    Hi,

    I went from the Galaxy Nexus to the Droid Maxx on Verizon a few days ago. Loving the much improved signal strength and battery life, as well as no longer having to wait 30 seconds before being able to type in a URL in Chrome!!!

    Question....on my GNex, when I created a calendar appointment, I could type in a location, and it would grab things from my history and my address book. Then it would give me a warning enough time in advance to get there.

    On the Maxx, I can type out a complete address and it will give me a warning that takes the drive time into account, but it is not bringing up any suggestions from my history or address book. Is this because Motorola has their own custom calendar program and the GNex had a true Android calendar? Any way to resolve it? It was very handy when scheduling appointments with significant drive time so I'd get advance warning based on where I am that day.

    +1 for downloading the Google calendar from the play store and disabling the Motorola one. I did the same because I needed to invite others to meetings through my exchange account. I can do it on the Google calendar but not the native app.

    Thanks. So is it necessary to disable the installed calendar or do the run side by side? What about "Calendar Storage" in the apps list right below Calendar? Just wondering what the least amount of conflicts will be......disabling or just letting both calendars run.

    No, you can leave the stock calendar. Just turn off notifications in that app. It's probably easier to do it before you install the play edition app so you won't get confused about which app to disable notifications in...

    Thanks. Done. I'll get back to this thread if I find any issues with this setup. So far so good!
