    Google search..... HOW TO?

    on the MOT droid if I held the search button down and did a voice search for starbucks or fedex or whatever it would bring up the closest ones to my location with their phone numbers in google on the browser.

    its not working that way on the INC is there a setting i need to apply to make it work?

    THANKS!!!

    Internet -> settings -> enable location. Google should auto detect your location after that

    yeah i tried that already but it turns on gps automatically. and i want to preserve battery life so i keep the gps unchecked which then puts location back to 911 only. am i missing something?
