    I can't get it to let me start a second leg of the trip. I think it might be because it doesn't consider a pedestrian trail a viable road, but my motorcycle disagrees.
    Tell it you're walking or biking... and it might let you.

    Just speak loudly at the monitor (that's the display thingy on your computer) and google will listen.

    Also, if you have any suggestions for how to improve it... you should also do so in the same manner.

    It also recognizes rude hand gestures.

    Hope that helps.

    Yeah, I used her caller ID to give you a callback, but your mother picked up.

    We're having dinner at 11.

    Maybe they'll improve it soon.

    It'd be a lot simpler if they just gave a waypoint option, but whatever.

    Thank you.
    lol! You need directions home?

    I thought it was pretty simple to begin with. You sure you just don't have an allergy to google?

    It's not working, Jet.

    Maybe because the route I want to run is a giant loop?

    yeah, brother, it's super user friendly. Just play with it.

    You can even zoom in on MOST (not all) exact addresses and view it from street level (including 360 degree view) so you know what the neighborhood looks like.
