The thing that pisses me off is that when I do a search from Google search it re-routes through Bing. I installed Dolphin Browser HD and it stays Google so I'm good there. All of the Google apps are available in the market. Google Maps works great! I just hate how the car home app defaults to VZ Navigator when you hit Navigate. I haven't been able to change that yet. And the map selection opens Bing maps.
Installing Google Search and voice search did not result in allowing me to choose Google as my default action for my search button. I just wish I could get rid of Bing without rooting. I'll probably just end up rooting it though!
