iPhone owners who have the iPhone 3.0 OS can now use Google Search with My Location, via the Safari browser.
To benefit from the service, visit google.com from Safari and turn on the My Location feature. To update your location, simply tap on the “update” link.
When everything’s set, the results displayed after you search something via Google will be according to your location – the nearest restaurants, the nearest clubs, local weather and so on.
Of course, when you don’t want Google to use your location, you can turn off the feature from the Preferences tab.
For the moment, Google Search with My Location for iPhone 3.0 is available only in the US and the UK (in English, of course).
