I've search a restaurant in Maps. It came up nicely and I can navigate their and open their website. How can I call them from Maps? Kind of get their number into the phone application?

(going to their website and copy&pasting [oh, doesn't work :-( ] their number would be tedious)

Usually there is a button right inside the maps application that triggers a call. It's located to the left of the button that opens the website. So calling a place is really very simple and a one-click-experience.

If you don't see this button, probably this one place doesn't have a phone number stored in Here Maps.

You are totally right! Thanks!!! I checked with a different entry.

I think, it would be great to just push the phone number to the phone app so that I can see the number before it gets dialled. Some entries belong to a larger corporation and their phone number might not be a regular landline, but an expensive service phone number (0900...); at least in Germany this happens.

Cool, I didn't even know this was possible. Thanks!
