How to Create a New Contact from a Location on Nexus 7 Maps App

Nexus 7 provides users with multiple ways to add and create contacts. One of these options is to find a contact on the map. Nexus provides that handy Maps app to find your favorite places. When you use the Maps app to locate a coffeehouse, milliner, or hookah parlor, you can quickly create a contact for that location. Now one of your favorite places also becomes an easily accessible contact.

Follow this simple process to find a contact on the map:

  1. After searching for your location, touch the cartoon bubble that appears on the map.

  2. Touch the Menu button.

  3. Choose Add As a Contact.

  4. If prompted, choose your Google account as the location under which to create the contact.

    You see the New Contact screen, with much of the information already filled in. That’s because the Maps app shared the info with the People app. It’s good when apps play together nicely. The Nexus likes to help make things easier for users.

  5. Optionally, add more information, if you know it.

    Fill in any of the additional fields with relevant contact info.

  6. Touch the Done button.

    The new contact is created.
