Autocompleting Forms with Google Maps
Ubilabs has released Geocomplete a jQuery plugin that wraps the Google Maps API's Geocoding and Places Autocomplete services. Using the plugin you can simply add a search box to a Google Map which will autocomplete suggestions as the user types.
You can also use the plugin to autocomplete a form with the user's address details. The plugin has an option to include a form that will be populated with the address details. Once the user selects a location from the autocomplete search their details will automatically be added to the form.
