Indicated by the red arrow, a Google Search app-generated button for “District Taco“, (a local eatery with wifi pw guacamole and used as an innocent search target :) using the Google Search app (Android, iOS) will save a mini-map button to your home screen… iPhone 4 shown.

Search first time for whatever you want, object is to generate that button, which will take you to that good ‘ol Google Maps mobile friendly place—with car, transit, walk, pics, the whole works.

Until Apple finishes the spinning and triage for their new map system, this will do fine.
