I've searched Google Maps for a business. I've found it. I'm looking at the popup/bubble/whatever on the map, for that business.

Is there something I can from this point to quickly get that business added to my Google Contacts?

Only way I can see at the moment is to send yourself an email, then import the contact details from the email? –  glasnt Jul 15 '10 at 3:04
    
That's a shame. Golden opportunity here, Google! –  Al E. Aug 27 '10 at 15:55

I just checked and you can on the latest version of Maps on Android. If I wanted to save the contact to my contacts I would use "Chrome to Phone" to get the map on my phone, tap on the location to get the details page for that location and scroll down to "Add as a Contact".

Sadly this is not possible anymore because they removed the add to contacts from maps in the newest version. Or I can't find it anymoare. –  Janusz Jan 28 at 9:50
    
@Janusz Not surprised . . . in the age of constant updates and "ALL NEW" it seems that losing some feature you like is the norm. –  tooshel Jan 29 at 16:31

This is how I would do. It is not a direct add, but better than tedious copy paste.

Copy Ctrl + C each item one by one using clipboard manager (ClipDiary) (I already have it installed). I don't loose already copied item when I press Ctrl + C next time. ClipDiary remembers it. Now open up Gmail contacts and paste one after another save contact.

Found a couple other ways. You can "Star" it in Google maps on your PC. "Star" icon is directly under the little RED bubble balloon thing on the far left side of the local listing. Once you star it, it saves that to "My Places"(as long as you are signed into a gmail acct) Using your phone now Open Google Maps, and look at the map and find the star. You will be able to touch on it to pull up that listing. Then hit the settings button and then touch "Add As a Contact" or another way is to Just click the Local tab on www.google.com to see starred items and quickly find hours, reviews, and phone numbers. This is still not as efficient as a simple "ADD to contacts" feature from maps on the PC. Unless i missed something. Please post if you know a quicker way.
