The Google Mobile Blog recently reported the launch of “Search with My Location” for iPhone 3.0. With the help of this feature, iPhone users will be able to locate specific location without inserting the exact place where they are. It automatically identifies the location of a user, and gives names of restaurants, bars or other establishments when using generic terms.

For instance, when you search for “jazz” clubs, it will display all the jazz clubs near the user's location. At present, this feature is only available for U.K and U.S iPhone users.

In order to use this feature, visit www.google.com from your iPhone's Safari browser and click on the “My Location” link. To update the screen, just point to the “update” link and it will display your location on the homepage.

Google also promises not to use a user's location in search to protect privacy of users. If you want to disable this feature just select the “Preferences”option given below the Google mobile homepage.
