I searched on YouTube, and find another command "XY". but none of them working. Please can u help me to find out how this will work?

Answer
Hi Othman,

One way we can do this by sending http link to the browser, we need to do some automation like below (But it may or may not give proper results)

1. You have to monitor the mouse movement or mouse picked location in auto CAD
2. Convert the coordinates to the lat long information
3. Open the url in the browser with the lat long (x,y) information on Google map as mentioned in below
http://maps.google.com/?q=<lat>,<lng>
http://maps.google.com/?q=-15.623037,18.388672

I think this might be help you to fulfill your requirement.

Please don't hesitate to ask any more information required.
