    Has it ever worked? there was at least one occasion where it stopped working for a bunch of people.

    Just worked for me.

    Also open the dialer and check settings to make sure its turned on along with your location settings.

    Sounds about right then. Really wish Google would speed that kind of stuff up. Put it this way, I'm in canada and switch everything to US on my devices to try to gain access to all the bells and whistles.

    You might want to turn on your Location Settings. That's what was wrong with mine.
