    I have done it before but never remember how to do it. In google maps, when I have a destination, how do I get to the location information so I can see their phone number and other info. I'd love any help thanks

    Just search for the destination while in maps, then tap on the bubble that pops up with the name of the destination.

    But see I try that after doing the show route, clicking on the bubble just takes me to the text directions, but not the phone number or anything like that which I could really use

    Are you looking for the phone/navigation bubble? You can add that by going to:

    Menu> More> Labs> Bubble Buttons.

    That will add the phone bubble and navigation bubble to most search results.

    I'm not sure why touching the bubble doesn't give you any info. For me it pulls up reviews, the address, business details, photographs and the phone #.

    edit:

    Try touching the bubble before you show directions.

    Alright sort of figured it out. O have to go through search, not get directions. Don't like that but it works
