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 <a href="https://plus.google.com/u/0/111401917971052287374">Google Maps</a>.

And here is the help doc: <a href="https://support.google.com/maps/answer/6081481?hl=en">Send a place to your mobile device - Google Maps Help</a>
