    Google Navigation

    When I speak into google voice search and a list of destinations is shown. How are these destinations organized? By physical distance or by time it would take? I've checked a couple of the destinations and it seems to be pretty random.

    I really wish the destinations showed how many miles it is from my current location or something.

    Thanks!

    Thank you for your reply. Can you explain what exactly you mean by relevance? If I do a voice search for Walmart wouldn't all the search results be relevant, if they are the actual store.

    say you search for "walmart." the results might be something like this

    walmart
    walmart auto
    walmart pharmacy
    walmart super store

    the first result will be the closest match to the search term. then the following ones not so much.

    then again google probably has a secret algorithm. so we'll never know
