    The first way is to tap the leftmost button at the bottom of the screen

    The button has a white circle with a white building inside. This is the scout button, and it will scout the area and provide information about businesses. A list of businesses in the "eat+drink" section will be given.

    Tap any numbered option to get more information about the business
    .
    For this example, Kazbegi, a restaurant, is tapped. On the information screen for Kazbegi, there is the second option that says "directions" and "from my location". It will detect the current location of the phone, so GPS has to be enabled for this application.
