Google Local on Your Phone

Along with the mobile-browser option, Google Inc. is adding support for retrieving driving directions through text messaging. Last year, Google began offering a host of mobile search services using SMS (Short Message Service).

I have been using GOOGL or 46645 then a zip code and name of restaurant to find restaurant listings when I am out and about.
