Google maps for Android app not opening address links in email/sms etc


Device: HTC Desire
Carrier: 3 (UK)
Country / Language: English
OS / Browser / build number (if applicable): Android 2.2 Froyo

My other phone is a HTC desire running stock Froyo with maps ver 5.3. My primary phone is a Nexus S.
I search for a places using the Maps app (on Nexus S) and then choose to share via SMS with the Desire. When I open the SMS on the Desire and click on the link it defaults to opening up google maps for mobile web via the HTC browser rather than opening up the maps application.
Anybody else have this problem or know how to resolve? I tried resetting the defaults for the HTC browser but it says that none are set anyhow.

All help welcome.
Thanks
