Quick Lon /Lat look-up on Google Maps

You'll first need to look up an address, but this trick only works if the address is centered (it's centered by default). So, moving the map around will not make this work. When the address you want to find latitude and longitude for is dead center, copy and paste this code into your browser bar:

javascript:void(prompt('',gApplication.getMap().getCenter()));


Longistude and Latitude will auto-magically appear in popup.

Even better, you can add it as a favourite (bookmark or whatever) and hey presto, one click and you have the coordinates.
