Re: Google Now commute times
Same thing happened to me. I had a card pop up asking me if I cared about travel time to a new place, and at the time I didn't, so I touched, "No", and it disappeared.
Has anybody dismissed one of those "Do you care about traffic information to New Place" cards accidentally? For some reason Now asked me about traffic to my home address even though I have it set in Maps and have been receiving the traffic card for months. Well, when that new card popped up right behind my Traffic to Home card I immediately told it "No" since the cards had already been working correctly and I didn't want a second card for the same place. Unfortunately that seems to have caused some kind of havoc with my Traffic to Home card, because now it won't display. I have still received some traffic notifications, so I know it's tracking my commute, but it won't actually display the card.
Does anybody know how to reset that "Do you care about traffic information to New Place" setting??
Well, NOW I CARE! I've been searching and searching to try to find that one little question and change it from "No" to "Yes". Can't find anything anywhere. I've even been purposefully searching for the location before I leave and also use the navigation to get there to show a pattern of it being a regular location I travel to. Hell, I even starred it in my Google Maps. It still won't recognize the location which happens to be a popular large chain store in town.
Now when one of those cards pop up asking me if I care about anything having to do with a map I'm terrified to touch "No" on the off chance that in the future I just may care, so I touch "Yes" every single time. Even if it's a place I really don't care about, and most likely never will care about, I still touch, "Yes". You never really know what you may care about in the future. Google Now being set up to only accept a single "Yes" or "No" answer only once in your life when it comes to travel times and maps is pretty ridiculous.
It makes me think of Google Now being some smart *** punk who refuses to be considerate and help you out when you know they damn well could. Then they proceed to show you how you didn't want that information anymore, with a smirk on their face. "See, several months ago you said right here that you didn't care about this. I'm just giving you what you wanted."
