Last week, the Cupertion based Apple obtained a U.S. trademark for "280", which was filed on Wednesday, April 21, 2010. Trademarkia records shows the maps icon Apple uses for its iOS navigation app; it's because it pinpoints the location of Apple's headquarters at Infinite Loop in Cupertino, California, right alongside Interstate 280.

Per the trademark description:

"The mark consists of a gray map with streets in gray and white and highways in yellow and orange, a highway sign in blue, yellow and red bearing the number "280" in white, and a gray and red pin."
