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!
Long press on the navigation/bing maps icon to remove it. then hit the arrow to the next screen and create a new shortcut for Google Maps.
