    Default Question about Google Now

    In all of the screen shots showing off Google Now, there is always an image of a card showing meeting with someone at a particular location, the time it takes to arrive at that location, and a map of the meeting location. I have not been able to figure out how to get Google now to do this.

    Presumably, that is a function that arises from a Google Calendar appointment. I've created meeting appointments and used specific addresses for the meeting location, but when Google Now displays that appointment, it displays the name of the meeting and the address only - no travel time and no map. In contrast, for places that I visit regularly, Google Now does display a map and travel time to those locations. But those are not regular appointments.

    Has anyone observed this? Am I missing something here?

    I'm not really sure to be honest. It's possible it aggregated from an email sent to the user's gmail.

    It's 50/50 for me, took a while for those to start showing up and it's still not every calendar appointment that works.

    Thanks for the responses. I've observed that it does seem to work when the meeting location is the address for one of my contacts (which Google Calendar automatically detects when I'm entering a location). But if I enter an address manually, it won't work.

    At least others have experienced this as well.
