Google Now's Location Card doesn't like Washington State.
All it ever does is try to navigate using the least convenient route and there's no way to override.
Out here, if you don't live in Seattle but you work there, you're forced to endure a nightmare of a commute and then eventually take one of three bridges: I-5 south, 90, or 520. Of those, 520 is a toll bridge with outrageous pricing only during commute hours; clearly punitive. I was paying it at first but eventually realized that it wasn't worth saving 10 minutes by paying nearly $8 a day. So now I take the I-5 south.
The problem is the card wants to send you to the 520 because it sees it as the fastest way - and it is, but in Google Maps, you can tell it to avoid toll roads. The card doesn't honor this setting nor does it have one of its own.
I don't use it for navigation, rather to get a good estimate of my commute time just before I leave for work. I've been itching for something exactly like this for years and can't wait to get it up on a touch screen.
Anyone manage to get around this nonsense?
