    Suppose I've got a contact named John Johnson, and I have his home address in his contact entry. If I go into Google Maps and type "John Johnson" in the search box, it won't find him. If I go into Navigation and type "John Johnson" as my destination, it won't find him. They'll find businesses with "Johnson" in the name out on the 'net, but they won't find the contact stored in my phone.

    I know I can go into Navigation and see a list of contacts to select John Johnson and navigate to his house, but that's kind of silly. Especially when I'm driving, and all I want to do is, in S-Voice, say "Navigate to John Johnson" or in Maps, hit search, then hit the voice button and say "John Johnson" so I don't have to type it and drive into a tree.

    Am I doing something wrong? Is there some magic invocation I have to do to get it to search my contacts?
