Google Now (what?)
« on: July 27, 2012, 12:50:02 PM »
I have google now turned on for my Nexus 7, have had it for a week or so and traveled around different places, googled some of my favorite sports teams, etc. Disappointingly, none of the 'google now' magic is happening - the only card that shows is the weather. boring! i googled 'new york yankees' a few times, but it never shows any card with the scores or upcoming games. i have location services turned on (but not the gps receiver) and of course wifi is on. i clicked on my calendar and my appointments, etc are in there but i never get any appointment card showing.

Did you set up the cards?

At the bottom-right of the Google Now page you'll see a menu (3 vertical dots). From this menu, choose Settings then Google Now. At the top-right, make sure Now is switched on. Then go through each card setting it up and making sure the ones you want to see are turned on (switch at top-right, again).

You can also go to Google Maps on your PC's browser to set Home and Work locations. You might also need to go into Settings, Location Services and turn on the top and bottom icons.

Since the tablet only uses WiFi, it might not give results unless you're connected while out and about.
