In an Android Police report, Google has been testing a new Google Maps interface for Android showing category search suggestions based on where you are looking at the map.

There are search suggestions that display several categories at the top of the map interface:

  • Restaurants.
  • Cafes.
  • Supermarkets.
  • Gas stations.
  • Pharmacies.
  • Hospitals.

The following screen shot is from the blog:

Despite the generic feel to these categories, Google is trying to show a more personalized and localized search options based on where you are on the map and where you’re looking.
