    I'm running KitKat on my Galaxy S4 from Verizon.

    For the past month or so, whenever I try doing this with Google Now I get a Google search rather than Google Maps loading up the way to home or work. I can, "Navigate to [contact]," just not home or work. I used to be able to navigate to these places by just using my voice through Google Now. All of a sudden it just seemed to stop working, and I have no clue why. I'm afraid it might be something with my account rather than my phone.

    I've tried clearing caches, removing home and work on Google Maps (desktop and mobile) and then re-adding them, but nothing works. All of the remedies I've read about, I've tried. Nothing.

    Then I wondered if this (see screenshot) is the reason. Is Google Maps supposed to show up here in this list (Google Now > Settings > Phone Search)? If so, how would I get it there?

    Can't "Navigate Home" or "Navigate to Work."  Is this the reason why?-ojdmzny.jpg

    I updated the Google app, but still nothing.

    Guys I've found a fix for "navigate to home/work". I just started having this problem today, and signing out of Google Now and signing back in will do the trick. Go to Settings - - > Account & privacy then click on Google Account then sign out.
    Hope it helps because it did for me.

    Did you log back in after you log out? Basically Google Search goes into this limbo mode sometimes where it is neither log in or log out.

    Try resetting app preferences. Settings>Apps>>menu>reset app preferences. This sometimes helps with some Google issues.

    Thanks for the idea, but still no change.
