More Mobile Access to Yahoo! Local Content: Driving Directions

About three weeks ago I posted about every entry in the Yahoo! Local directory including a link to send the address/phone number with just one-click to a cell phone or mobile device as a text message (SMS). I've used it several times and it works very well.

Today, news of another new service.

It's now possible to send driving directions to your cell phone or mobile device with just one-click. One important note, in addition to being able to receive text messages, you'll also need a mobile web browser.

Here's how it works:
After entering your starting and destination location click the "get directions" button. Above the map look for the link labeled, "send to mobile phone." Enter the phone number where you would like the directions sent. That's it. In a few seconds, a text message containing a direct link to the specific directions will arrive. Click the link and the directions appear in your mobile web browser. Drive safely!
