Default Please share GNOW Google Now Strange Recommndations

Hi,

Please share the strange recommendations that Google Now makes.

Google Now GNOW tells me that I should leave to go to work in places that I don't work, tells me to go home to where I don't live, reminds me to go to odd places like a carpet store that I have never been to and have no intention of visiting.

Have you had similar experiences? Would you please share them with me?

What is the cause?

thanks

In google latitude on a desktop. Have you set up your home and work locations? If not, then you're going to have incorrect information.

The information is incorrect because google now is attempting to learn where you are for long periods of time.

Change your information in latitude and you'll see a huge difference.

Exactly.

And I have had pretty good experiences with Google Now, tells me to save other locations like my parents home and my girlfriends apartment, all correctly.

I really enjoy it

EDIT: Moving this thread into the Android Applications forum since you are discussing an app.
