How to Create a Contact from a Map on a Galaxy Tab

By Dan Gookin

When you use the Maps app on the Samsung Galaxy Tab to locate a coffee house, apothecary, or parole office (or all three in one place), you can quickly create a contact for that location. Here’s how:

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

    You see more details for the location on the left side of the screen.


  2. Touch the More button.

  3. Choose Add As a Contact.

    You see the New Contact screen with much of the information already filled-in. That’s because the Maps app shared that info with the Contacts app. It’s good when the apps play together nicely.

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

    Use the chevron (down-arrow) buttons when you don’t see enough fields to add information required for a contact.

    Touching the triangle buttons displays pop-up menus from which you can choose various options, such as setting whether a phone number or an e-mail address is Home, Business, or what have you.

  5. Touch the Done button.

    The new contact is created.
