localization - How can I get Google Maps on Android to show metric units?
Wednesday 30th of November 2011
Google Maps always shows me distance values for direction results / navigation in miles, although it does show me a scale on the map itself in metric units. I rather prefer to get my direction distances in metres/kilometres. Is there any way to achieve this in Google Maps? I searched a bit for this and suggestions seem to be to change locale in Settings > Language and Keyboard. Mine is currently set to English UK.

Google Maps and Navigation don't search contacts
Wednesday 15th of May 2013
Suppose I've got a contact named John Johnson, and I have his home address in his contact entry. If I go into Google Maps and type "John Johnson" in the search box, it won't find him. If I go into Navigation and type "John Johnson" as my destination, it won't find him. They'll find businesses with "Johnson" in the name out on the 'net, but they won't find the contact stored in my phone. I know I can go into Navigation and see a list of contacts to select John Johnson and navigate to his house, but that's kind of silly. Especially when I'm driving, and all I want to do is, in S-Voice, say "Navigate to John Johnson" or in Maps, hit search, then hit the voice button and say "John Johnson" so I don't have to type it and drive into a tree. Am I doing something wrong? Is there some magic invocation I have to do to get it to search my contacts?

How do I get google maps voice navigation to include street names and numbers?
Thursday 19th of March 2015
At present the navigator voice directs turning in X meters or kilometers. I want her to include the name of the street. Often the instruction is to turn left, but it is still before the correct street, making it possible to follow the instruction, and turning too early.
