The Link to MapQuest feature
The Link to MapQuest feature does not support addresses outside North America well yet. This will be in an upcoming release. The directions api, however, handles them just fine.

Brian, i have one more

Brian, i have one more question: i tried to find this address in the map (https://www.mapquest.com) to embed it but i can't:

7 St Paul's Yard Silver Street 
Newport Pagnell
Milton Keynes 
MK16 0EG
United Kingdom

I know the address is correct, it's in UK.

 

Is it possible that this address is not in the map?

 

thanks in advance
Fernando

Reduce the address to number,
Reduce the address to number, street, city, postal, and country and it should work better. Try 7 Silver St, Newport Pagnell, MK16 0EG, UK

Brian, is this format the proper way to go when doing queries with:

https://www.mapquest.com/embed/q=

?

Brian, right now this works

Brian, right now this works for us:

 

<iframe class="mapiframe" style="width:480px;height:260px;" src="https://www.mapquest.com/embed?q=1st%20street%20Jacksonville%20FL%203222..." ></iframe>

 

The iframe src has the query like this (url-decoded):

?q=1st street Jacksonville FL 32224 US

 

    - Does this format work for the latest embed API or we need to use a different one?

    - Can we use the same format for UK addresses?

 

thanks
Fernando

This is the proper format, but the MapQuest.com site is not handling locations outside the US/Canada well yet.
