    So..it means sing Google Now to activate features of the Moto X shouldn't require a WIFI/Mobile Data connection right?

    Yes, until the latest update the service just didn't report the way it should. It would be days or weeks later if at all.

    What do you mean by latest update? Are you talking about a firmware update like what the T-Mobile X got, or just an app update?

    Maybe I missed it, but a sticky with a list of Google now commands would be cool.

    Sweet, I'll start playing with it again. Taking the youngest to McDonalds for lunch. Will see if the location alert works.

    Also, when you get the new update, make sure to update the offline language pack.

    Still no luck. I told it to give me a reminder when I got to McDonalds and it didn't. I was there for 45 minutes while my kid played at playland and when I got in my car to drive away, BAM, up comes the reminder.

    That's what mine does, too.

    Since I have unlimited 4G, I never use WiFi. I wonder if it would work better if I had WiFi on. It would see my home access point and maybe come up quicker?

    Time to experiment!

    I just made my own to-do list with location based notifications in Tasker. I even have it give me the most useful list on my lock screen. It works way better but I have to tell it any location I want to use ahead of time. I can't just say "McDonald's" I have to find the McDonald's I want to use and make a geofence around it. That means it works super well for places I go to a lot (Target, grocery store, work, relative's/friend's house, etc) but not so well for places I only need reminders for rarely. Though neither work that well in Google Now, so I guess I'm still ahead.

    Cool. I flit between devices for my job so I usually try not to get addicted to any 3rd party apps but I might have to check it out.

    One thing that has been bugging me that last several days is that Google Now keeps putting up a card for my navigation time to work. The problem is, it's a location 22 miles away, in another city. Also if I go into Google Maps to see what my 'work' and 'home' locations are set at, they are 100% correct so I don't know where that new spot is coming from.

    Try going to Google Now > Settings > My stuff > Places

    To be honest I find the most useful part to be the personal assistant aspect. Like how it shows you time to work and home, my stocks and sports teams, plus it reminds me of my friends birthday!

    Yeah, that has the same correct work place as it does when i do it from a web browser.

    What I did was tell my phone that the wrong place WAS my work address, then I went back in and edited back to the right one and it seems to be working.

    Since I didn't see it listed, I use it to get the score of a game I want to check.
