Location Autocomplete in Google Calendar

Location Autocomplete in Google Calendar (JEH: This is a key reason why you should complete a free Google Places listing, that is, the official Google Maps listing for your business. Based on my recent experience, the autocomplete feature only works via the browser-based version of Google Calendar (not functional via Android/mobile yet). However, that is reason enough to use your browser to create appointments because you can enter your firm (example of our own Places listing) or business name in the "Location," and Google will translate it to allow your client or colleague to navigate merely by clicking the Places/Maps link in the calendar entry or reminder. Incidentally, this functionality also works well if you are meeting someone at a restaurant or any other location that has a Google Places/Maps listing.)
