    So it tells me I'm 10 minutes from work today. I'm at home. Let's see here. I've driven this same route for 10 years. Gee thanks Google. For the last 10 years I never knew how long it took me to get to work because I a friggen idiot.
    Then at work, it tells me 18 minutes from home. Guess I'm taking a different route back home today? Little/ no traffic here so go figure :)
    Time to turn this crap off.

    I need to figure out how to turn it off as well. It is completely and totally insanely useless. I've never seen a more useless application. Every time I open it, it tells me what the weather is and nothing else. I already have apps to tell me the weather. I don't need another one.

    I will say, when you have appts, it can be very useful, giving you time to leave notices. But yeah the time to home and time to work is a little off. It picks different routes, etc. I wish it would remember your preferred route and just use that. :p

    Indeed, there are some uses for it, like appointments, package tracking, and the voice assistant. I find many parts to be less than useful, and the battery drain that comes with using it to be an unwanted issue. That is why I just choose to not activate Google Now after each rom flash, and set the voice assistant app to be the long press of my added search button. That way I get the useful part without any of the negatives because this doesn't active Google Now. :)
