Finding Local Businesses

You can also use Google Maps to find local business in your current area. Just generate a map for the area, display the Google Maps menu, and select Find Business. When prompted, enter the type of or name of the business you’re looking for. Google will now display matching businesses on the map itself; press the number for a given business to display more information.

You don’t have to use Google Maps to find local businesses, however. Google offers a local search service that can be accessed from Google’s search function. Go to the Google Mobile home page on your phone, select Search, and then enter the name or type of business, followed by a location (city, state, or Zip code). Check the Local Listings option, then click the onscreen Search button. Google will now return a list of businesses in the selected area.

It’s a great way to find the nearest gas station or restaurant while you’re on a road trip!
