There is nothing I hate more than lazy listing agents. And then sellers wonder why their homes don't sell.

Anyone with a smart phone just has to click on the address and their phone will take them there.

But for many of our properties we need to send waypoints or shapefiles since there is no address.

That's just agents being lazy with other agents.  I've done it once or twice years ago, but now give very basic two street out directions.  Mine usually confuse because I give directions like "Turn North" instead of turn left.   :)
