    I want to do two things with my iPhone that I've never understood how to accomplish.

    First, I want an app where I can say, "find me a (insert business name) on my way to (insert location)". The result is, for example, a Starbucks that is actually on the way to where I'm already going, instead of one that's behind me.

    Second, I want an app where I can say, "give me directions to the Starbucks that is at/near (insert cross streets)." The result is, for example, a Starbucks that is across town (that would not have appeared in my results if I had just asked for a Starbucks locations that were close to me).

    They seem like such simple features, yet I have never found them.

    Of course I have tried. Endlessly, as a matter of fact. Can't get it to happen.

    Have you tried?

    I don't use Siri, not that I haven't tried it out. Youre right though seems simple.

    Points of interest along a predefined navigational route can be done with 3rd party apps like Navigon (the one I use).

    Not sure if Siri integrates with Navigon as I detest Siri and avoid it like the plague. Turn by turn directions were added to both Apple and Google maps as an add-on function, neither app was designed primarily to be a navigation app.
