The PC Version of Google Maps offers a What's here? feature (giving grid reference in decimal degrees) which is seemingly not available on the Nexus 7.

This is very useful for navigation to locations without a specific street or house number address, e.g. rural areas.

How can this feature be accessed or is there a work around?


Just tap and hold the point of interest on the map, and then tap the location when it pops up. Then select What's nearby?.
