...you'll also be able to see a breakdown of zip code starting points for driving direction requests to your business. To protect privacy, we aggregate these requests at the zip code level. If you hover over the counts inside the map, we'll highlight the area represented by that count.
While they couldn't track anything like this via IP, using locations entered in driving directions is an ingenious workaround.

I am logging into the local business center, but I still don't see those 'view reports' links. I'm in Japan, and I've tried proxying my connection to the US. That didn't show anything different. It may be a slow rollout.
