    Different Symbols on Google Maps

    Could someone explain the different symbols you sometimes see on Google Maps? Some seem to have a "smiley face," others with what appears to be a key over a car symbol? Is there a list of the various symbols and their significance?

    That's the 1st time I've seen the car + key icon. Not sure what that one means, but the other one is for businesses with favorable reviews.

    Re: Different Symbols on Google Maps

    Hi Michael,

    Google uses little icons instead of the pin for certain business categories. The little handbag usually shows in association with retail locations, a little oxford cap shows for universities, and the little car and key usually shows for car rental locations. There's a number of others as well, but you can usually figure out what they're for between the symbol itself, and the business they're shown for.
