Yahoo Go 3.0 Map Search

Local & Maps searches for and provides information and images specific to a location or business. The results of the search show up on the display as a

map with pinpoint links to a list of items including:
  • web sites
  • mobile-friendly web sites
  • businesses with addresses, telephone numbers, driving directions, maps, and ratings and reviews

Results will vary based on what you search for and the location set. Local & Maps remembers the last location mapped so that you can get the information again immediately.

Other ways to get information relevant to a location are listed at the Local & Maps position of the carousel:

  • Map View for the location at the top of the display
  • City guide about places to eat, drink, stay, visit, shop and more
  • Find nearby... with lists of categorized goods and services
  • Driving directions for turn-by-turn instructions for getting from A to B
  • Traffic Watch where you can check traffic incidents for your location and for special routes you define.

*Local & Maps is only available in versions for the United States of America currently.

If your device has GPS, you can use it with Local & Maps.
