Google Maps: Drag and Search

Google Maps just added a feature that MapQuest has had for some time: search along a route. As you drag the map, it populates with business locations based on the query:

This is on top of the ability to display multiple search results at the same time:

These multiple layers or results are preseved as you drag the map as well. Google is also adding layers to mobile maps.

    Not sure I understand your first bit, showing lots of results as you move around has been implemented for a while

    The ability to display multiple ‘maps’ at once has been made much easier which is what makes it most useful – see the results at the same time as the directions route.

    Until the past couple weeks, don’t remember being able to move map and having it populate with results based on the existing query/queries.
