    When I switched back to Android and started using Google Now, I set up both my home and work locations. I got into Google Now and access those locations and there's nothing that I can do, at least that I can figure out, to delete those locations and have none. I can edit them but there's no option to delete. Is this even possible once those locations have been set?

    I would try doing that via your computer.

    go to the google maps site and click on the gear (should be in the bottom right of the screen) then hit my places. You can delete them in there.

    Just open up Google now, and press the magic wand icon at the bottom of the screen. That brings you to the customization screen. There you'll see places, where you can alter home and work

    I tried that and it only allows me to modify. I'd like to delete them but it's no big deal as I don't have traffic enabled in Google now and keep GPS off unless I'm navigating. I have the Google Wi-Fi/Mobile Network serve as my GPS medium for apps that require it other than Maps.

    Use the method I posted. Gives you an option to delete.

    @y2whisper. I now have it deleted from Google Maps, but the home location keeps coming back like a bad penny in Google Now.

    I hate the way I keep getting reminded of the "time to home", but value the messages about other locations

    No it'seems not possible at all period. People on this forum state it can be done on the Google maps site and click on the gear icon. Firstly there is no gear icon. It is not possible to delete places on Google now.

    There is no gear icon on the bottom right of the screen period. Stop giving bad advice. It is not possible to be done period.

    Go to Google Maps on a desktop browser. Log-in to Google if you haven't already. Click on the three horizontal bars at the upper left. (I believe this is generally called the "overflow menu" icon.) Click on "Your Places." Click on "Labeled." Each item has an "x" on the right of it. Click an "x" to delete the item.

    That might work on your phone but not mine, I tried that prior to coming to this site.

    Has a resolution been found to this? I am having this problem and can't find a way to do it. It's so ******* frustrating.

    Again, before people say go to Google Maps. I have NOTHING set or labeled as "Work" in Google Maps, whether I use Mobile or Desktop.

    But on Google Now, it randomly added an address that you can only modify. But not remove.

    Same issue here. I deleted the work location from maps (on desktop); but that has zero impact on Google Now continuing to show me drive time to my former employer each morning.
