Google’s GOOG-411 is great for travelers. It’s simple, fast, totally free. Just store 800-GOOG-411 (800-466-4411) in your mobile phone. Provide the location (city and state) and business information by speaking clearly into the phone. Once the information is obtained, Google provides three options to users:
- Google will automatically connect the caller to the business at no cost
- If your mobile device includes text messaging, Google will provide further details on the business by sending a text message to you. Simply say “text message”
- If you have an Internet capable mobile device, Google will send a map of the area to the users cell phone by saying “Map It”
UPDATE: Google has since removed their GOOG411 service.
