    New Google Maps "Send to Device" Feature

    Just noticed a new little Google Maps feature. The business info card now displays a "send to device" link which will send the Google Maps information to a connected device.

    Have you noticed this feature yet? Are there any SEO related uses you can think of for this feature?

    I see it... it sent to my Samsung Galaxy Note3 and in the status bar... I see the name. I click it and it fires up Google Maps with the icon to start navigation.

    If I were at my desktop and wanted this place sent to my phone so I could just go there, it's useful. I like it. Nice find.

    Thanks for post Colan. I saw this come out the other day and meant to share, but didn't get around to it.

    Here is the official announcement from Google Maps.
