    When viewing an individual contact in People (Contacts, Address Book equiv.) the single address field contains the street, city , state and zip. (The Google Contacts, which is the source for the 'People' is also a single field for street, city ,state, zip.) The latter part of the field (zip, state and sometimes city), does not show up without clicking on the address, loading the map (with GPS running) and then clicking on the address balloon in the map.


    Is there an easier way that I should be doing this to read the entire address for a contact?

    I'm in for an answer too. I was trying to give someone my bro's new address and I had to bring up maps to read it all.

    Found a fix to this solution if someone already hasn't found one. You simply just use the optical pad to highlight the address field and while the field is highlighted the address will scroll across the screen. :rolleyes:
