Search is best used for finding places in Roadtrippers' categories when the name is known, rather than for generic words such as "coffee" or "diner". For keywords such as those, use a coordinating category, like "Cafes & Bakeries" or "Diners & Drive-ins".
Searched places will appear in the same as ones in categories, with a pin matching its category. They can be opened and added to trips and saved to bucket lists.
