly to a mobile phone.
Ulf, I wonder what GCM is....
To be honest, the phone user can't type really that well.
That's why I am asking
