Maps/Contacts Oddity

    Noticed something weird, and not sure if it's an issue, or I'm doing something wrong (quite possible, just ask my wife...).

    If I go into Google Maps, and choose to get directions, then pick to choose my starting point from contacts, the list is blank. I would expect to see all my contacts, or at the very least, the ones with addresses.

    If I manually add a contact location in Google Maps (ie - choose a location, press and hold and choose to save as contact), this location shows up in Maps. It also however, shows up in my contacts application.

    Is it just me, or would you not think that my regular contacts should also show in maps?

    Any ideas?

    I feel stupid haha.

    When you go to search or directions in maps, don't click the button the right to open the contacts - just start typing and it searches your google contacts. :)
