This is a new feature and alone makes upgrading from Google Local Mobile to Google Maps Mobile worth it. YMMV.
I have a 7290 but can see a detail tab when I push 1 for options. That's the idea but I play with Google maps more for geography than for directions. I like to type in a place like Spain and would love to learn a bit about the place.
