No, as I recall, we just tried entering the name with voice on Yelp. I will try the POI on the NAV page next time but, I wanted to see if we could do this "on the move." Did not want to type a destination while driving...in fact, I don't even know if you can. I certainly have a lot to learn with this system.

At first, we tried entering the name using the Voice Recognition button on the steering wheel with the Yelp page displayed. It kept switching to random Sirius channels. Then we tried using the microphone icon next to the search box on the Yelp page. We got plenty of results, but not what we wanted. I don't think we ever got it to recognize "Cherry."

Siri was simple...push one button, say "give me directions to Cherry Cricket." That's it! It was actually less than 10 seconds and my iPhone was giving me voice directions and a map to the restaurant.

I strongly suspect that businesses who want to appear on Yelp must have to pay, as trying to find local restaurants just coughs up ones I can't stand, and won't bring up ones within as close as 1-2 blocks.

I want Google Maps, please...
It is distressing to learn that such poor information is returned by Yelp. The Uconnect system appears to be making poor choices in database selection. Even cheap Nav systems appear better.

If Yelp is using yellow book for POI that is sad. How good is UConnect in accepting addreses such as go to 1234 Mary St, Saint John Arkansas?
At least that way one could call ahead using cell and get address of POI.
