Google adds maps to its 411

In April, Google launched its own 411 voice search (1.800.GOOG.411). New to the lineup is the ability to add maps to your search. You proceed with the search as you normally would, but at some point, say “map it” to get a text message sent to your phone with details of your search, as well as a link that your phone can take you to so you can see the actual map. And, unlike many carrier 411 searches, Google’s is free for US listings. Well played.
