Google Map Pin

Google is testing displaying a round map pin that has a business photo in the pin itself. This is supposedly working on some Google Maps devices when you request directions.

Khushal Bherwani posted a screenshot on Twitter - I tried to replicate this on my iPhone with the Google Maps app in New York and it would not work. Here is his screenshot:

Even more of a reason to make sure the photos on your business listings look professional.
